Philadelphia Possessing Child Pornography Lawyers

Philadelphia Possessing Child Pornography Lawyer
Many people underestimate the severity of child pornography charges. People accused of this crime face years in prison, high fines, a lifetime of sexual offender registration, and public humiliation. This is a time when you need an experienced attorney to defend your freedom and your reputation.

Penalties for Possessing Child Pornography

Pennsylvania is one of the toughest states in which to fight any charges related to child pornography. In addition to severe federal penalties, the state has imposed additional consequences under recent child abuse laws. Even one file judged to be child pornography on a phone or computer is a third-degree felony with a maximum sentence of five years in prison. Possession of more than one file is a second-degree felony with up to ten years in prison. Each file is an additional offense.

Punishments for each individual video or photo can quickly add up to a lifetime behind bars. In addition, some people convicted of this crime have had to register as child sex offenders. This will follow you for the rest of your life, impacting your ability to find work, the neighborhoods in which you can live, and your ability to be around even your own children.

In addition, these allegations can affect your relationships with friends and family. You will lose your job if your employer knows even of charges.

This is not a battle you can fight on your own. You need an experienced attorney who will fight for your rights and ensure that you get the skilled defense that you deserve.

Defending Your Rights at this Difficult Time

State and federal laws define a wide range of photos and videos as child pornography. A “child” is defined as anyone under 18 years old, even if they are just a day away from their eighteenth birthday or appear much older than their age.

The internet has made it easy for people to unwittingly view or possess child pornography. You may believe that the person on your screen is an adult. You may have been sent the offending material without your consent, or believed that you were receiving a very different video.

However, it is difficult to convince a jury that you did not willingly possess or view this material. It is even more difficult to convince the court of public opinion. You need someone on your side who believes you.

Proven Defense Strategies

Although the laws are incredibly strict on possession of child pornography, there are ways to defend yourself against these allegations. The evidence is often obtained by search and seizure that may not have been obtained according to the constraints of our Constitution. In addition, we can hire the nation’s best forensic computer experts to prove that the files were downloaded without your consent or never even viewed.

The prosecution has hundreds of experts working on their side. You deserve to have access to the same experts as we build your defense.

"I found Michael Kotik via the internet with the hope by someone to help my son in what we thought was something routine. Long story short after being mislead by the prior firm and received no results and my son sat for 18 months in prison because "no one knew what was going on" Michael was able to not only..."
