Child Pornography Charges Can Be Devastating

Child pornography charges today are based almost exclusively on computers and the internet. The use of file sharing sites and other types of websites can leave a trail of evidence that the police may be able to access without you even being aware. That situation is complicated by the fact that computers are often shared or left in areas where multiple people can access them.

Child pornography charges can devastate a person's family, professional reputation and standing within the community. Child Protective Services may remove your children. While it may be difficult to overcome the shock of such charges, it is critical that you begin taking action to defend your rights and your future as soon as possible.
