Contact Our Military Sex Crime Lawyer Today

If you have been named as a suspect in an investigation involving child pornography, you cannot afford any delay in hiring a military criminal defense attorney. There is too much at stake for you to take any chances with the outcome of this situation. Remember: It is not safe for you to speak with the investigators without having your lawyer present to advise you of what to say - and what not to say. Contact McCormack & McCormack as soon as possible so that we can advise you of strategies to help you avoid further incriminating yourself.

Producing, downloading, viewing or distributing images or videos which depict children engaged in sexual activity is a felony criminal offense under federal law, and this category of sex crime is the subject of intense scrutiny by civilian and military law enforcement agencies. The fact that an individual has been accused will often lead others to assume that he or she is guilty, regardless of the fact that a suspect is legally considered innocent until proven guilty.

In the event that you are convicted on the charges, you could suffer consequences including several years of confinement, dishonorable discharge and loss of benefits, as well as other penalties associated with felony crimes such as loss of ability to vote or to possess a firearm. In addition, you would most likely end up being required to register as a sex offender in whatever state you chose to live post-discharge, exposing you to serious social stigma for years or perhaps the rest of your life depending on the laws of that state.

Strategies for Child Pornography Defense

As dire as the situation may be, you still have a chance of avoiding such a disastrous outcome. A skilled attorney may be able to clear your name by filing a motion to suppress the evidence after demonstrating that you were the victim of a search which was executed without a warrant or probable cause. Alternatively, advanced digital forensics strategies may be used to reveal that yours was not the computer which accessed the website or that another person used your computer or your wireless network to download the files. There are many ways to approach the situation, but every strategy depends entirely for its success on you taking action now.
