Being accused of possessing and/or distributing child pornography are extremely serious criminal charges, and unfortunately, in the modern electronic age, innocent people may be charged with child pornography for accidentally downloading content from unsavory websites or in the event their computer is infected with a virus.
While child pornography charges can result in years in prison upon conviction, even those who are ultimately acquitted of these charges (or who are convicted on less serious charges) can experience a devastating fallout from them, as they may lose their reputation, family and even career just for being charged with child pornography.
At Flesch & Beck Law, our Denver sex crimes defense lawyers understand how serious these charges are, and we are dedicated to helping the accused resolve their cases as favorably and expeditiously as possible. We believe in the ideal that the accused are innocent until proven guilty, and our extensive experience in defending the accused against child pornography charges helps us consistently mount formidable defense cases for our clients.
While the best defense strategy to fight child pornography charges will depend on the specific facts of the case, as well as whether the individual has a criminal record (or is currently a Colorado sex offender), in general, potential defense strategies against these charges can include arguments that:
- The police used illegal entrapment techniques to gather evidence against the defendant.
- Police illegally searched the defendant’s property and illegally seized alleged evidence against him
- Computer forensics in the case are inaccurate or indeterminate.
- The computer, device or property containing the child pornography did not, in fact, belong to the defendant, and the defendant had no knowledge of the illegal images or footage.
