Child pornography crimes usually involve a client who possesses or distributes images or films depicting sexually explicit activities involving a child. One can imagine just by watching the news or reading the paper that these crimes are charged very often and are viewed by prosecutors and courts as extremely serious. When one is charged with crimes relating to child pornography, a federal criminal defense attorney must pay special attention to the client's arrest and subsequent search and seizure, which usually involves the taking of your computer with or without a warrant.
On top of very important arrest and search issues, the federal sentencing guidelines and statutory mandatory minimums also play a big role in these cases. Our lawyers at Sullivan & Brill are experienced in representing clients with child pornography offenses in New York City, Puerto Rico, and other districts throughout the United States. We are available to help you or someone you know when the federal government charges them with child pornography crimes.
