Minimizing the Effect of Child Porn Charges

In the age of technology, it is easier than ever to find the information we want or need. Although this can be beneficial for work and play, it can also be dangerous. With a little bit of searching, almost anyone can find child pornography. Just clicking on an inappropriate picture traces it to your computer, and there are also a number of viruses which automatically download porn to your computer.

The same ease that allows people to find pornography is the same lead authorities have when they are looking for criminals. Some people are slapped with charges after the police search their computer, while other people are lured in by officers pretending to be young children. Regardless of the bait you followed, if you are facing charges for possession of child pornography, it is important to find a lawyer who can give you the aggressive defense you need.

Damage Control in Child Pornography Cases

When I work with clients who are facing charges for child pornography, damage control is one of my first obligations. I get clients into counseling programs to show the court you are taking affirmative steps to turn your life around. If your computer was exposed to spam or viruses, I may be able to show you did not know about the porn or did not download it intentionally. I work hard to mitigate the charges and the impact it will have on your life.

A Strong Defense for College Student Crimes

College is a stressful time for many people. Students are worried about getting good grades so they can get into graduate school or land the most coveted positions. Many students adopt a “work hard, play hard” mentality. After studying hard all week, students are ready to blow off some steam on the weekends.

Unfortunately, if you get caught drinking and driving or using illegal drugs, everything you have worked for is at stake. If you are a college student who is facing criminal charges, it is important to contact an experienced lawyer to protect your freedom, criminal record and future.

Criminal Charges College Students Face

If you are arrested for criminal activity, you may be worried about the impact the charges will have on the rest of your life. Some students worry about losing their scholarships, becoming ineligible to play at sports or how a criminal record will look on their resume. I defend college students who are facing charges for crimes, including:

  • Drunk driving (DUI)
  • Drug possession
  • Car accidents and leaving the scene of an accident
  • Theft and shoplifting
  • Destruction of property

Many college students are able to apply for a youthful offender status. If this is granted, the court record is sealed, and you can truthfully state that you have not been arrested. Protect your future by contacting a lawyer who will fight aggressively defend your college student crime.

Domestic Violence

An Aggressive Defense Against Domestic Violence Charges

Married people fight. It is an innate characteristic of many marriages. Although fighting is normal, sometimes anger gets blown out of proportion. In a rage of anger, men may threaten their wives and women may hit their husbands. In a calm state of mind, most people recognize that that behavior is not acceptable, but when tempers are flying, some people have a hard time controlling their actions.

Unfortunately, that does not make the criminal charges any less real. If you are facing charges for domestic violence or spousal abuse, the actions of a few angry fights could change the rest of your life. It is important to find a lawyer who will help protect your freedom.

Consequences of Domestic Violence Convictions

Most domestic violence cases are two-fold. In addition to the domestic violence charges, you may also need to respond to Protection from Abuse orders. If convicted, you can never possess a firearm again. This law could be detrimental to people who are in the army or law enforcement, or people who hunt recreation ally.
