Child Pornography Molestation
Baton Rouge Child Pornography Defense Lawyers
If you have been accused of, or charged with child pornography or molestation, you are facing very determined law enforcement and prosecution. The penalties upon conviction are also very severe. Charges may be brought for production, distribution, or mere possession of child pornography.
If the Internet or even mail across state lines is implicated, it may be federal prosecutors that bring charges. They have even greater expertise and financial power than state prosecutors. But the prosecution must prove that it was you who knowingly downloaded, viewed and/or saved the child porn and not someone else that had access to your computer.
Molestation and Child Pornography Defense
Charges of child molestation are unique in that children are easily manipulated. Juries are also very sympathetic toward them.
- Parties in contentious divorce or custody proceedings have been known to encourage children to say the other parent "touched" them a certain way or otherwise imply molestation.
- Child care workers, pastors, teachers, coaches, and others are frequently falsely accused. Parents have even been known to target individuals for extortion by coaching children.
- They may be coached by well-meaning social service and health care professionals, law enforcement officers, and prosecuting attorneys who want to make sure they obtain a conviction regardless of the truth.
On the other hand, those taking testimony from children are expected to follow accepted guidelines to avoid false testimony. Police or prosecutors who fail to adhere to these, or are unaware of them, seriously damage their own case.
