Experience Counts When Defending Against Sex Crime Charges
Attorney Peter Aiken, a former federal prosecutor, and Attorney Sean O’Halloran, a former state prosecutor, have more than 50 years of combined experience defending against serious sex crime charges. The penalties for a child pornography conviction may include prison, sex offender registration and a felony criminal record that could follow you for the rest of your life. The stakes are high, and you need experienced legal representation as soon as possible.
Developing Effective Defense Strategies
Effectively defending against child pornography charges requires experience, determination and extensive knowledge of the relevant technology. Developing an effective defense strategy also requires a thorough understanding of how law enforcement investigates and prosecutes child pornography cases. As former prosecutors, our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of these matters and are well-positioned to mount the strongest possible defense in a given case. Depending on the facts of your case, any of the following may apply in your defense strategy:
- You may have a technical defense.
- Your phone or computer may have been unlawfully seized.
- Your home may have been unlawfully searched.
- You may have been unlawfully questioned.
Many child pornography cases involve peer-to-peer computer applications where images of underage children have been exchanged or transmitted. In some instances, child porn may have been allegedly created by the accused, and sexual battery charges may be pending or possible. Whatever your situation may be, we strongly encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.
