Los Angeles Internet Pornography Defense Lawyer
LEARN WHAT WILL CAUSE THE PROSECUTORS TO FILE A INTERNET PORNOGRAPHY CHARGE AGAINST SOMEONE
Believe it or not, prosecutors have not been filing Internet related offenses for this long. When a new technology is introduced to society that people can manipulate for their own sexual interests, it takes a while for the government to act and come up with a strategy to deal with what can clearly be viewed as as crime. There were a lot of factors that must be considered before prosecutors began prosecuting Internet Pornography. They realize that smart criminal defense attorneys would attack their cases in anyway possible.
The first key is that they have to be able to show that the person they believe is guilty was actually the one involved with the crime and that it was not someone else using their computer. They track IP addresses and when they serve the search warrant in a case where they believe that someone illegally used the Internet for Child Pornography, they use good old fashion investigation to prove their case. When they get into the home and seize the subject computer, they ask everyone in the home whose computer it is. They will ask the person point blank who they suspect of illegal activity if that is their computer and if anyone else uses it. The point is, when they come in, they are coming in with a plan and an eye towards sealing up their conviction right from the beginning.
As you might guess, with this type of sophistication, you need a criminal defense attorney who is familiar with these type of cases and how to defend them.
