Defense Against Child Pornography Accusations
Online child pornography can carry serious charges in state or federal court. Sometimes you will face both state and federal charges because arguments can be made that internet activity crosses state lines. If a nighttime sting operation preceded the charges, you are probably terrified of what is going to happen.
At Mahaffey & Associates, we have defended clients against these types of charges across the Toledo metro. Our lawyers can defend you against child pornography charges whether they have been filed in Ohio state or federal court. We provide strong advocacy by challenging evidence and the manner in which it was gathered.
Call 419-741-0111 immediately. Our skilled criminal defense attorneys can start fighting right away to protect your rights.
We represent clients from all walks of life who have never had any contact with law enforcement or a criminal court. Our goal is to minimize the potential consequences.
You are innocent until proven guilty. The burden rests on the prosecution to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.
Law enforcement officers must follow certain procedural rules in applying for and conducting a search. For instance, a problem with a search warrant could mean that the prosecution would not be able to use seized evidence at trial. We will conduct our own investigation to identify all available defenses whether they relate to chain of custody or access to a computer.
You will be able to reach us throughout the process. We may be able to negotiate an out-of-court resolution, but we prepare each case for trial. Our defense lawyers strive to limit potential stigma and avoid sex offender registration requirements when possible.
Protect Your Future
A sex offense conviction carries the potential of a lengthy prison sentence and sex offender registration requirements.
