Sex crimes defense attorney in Chicago

Child pornography refers to a general category of offenses covering images or movies, sometimes even script or writing that portray children in sexually explicit activities. Federal law delineates the specifics as to what exactly constitutes child porn and to what degree. All states have laws making it a crime to obtain for the purpose of viewing, to possess, to make or to distribute any kind of material where children are depicted or used in a sexual manner. Violating these laws can mean a person faces both federal and state charges. This is such a serious crime that it necessitates the experienced know-how of a child pornography Chicago criminal defense attorney to protect the accused individual’s legal rights. This is no time for delay or indecision.

Accused of child pornography in the Chicago, Cicero, Berwyn or Evanston areas?

Child pornography or child porn is any portrayal, including photographic, movie or videotape recording, manufactured image, representation or picture; no matter how images are produced (electronically, computer-generated, mechanically or otherwise), if it depicts or represents sexual activities either with a minor (person under the age of 18) or by a minor, it is considered to fall under this category. It carries a severe penalty, criminal record and stigma that can last a lifetime if convicted.

The FBI has been known to engage in sting operations using bogus hyperlinks to catch child porn suspects. Even photo shops that develop film are on alert to possible instances of child pornography, although the age of digital photography and photo-adaptive cell phones can easily circumvent this. With public outrage over sex offenses come various national registry sites listing those convicted of sex crimes, of which child pornography is an included category. Once a person has been convicted of a sex crime he or she becomes a registered sex offender, returning to any semblance of “normal” life even after serving a prison term is a major problem if not impossible.

He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was...

"I am so appreciative of the help and support that I received from Michael and his team members! They truly helped me figure out my case and I got outstanding results. If anyone can help you get great results, it’s Michael. I had an immigration issue as well and he worked with my immigration lawyer to help find the best solution. He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was. I definitely don’t want to go through any of this again but I’m glad that I had the support to get through this."
