Child Pornography

Houston Child Pornography Lawyer

Texas and federal laws against child pornography can subject a person to harsh penalties including incarceration in prison and lifetime registration as a sex offender. A conviction for possession or distribution of child pornography can cost you your job and destroy your family relationships. You need to act quickly to protect your reputation.

A Houston Child Pornography Defensive Strategies

If have been charged with or are under investigation for possession or distribution of child pornography, you must immediately contact a knowledgeable and aggressive Houston child pornography lawyer at Rand Mintzer, Attorney at Law. Child pornography cases are usually based on evidence obtained from your computer after it has been seized by law enforcement. Early formulation of a defensive strategy is essential to investigate and pursue potential defenses including:

  • Other people having access to the computer
  • False accusations stemming from divorce or child custody proceedings
  • Accidental downloading or spam email
  • Simulations mistaken for actual depiction of a child
