Child Porn & Computer Sex Crimes Lawyer In Roxbury, NJ

Criminal Defense Attorney Helping Clients In Morris County And Throughout North Jersey

Law enforcement takes any crime involving children very seriously.  However, crimes that involve child pornography and internet solicitation are another level of seriousness entirely. Not only do police and the courts see sex crimes involving children as especially heinous, but the public also shares this view. A conviction on charges of sharing or making pornography involving children can result in life-changing legal penalties. Even if you are never convicted, the social and personal consequences will be very harsh.

Morris County Defense Lawyer For Computer Sex Crime Charges

If you are facing child pornography or computer sex crime charges, it is essential to find an experienced and diligent lawyer to defend you—one who will give your case the sustained attention it deserves. At our law firm, James M. Porfido Attorney At Law, LLC, our attorney has more than 20 years of experience defending people in the area around Morristown, New Jersey against all types of serious criminal charges. Clients rely on him to fight hard for the best possible outcomes, whatever the charges.

Penalties In New Jersey For Child Porn And Computer Sex Crimes Convictions

Child pornography: If convicted in federal court of the creation or distribution of child pornography, you could be facing up to 40 years in federal prison. (Federal charges typically involve crossing state lines while committing a crime.) Charges involving the distribution of child pornography via the Internet are usually federal crimes. Child pornography charges are often “enhanced,” depending on the age of the children involved, the kinds of acts portrayed, and the brutality of the images. Possession is more likely to be a state crime, which has lower penalties—usually a maximum of a 10-year prison sentence.  

Whatever level of charges you face, a conviction means that you face state or federal prison time, fines, and required registration on the sex offender registry. You also face ostracism, possible job loss, and family disruption.

Computer sex crimes: These charges can include online solicitation of a child intending to commit a crime. Online pornography can also be considered a computer sex crime. Online solicitation is a second degree crime that carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison and probable registration on the New Jersey sex offender registry.

Because these charges have severe, life-long consequences, it is essential to have an attorney who is willing to fight for you. James Porfido is a criminal defense lawyer known for his commitment to clients. He works hard to protect their rights and their futures.

How James Porfido Can Help You With Your Computer Sex Crimes Case

Although each case is different, we always take the following steps:

  • Make sure the charges fit the alleged crime.  Prosecutors sometimes charges at a higher level than is warranted so that a reduction in charges still results in a conviction.
  • Make sure the evidence is solid.
  • Make sure that any evidence about intent to commit a crime is real.
  • Make sure that you – and not another party – accessed the Internet. It is often easy to use another person’s laptop or desktop, leading to charges being levied against the wrong person.

When required, we employ investigators and forensic computer specialists to find the truth and ensure that our clients’ rights are protected.
