Child Pornography Defense

You or someone you love has been accused of the possession, distribution of transportation of child pornography. You are desperate for answers. You have no idea the extent of the evidence piled up against you. You aren’t sure just how bad the situation could become.

Questions nag at you, keeping you awake at night:

  • Can my case even be won?
  • Can my reputation be salvaged?
  • Is my military career over? What about my civilian career?
  • What will happen if I’m found guilty?
  • How long will I be in prison?

Bilecki & Tipon has fought for service members accused of child pornography in the military for decades. We’re often the only law firm with the tenacity and resolve to take up such cases. Other law firms will refuse to even look at the evidence before making a decision about you.

These other attorneys often see a lost cause. We see a service member in need of an ally during some of the darkest days of their lives.

And we see a case that can be fought and won. If you believe in your freedom and understand the ramifications of a victory—or a defeat—in your child pornography case, then you owe it to yourself and those you love to contact Bilecki & Tipon right now, before the prosecution’s case is prepared and your trial date is set.

Here’s What You Need to Know about Cases Involving Child Pornography

You will be hit hard—harder than 99% of all court-martial cases. The government will come after you with all the resources at its disposal. Multiple prosecutors, forensic evidence, and expert witness testimony are just the beginning. The jury, no matter how well-selected, will be biased against you. And the prosecution knows it. So, perhaps, do you.

The emotion in the courtroom will feel tangible. Few crimes are perceived as hideously as child abuse, child exploitation, and child pornography. If your defense does not harness the outrage and disgust of the jury and turn it on the prosecution, then your case is as good as lost.

Most defense attorneys have no idea how to handle a jury’s emotional response in court. Without that capability, you will lose your case spectacularly.

A Guilty Verdict in a Child Pornography Case

You may be wondering what the worst case scenario is for child pornography trial. Here are just a few ramifications of a trial which ends in a guilty verdict:

  • The videos and pictures that will be seen in court will be graphic, horrific, and utterly devastating to your reputation. Family and friends that believed you were innocent before may walk out of court that instant. Only a not-guilty verdict can repair the damage to your reputation.
  • The jury was not able to withstand the raw emotion they feel by being in the presence of who they believe is a child predator. Expect a significant prison sentence and sex offender status for the rest of your life. Your life in prison will be incredibly difficult. Even hardened criminals despise child abusers.
  • Your life will not get easier once you’re out of prison. You will likely never hold a civilian job ever again. Your military benefits will disappear. Government housing may be your only option—but even that will be uncertain.

You must consider the possibility that this could be your life. This could be your future. You owe it to yourself to fight as hard as possible for the best possible outcome in your case.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Forensic Evidence Is Used in a Child Pornography Case?

Forensic evidence is any evidence obtained by scientific methods. In the case of child pornography, this is usually digital evidence found on computers, cellphones, tablets and other electronic devices.

Forensic evidence is often the cornerstone of the prosecution’s case against you. It is imperative that you have a defense team that can put that evidence into question or eliminate it from the court hearing entirely.

Can We Use the Prosecution’s Own Forensic Evidence Against Them?

You bet. In fact, we do it all the time. We have a certified digital forensic examiner on staff.

Bilecki & Tipon has a reputation for winning unwinnable cases because we go to incredible lengths to protect our clients. Hiring forensic experts to review evidence and refute claims made by the prosecution is both expensive and time-consuming. Most defense attorneys will attempt to win your case without such expert testimony. We don’t see how you can win your case without it.

Always consult your defense attorney regarding their experience in working with digital forensic evidence. Your future could depend on it.

Do You Have a Process for Winning Child Pornography Cases?

Absolutely. We’ve been doing this for a long time. We know how to win these kinds of cases in court.

Most child pornography cases revolve around three central questions:

  • Was the law enforcement search of the digital media legal?
  • Are the images actually child pornography?
  • Did the service member know of or intentionally possess child pornography?

We’ll perform our own investigation and review the prosecution’s case against you. Only then will we decide on a plan of attack. We may come at the prosecution with evidence suggesting “no” to all three of those questions. Other times, just undermining one aspect of the prosecution’s case is enough to bring the whole thing tumbling down around them.
