Have you been accused? Has a client you are counseling confessed to illegal child sex abuse? Then call us before the police become involved. An early defense makes for a strong defense.
If you are charged with an offense of this type in Denver, Lakewood or Aurora, you can count on the government coming to your home to take your computer. The police will then search your computer’s hard drive for images of children or any other evidence. The police will be able to locate deleted and nondeleted files and images off a hard drive. Government software can recover files thought to be deleted by the user with a special computer program. Images are often unintentionally stored on a person’s computer without his or her knowledge through conventional pop-ups. At that point, the government asserts that you are responsible for whatever is on your hard drive, even if you have deleted the file or never even saw the file. Many people in our country regularly perform sweeps or cleaning of their hard drives to make detection of deleted files very difficult.
We have successfully defended Internet sex crimes by employing forensic computer experts who can testify that images can and do arrive on computers unnoticed by the machine’s owner.
Of course, the best defense is to never have conversations of any type with children or people posing as children, under 15. You must never exchange or request photos of children under the age of 18, clothed or unclothed. It is not advisable to suggest playing or participate in role playing with anyone in the role of a child, as well. Clever Castle Rock police tactics can result in internet-based sexual assault charges and a sex offender designation. This results in sex offender treatment.
