Our principal, Vinoo Varghese, has quickly built a reputation as a distinguished New York City criminal defense attorney, having achieved two consecutive selections to Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠.
Possible Defenses To Child Pornography Charges
The public, prosecutor, jury and judge may all be skeptical that there could be a defense to child pornography charges, but we are not. We carefully study case precedents and think creatively to find a defense that works for you. The penalties upon conviction for these crimes may be years in prison, thousands of dollars in fines and lifetime registration to sexual offender lists; our primary goal is reducing your charges or having your charges dismissed through our creative and effective litigation.
Three potential defenses we will want to discuss with you are the following:
- Mistaken identity: child pornography cases often originate from digital sources, such as videos and pictures posted online. In the digital, cyber, and internet age that we live in, you may not be the only one accessing your computer and devices. There is also the possibility that someone else planted any incriminating evidence from a distant source. The prosecution must show with certainty that you unknowingly possessed or encouraged receiving child pornography;
- Unknown age: pornographic images, videos and distributions rarely advertise the age of the people depicted within. If you had reason to believe all parties involved in the sexually driven scenes or actions were of legal age, you may be protected from the prosecution; and
- Artistic value: something is explicitly pornographic if it is meant to cause sexual arousal or encourage sexual acts. In contrast, images, videos, and other works with inherent artistic value should not be considered child pornography and, therefore, may not constitute harsh charges.
