Child Pornography Defense

Few allegations are as damning as child pornography charges. If you are accused of possessing or distributing sexual images of children, suddenly no one wants to know you and the prosecution will push for prison time. A conviction also means lifelong sex offender registration, even if you pose no public threat.

These are the times when a skilled criminal defense matters most. The Law Office of John Anthony Ward will challenge the grounds for your arrest and make every effort to spare you from a conviction or the harshest punishments.

Experienced Representation For Computer Sex Crimes

Under the law, possessing or viewing sexual images of children is a felony, whether or not the images were saved or shared. Each photo or video can be charged as a separate criminal count, resulting in a potential sentence of years in prison.

Criminal defense lawyer John Anthony Ward brings nearly three decades of experience to your case if you are charged with:

  • Possession of child pornography
  • Distribution of child pornography
  • Sexual exploitation or sexual assault of a child
  • "Sexting" illicit images of a teenager or to a teenager
  • Online solicitation teenagers for sex

We will explore all possible defenses, including hijacking or unauthorized use of your computer or Internet account by others, or Fourth Amendment violations in the search of your home or seizure of your hard drive. Mr. Ward will negotiate on your behalf to avoid an arrest or downgrade the charges, and he will advocate vigorously on your behalf to exclude evidence or fight for your freedom at trial.
