Middlesex County Child Pornography Attorney helps client avoid prison for child pornography distribution


Middlesex County


This was one of the first child pornography distribution cases via cell phone. The procedural history of the case is rather interesting. The client first had a child pornography possession case. After that case was resolved, he picked up a child pornography distribution case. This firm did not represent the client for either of these first two cases. The client entered into a guilty plea for the distribution charge and was sent to prison for three years. However, the police found his cell phone weeks before he was to be sentenced to prison. They waited for him to get out of prison, years later, to arrest him for this case. We worked out a deal with the State for a plea to child pornography possession with the distribution charge being dismissed. This alone was a huge victory and most may think it would be crazy to ask for no prison time since this was the client’s third case. Of course, we stop at nothing. We filed a hard hitting sentencing brief and to the shock and amazement of the State, we got the Court to give him probation! Not a day in jail.
