Possession of Child Pornography in Oregon

Portland Child Pornography Possession Defense Attorneys

To say that federal child pornography possession cases are sensitive is an understatement. Even though the law says that a person is innocent until proven guilty, being charged with this crime will carry with it a stigma that is difficult to shake. If the charge results in a conviction, life will be permanently changed. People accused of these crimes deserve a criminal defense attorney with the experience to fight.

At Kohlmetz, Steen & Hanrahan, P.C., our attorneys have decades of experience. Our experience means we know the importance of intervening in these cases as soon as possible. Immediately, we will begin by designing a tough and aggressive defense strategy to protect the rights of the accused.

Examining the Evidence

Federal charges of possession of child pornography typically come after files are found on the accused's computer. These files can number into the hundreds, even thousands. The authorities routinely monitor various peer-to-peer file sharing networks. From this monitoring they identify computers adn persons likely to have downloaded child pornography. The prosecution will use the mere presence of these files on a person's computer as evidence, but there are other questions that need to be asked, the most important being, how did the files get there? Was the computer shared with other users or previously owned?

At our law firm, our lawyers are focused on criminal defense. Our knowledge of the law runs deep. However, we have the experience to know that legal knowledge alone may not be enough to win these cases. We may need to bring in tech experts to independently evaluate the computer and the evidence involved. We need to make certain we have all of the facts at our disposal. Then we can put our knowledge to work fighting for a positive outcome.
