Arizona is one of the strictest states in the nation in regards to those charged with sexual crimes involving children. Any involvement with child pornography can lead to both state and federal charges. In addition to mandatory incarceration of ten years per image, one runs the risk of being labeled as a sex offender for the rest of his or her life. It goes without saying that this can be devastating to one’s future. If you are facing such charges then you need legal assistance. Bretton Barber is a Phoenix based criminal defense lawyer giving such cases the level of attention they require. Contact us today to schedule an initial consultation.
Arizona attorney defending Maricopa County residents accused of sexually exploiting children
Child pornography charges may be filed in both state and federal court. Such charges can “stack” very quickly; if, for example, you are being charged with possessing images of sexualized children on a computer device then each image is often charged as an individual count. As a result, Defendants often face a lengthy list of criminal charges and the risk of substantial prison time. They also are confronted by the possibility of having to carry the stigma of being a “sex offender” for the rest of their lives. One facing these types of charges is running the risk of having their life irreparably damaged. If you are in such a situation then consult with counsel immediately.
Bretton Barber assists Arizona residents facing such charges. This is true whether one is in State Court or if they are facing Federal criminal charges. Once retained Bretton will immediately obtain all police reports and evidence from the prosecution. Cases involving child pornography typically hinge on search and seizure issues; if the police acquired incriminating evidence in violation of one’s Fourth Amendment rights then it is possible to have the evidence excluded from Court. Our office will examine how law enforcement acquired photos, videos, computer records and images, as well as any other materials for which one is charged. We will also examine the possibility of whether the items at issue, in fact, belonged to someone else. We understand the gravity of your situation and will give it the attention it deserves. Contact our lawyer today. In addition to Phoenix we represent defendants in other Maricopa County cities such as Mesa, Glendale, Scottsdale, Chandler, and Gilbert. We also assist Pima County residents in Tucson.
