Unfortunately, people sometimes fall into the trap created by the widespread availability of illegal pornography on the Internet. Simply viewing sexual material that involves minors is a felony in New York, and acts such as giving alcohol to a child and photographing or filming a sex act may bring long prison terms and an array of other life-altering consequences.
At the Law Offices of Joseph J. Tock, we are in the business of helping our clients. We know that false and exaggerated allegations sometimes lead to sex charges, and that not all arrests are justified. We also focus on helping people get the psychiatric treatment and rehabilitation they need to move on after serious mistakes.
Focused, Resourceful Defense For People Charged With Internet Sex Crimes
Whether you were arrested by state police or FBI agents, we will determine whether probable cause for a search existed and consider all other circumstances relevant to your case. We are prepared to represent you on any charge of alleged possession, creation or distribution of child pornography, such as those formally called:
- Use of a child in a sexual performance
- Possessing or promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child
- Facilitating a sexual performance by a child with alcohol or a controlled substance
Our firm's experience extends to defense against other sexual offenses and other crimes allegedly committed online, such as fraud and identity theft.
Whatever the exact charges and circumstances, no one should underestimate the seriousness of an Internet-based sex charge — including the potentially lifelong impact of required registration under New York's Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA).
Your attorney should have in-depth knowledge of constitutional law, a stellar reputation in the courts in your area, and ready access to computer experts who may prove invaluable in your case. Our firm has these attributes and resources, including former law enforcement agents who will analyze the hard drive of the computer in question.
