Potential defenses for people charged with possession of child pornography in Tennessee

The ultimate goal of any criminal defense attorney is to persuade the jury that there is reasonable doubt as to whether or not the defendant is guilty as charged. There are some defensive case theories that are more regularly successful than others in child pornography possession cases. Our Clarksville possession of child pornography defense attorney goes through the evidentiary record thoroughly to find any facts that may help create a reasonable doubt in your favor. The most common defenses in Tennessee child pornography possession cases include:

  • The people in the images are not minors at the time the image was captured
  • Someone else was in possession of your computer or phone at the time that the child pornography was obtained
  • The evidence was illegally obtained by violating your constitutional rights
  • Getting in trouble for digital child pornography files

The federal government has particularly extensive resources dedicated towards capturing anyone involved in distribution or possession of child pornography. The digital age has made this particularly easy for government officials. Deleting a file from your hard drive does not actually delete it from your computer irretrievably - although you cannot see the file does not mean that investigators will be unable to find it. The government has highly skilled forensic computer experts that are able to retrieve deleted files of child pornography. You need to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately if you are under investigation for digitally possessing pornography in Clarksville. Saying the wrong thing without forethought can turn a misunderstanding into a lifelong nightmare. Our goal is to resolve your case before it escalates into formal charges and tenaciously defend your freedoms if you are formally charged with possession of child pornography in Tennessee.
