Wilmington Computer Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer

In the eyes of the law, viewing pornographic images of children directly contributes to their sexual exploitation. If you are accused of possessing or sharing such materials, prison time and sex offender status are a very real possibility. You cannot “wait and see” or talk your way out of this; you need an experienced Wilmington computer sex crimes defense lawyer immediately.

I am Michael Modica, a former prosecutor and longtime criminal defense lawyer. I draw on 30-plus years of experience in Delaware criminal law to defend those accused of sex crimes, including Internet pornography cases. Call my Wilmington law office today.

Downloading Sexual Images Of Children

It is a serious felony to possess pornographic photos or videos depicting minors or young children. The Delaware attorney general’s office aggressively prosecutes:

  • Downloading illegal images
  • Sharing or selling such images
  • Producing or distributing illegal pornography
  • Participating in sexual abuse of children
  • Soliciting minors over the Internet

The presumptive punishment is so severe that something must be done to blunt the knee-jerk reaction. Most clients accused of possessing child pornography have good jobs, stable lives and little if any criminal history. It is truly frightening and humiliating to have police enter your home, seize your computer and ask the most personal questions.

Defense For Computer Sex Crimes

I examine every facet of the investigation, from search warrants and subpoenas to the alleged criminal counts. Can they prove that you actually downloaded and viewed illegal images? Did you avoid or delete such images? I have access to computer experts who can conduct an independent forensic evaluation of the hard drive and your Internet activity.

I commonly commission an independent psychological evaluation for sex crimes involving a child. This can be very helpful in proving that you are not a sexual predator or high risk to re-offend, which can reduce the proposed sentence.

There Is Hope For A Better Outcome

Arrests for Internet pornography are not slam-dunk cases. I will assert your rights and leverage your defenses to minimize the consequences as much as possible. If you need aWilmington computer sex crimes defense lawyer, call 302-600-1262 or contact me online. I offer a free, confidential consultation without judgment.
