As soon you are aware of an investigation by law enforcement, contact a Houston sex crime attorney who can advise you of your rights and begin investigating the case on your behalf.

Possible Defenses to a Houston Child Porn Crime

His experience investigating and prosecuting child porn cases gives him a unique perspective that he puts to use on behalf of the people he now defends.

Houston criminal defense attorney James Alston knows that most child porn cases involve computers so defense investigations focus attention on issues such as:

  • Other people having access to the accused person’s computer
  • Email or spam containing attachments with child porn that were not solicited by defendant
  • Shared networks resulting in offending material inadvertently ending up on the computer

Successfully challenging the prosecution’s evidence can result in dismissal or reduction of the charges.
