Child Pornography Criminal Defense Lawyers: Violations of California Penal Code Section 311.11 and U.S. Code Title 18
Has the government just contacted you or served a search warrant at your home or office as part of a Child Pornography investigation? Have you just been arrested for Possession of Child Pornography or the Attempted Possession of Child Pornography? Any sex offense accusation, even without corroborating evidence, is devastating to the accused. Family, friends, and co-workers may think the worst, even though the government case is weak or there is defense evidence showing that other adults or minors may have accessed the computer with Child Pornography downloads.
Kestenbaum Eisner & Gorin, LLP, is a top-rated criminal defense law firm. Our criminal defense attorneys have been helping clients throughout all San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita, and Los Angeles state and federal courtrooms obtaining superior results for over 50 years. Our firm specializes in the defense of Child Pornography cases. We specialize in aggressively defending sex crime accusations in the following courthouses: Van Nuys, San Fernando, Santa Clarita, Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, Sylmar Juvenile Pasadena Juvenile and throughout Los Angeles County. Many child pornography cases are prosecuted in Los Angeles Federal Court, the Central District of California, where we also have extensive litigation and courtroom defense experience.
Our criminal defense attorneys will tirelessly fight your Child Pornography charges in state and federal court. We will even work to intervene in your matter before it gets to court. Our Pre-Filing Intervention goal is to force the charges to be dropped or reduced, and/or to avoid any custody time before court. Recently, in a high-profile case, our law firm defended a licensed professional who was able to avoid all jail time, because of our aggressive pre-filing work on the case for an entire year.
Definition of Child Pornography, Penal Code Section 311.11 and United States Code Title18
Most pornography is lawful under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. However, Child Pornography is unlawful when it depicts actual or simulated sexual conduct by an individual under the age of 18, or it depicts the lascivious exhibition of the pubic area of such an individual. Courts have held that such material may be unlawful even if it is not legally “obscene” and does not involve actual nudity. Penal Code Section 311.11 applies to California Superior Court prosecutions, while the United States Code Title 18 is used for federal court cases in Los Angeles.
The government will typically seek substantial jail or prison time in such cases, and require sex crime registration for life. The stakes are high and the outcome will have a tremendous impact on your future. That is why an aggressive defense is necessary, both in state and federal court, to Child Pornography accusations.
For our client’s convenience, our main office is located across the street from the Van Nuys Courthouse and Jail. Our other San Fernando Valley law offices are located in Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, and Santa Clarita.
