Aggressive Criminal Defense From a Former Prosecutor

While all cases involving sex crimes are impacted by harsh social stigmas and public opinion, cases involving minors are perhaps the most negatively viewed, vigorously prosecuted, and unrelentingly punished.

Defending Against Allegations

There are numerous factors that set the odds against individuals who stand accused of child pornography charges. Forceful opposition, strong public distaste, and an overwhelming social pressure to convict sex offenders affects the outcome of these cases, even when those accused are innocent.

Having worked on numerous criminal cases from both sides of the courtroom, Attorney Southard has accumulated keen insight into how investigations are conducted and prosecution is handled. As state or federal crimes, child pornography charges post grave penalties, including:

  • Lengthy mandatory terms of imprisonment
  • Fines and/or restitution
  • Sex offender registration

You have the right to representation and the right to challenge the government’s case against you. With a proven advocate in your corner, you maximize your chances of securing a positive outcome – whether that comes by reducing penalties or registration requirements, or by having charges dismissed. All cases are different, which is why it is essential to speak personally with Attorney Southard about the unique facts of your case and the defense strategies available to you.
