Due to the growth of peer-to-peer file sharing technology, pornography is more accessible than ever. But that also means more spam, more phishing, and more viruses looking to latch on to unsuspecting internet users. An adult may be visiting a legal pornographic website or may mistakenly click on a wrong hyperlink. A malicious virus that has made its way into your computer without your knowledge can begin storing images or videos of child pornography. It can be an automated software, a sick prank, or a vengeful act. But whichever it is, when the police knock on your door, it’s the beginning of a hellish journey.
Possessing, downloading, or transmitting child pornography on a computer is a serious crime. Penalties include long jail terms and sex offender registration, which can ruin your life forever. If you are currently under investigation for possession of internet child pornography or have already been arrested and charged, you need a strong advocate on your side.
