If you are facing charges involving the possession or distribution of child pornography, you are likely feeling like the whole world is against you.
If you are married, your spouse may question your relationship and maybe even consider a divorce. You could lose your job. Your friends and loved ones may distance themselves from you even before your case is resolved. On top of the anxiety, fear and embarrassment you may be feeling, you can also feel very abandoned. But you should remember that you don't have to go through the difficult process of defending yourself alone.
People who work with an attorney to defend against charges like child pornography can find that their lawyer is more than just a person who understands the laws, though that is a crucial role as well.
An attorney can also be:
- A protector: When you need to speak with prosecutors and law enforcement agents, who can be very aggressive and intimidating, you won't be as vulnerable to certain tactics that attempt to hurt your case if you have your attorney present during these interactions.
- An educator: You may not know what your rights are when you are in this situation, but an attorney can help you understand the laws that are in place and what you may be able to expect as the case proceeds.
- An ally: Even if few or none of your friends or family seem to be in your corner when you are facing these charges, your attorney can be there through every step of the process.
The unfortunate reality that many people face in light of child pornography charges is that friends and family members seem to disappear or turn against them. However, you must remember that you have the right to have an attorney by your side so that you do not have to face such a devastating time on your own.
