Child Pornography Cases are on the Rise in State and Federal Courts

In recent years, there have been huge increases in child pornography cases in both state and federal courts. The Law Firm of Frank E. Stanley, P.C., has successfully defended many people wrongfully accused of child pornography crimes, including Internet child pornography charges.

Internet Child Pornography: A Serious Crime

Internet child pornography is a particularly serious crime in the eyes of the federal courts. Attorney Frank Stanley has taken cases to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati in pursuit of clarification of the application of mandatory federal sentencing guidelines with regard to what is on a defendant's computer and how it got there. Attorney Stanley's clients are vigorously defended through pressure on the government to meet its obligation to prove the presence of aggravators involved in charges. Such aggravators may include the number of images and the types of images found on a defendant's computer.

Downloading Child Pornography is Grounds for Felony Penalties

Michigan courts have held that merely downloading child pornography is grounds for felony penalties. The Law Firm of Frank E. Stanley, P.C., works together with computer forensic experts to demonstrate that in some cases, a defendant is not guilty as charged as a result of morphing which distorts and combines images of children and adults, or as a result of manipulation of a defendant's computer by a third-party hacker using a Trojan horse, or other computer virus. Attorney Frank Stanley currently has a case pending before the Michigan Supreme Court to define the proper criminal offense for the downloading of child pornography.
