California man accused of distributing child pornography

The federal government and the state of California have zero tolerance for sex crimes, particularly those related to children. So when Californians are accused of committing sex offenses, they are up against an aggressive force that has lots of resources at its disposal. Therefore, these individuals cannot afford to forego a proper criminal defense or remain ignorant of the law. Instead, those who are facing criminal allegations should be proactive in their defense, fighting tooth and nail to protect their well-being and their legal rights.

One California man may need to do this now after being taken into custody for allegedly distributing child pornography. According to authorities, the 25-year-old man accessed child pornography while at work and allegedly distributed it to others via the internet. The man's employer reported him the matter to the accused's parole officer. Furthermore, authorities claim to have conducted a search of the accused's email and discovered exchanges of child pornography and solicitation of sexual encounters via Craigslist.

If convicted, the man could face serious penalties. In fact, the federal criminal charge he faces carries a prison sentence of between 15 and 40 years. Additionally, he could face even more damage to his likely already tarnished reputation, and if he serves a prison sentence, life afterwards may not be easy. Difficulty finding a job and adequate housing are real possibilities.

The individual in this instance, as well as other Californians who may be facing similar allegations, should stand strong in their defense. To do so, they may need the assistance of an experienced, diligent, and aggressive lawyer who may know best how to navigate the charges. Hopefully then the accused will be able to rest assured that his or her case is in competent hands.
