Under Investigation Or Charged Due To Your Internet Downloads?

If you are facing charges related to your download history, you are not alone. Many an Internet user has unwittingly downloaded something without realizing what it was. Mysterious email attachments may turn out to contain damaging computer viruses, slanderous messages, bomb threats, financial scams or pornographic images.

Once a file has been downloaded onto a hard drive, deleting it does not erase the possibility that a computer forensic specialist could retrieve it via specialized techniques during a criminal investigation.

If you are under investigation or have been charged with downloading child pornography, it is in your best interest to speak to an attorney immediately. Call 813-440-2347 for a free consultation with O’Brien Hatfield, P.A..

What If You Did Download It?

All it takes is one accidental child porn download to leave you facing criminal charges in Florida. If you know you have downloaded child pornography — intentionally or mistakenly — we strongly encourage you to talk to us about how to best limit potential criminal liability. Even if you deleted it right away, or you were sent unsolicited pornography via peer-to-peer file sharing, you still need an attorney looking out for your rights.

What If Someone Finds Illegal Material?

If someone such as a Geek Squad technician claims to have discovered illegal images on your computer, and you did not know those images were there, you need our help as soon as possible for the same reason. Computer technicians are required to report such findings to the police, which can lead the police to invite you to the station to “answer a few questions.” If that is the case, do not speak to them before you discuss your situation with an attorney.
