FAQ’s about NY Child Pornography

Demystifying Child Pornography Cases in New York

Let’s chat about something serious: the prosecution of child pornography cases in New York under both state and federal law. It’s aggressive, unyielding, and complex — exactly the kind of legal maze Todd Spodek and his team at the Spodek Law Group are trained to navigate. Here are a few burning questions we often encounter when it comes to these cases.

How Do The Big Bad Wolves Hunt?

So, who kick-starts child pornography investigations? Well, it could be the police or federal agents. It might start with an anonymous tip into the FBI hotline, tracking downloads from those sneaky peer-to-peer networks, or search warrants executed on hard drives, computers, and servers. Internet service providers might give officers a buzz or law enforcement agents could be posing as minors in online chatrooms and forums. Spooky, huh?

Contacting the Fuzz

Knock, knock. Who’s there? The cops, and they’re packing search warrants for your electronics. If they haven’t got one, they’ll ask you for consent to conduct a search. It’s kinda like asking if they can snoop through your personal stuff — not exactly houseguests of the year material. But here’s where Todd Spodek and his Spodek Law Group swoop in to help guide you through this momentous situation.

Any statements you make could end up being used against you. Think Miranda rights, the famous “anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law” scenario. So be careful, Sherlock, they’re trying to get you to spill the beans.

Will I Get Arrested After The Police Visit?

More likely than not, you won’t be getting silver bracelets on your wrists right away. Why? As we’ve established before, these cops usually take your devices away for a rigorous digital autopsy which could take weeks or even months just to see what they can dig up. Plus, they might hold off on laying down the Miranda rights if you’re not in custody. They’re tricky like that.

Can I Surrender Myself In Child Pornography Cases?

Believe it or not, yes. In both state and federal cases, self-surrender is an option — it’s like turning yourself in, but on your own terms. However, if you have any prior arrests or similar convictions, you might be fresh out of luck. That’s why it’s so important to reach out to Todd Spodek and the Spodek Law Group as early as possible.

Can I Get Bail On Child Pornography Cases?

Again, the answer is affirmative, but it could be hard to secure if you have previous charges. And if you’re charged with production? It’s always a tough sell. But worry not, the Spodek Law Group are seasoned veterans when it comes to arguing for your bail in court. They understand the nuances of the law and will strive to put the best defense on your behalf.

Is It Possible To Defend Child Pornography Charges?

Each case is a complex tapestry and requires a keen eye for unraveling the threads. At the heart of it, Todd Spodek and his Spodek Law Group are capable of developing the best possible defense strategy. So sit back, relax, and let them take the wheel for a change.

How Are Plea Bargains Negotiated On Child Pornography Cases?

It’s a tricky business, no doubt. Different charges carry different minimums and maximums. And if you’re dealing with federal cases in New York, there are specific procedures for appealing the plea offers. But don’t fret, the Spodek Law Group has got your back.

If you’re entangled in a child pornography case, it’s essential to have strong legal guidance — Todd Spodek and the team at Spodek Law Group are your best allies. They understand the gravity of the situation and are committed to serving your best interests.

Defending Your Case, One Step at a Time

When it comes to constructing your defense, Spodek Law Group has some tricks up its sleeve. Maybe there were issues with the search warrant. Did the judge get all the info about how the network was set up, or what was happening with the computers? Did the material really belong to you, or was it deleted? They could also explore whether you knowingly possessed the materials – a computer expert might reveal that the download was accidental, or that you couldn’t access the file.

And When It Comes to Plea Deals…

Plea negotiations, can be critical in these cases. You see, child pornography charges can range from possession to distribution, and each custody a different weight. Negotiating a plea without a mandatory minimum can be a game-changer, and this is where the legal prowess of Todd Spodek and his team truly shines.

An Appeal for Justice

In this legal labyrinth, you don’t have to feel alone. If you’re unhappy with the plea offer extended to you, know that in both the Southern and the Eastern District of New York, you can appeal it. And that’s where Spodek Law Group’s expertise becomes invaluable.

State vs. Federal Court?

In the context of child pornography cases, there’s a difference between New York’s state court and federal court procedures. State court plea offers are less rigid, but make no mistake, they often come with jail time. The only hope to avoid jail is a conditional plea — that’s downgrading to a misdemeanor and agreeing to counseling or completing a program.

Remember, Help is Just A Call Away

Nose-diving into these heavy charges can feel like you’re sinking, and quickly. But you’re not alone. Todd Spodek and the Spodek Law Group are ready to lend an experienced hand and pull you back up. They understand the weight of these charges and are deeply committed to securing the best outcome for you. So reach out for a confidential consultation. Get the legal support you need, when you need it the most.
