You never thought you would be falsely accused of a crime – let alone a profoundly terrifying one, such as charges of child pornography or solicitation in Florida.
Yet here you are.
Perhaps investigators recently searched your home and commandeered your computer. Or maybe someone at work reported you for using your computer for illegal downloads, hacking, or some other maleficent behavior. Perhaps you were doing something not quite legal or socially acceptable – for instance, downloading pornographic images at work. But you were most certainly NOT trying to download images of underage people. Or maybe the charges are completely trumped up and not fair.
In either case, you recognize that you have serious challenges on your hands.
Sadly, most people do not understand pornography charges, and they “pre convict” as soon as they hear the allegations. Why? How come people aren't more compassionate? The reason has to do with complicated dynamics of human psychology. But if your boss, coworkers, friends and family members are less than sympathetic over the next few days and weeks, appreciate that this kind of unfair isolation happens to many defendants. This is tragic, because people falsely accused of crimes need all the help they can get. But it’s an unfortunate reality that you may have to manage.
Secondly, accept that your life over the next few days and weeks (perhaps even months) may be wildly tempestuous. Do what you can now to triage your schedule and set things up so that you will have the time, energy and discipline to focus on your defense. For instance, perhaps you were in the middle of a creative project with a business partner. That might need to be tabled. Perhaps you had planned to take a much needed vacation. That may need to be put on hold as well, as you deal with your charges. Remember that you have limited energy, willpower and time: siphon all of your resources to deal with the legal challenges.
Lastly – and most importantly – get in touch with an experienced Florida cybercrime defense attorney, so that you can construct an appropriate, sensible defense to clear your name. Do this as soon as possible, so that you can avoid making mistakes (or omissions) that can make your situation more complex, legally speaking, and stressful, psychologically speaking.
