Maryland man accused of child pornography

On behalf of Jack B. Rubin, PA posted in Internet Crimes on Monday, August 27, 2012.

A man is facing over 150 criminal charges as a result of an investigation by police officials. According to reports, the Maryland man accused of child pornography is alleged to have gone to a public event and taken pictures of young girls. The man is also alleged to have engaged in an explicit conversation with one girl.

Police took the man into custody at the event and seized his cell phone. A search of the cell phone is alleged to have revealed that the man had a large number of pictures of children engaged in sexual acts. Police also stated that some of the images appeared to have been digitally altered.

Police subsequently executed a search warrant at the man’s home and took several computers and electronic devices. Police stated that, depending on what these devices reveal, more criminal charges may be forthcoming. The man, identified as being 34 years old, made his first appearance on the charges earlier in August and was released due to him posting $10,000 bond.

An individual being accused of child pornography is becoming a regular occurrence across Maryland and the country. These charges bear serious consequences for those who are ultimately convicted, which could include a substantial sentence of incarceration. Individuals who are facing such charges may benefit from seeking advice as to what legal options they have to contest the charges. By coming up with a defense strategy that best fits the circumstances of the case, a defendant can ensure that their rights are protected and that they are given every possible opportunity to either challenge the charges at trial, or to work to achieve a favorable negotiated plea agreement.
