Pornography and Computer Crimes

Pittsburgh Computer Crimes Lawyer Criminal Defense Services for Computer Crimes

The government pays sharp attention to crimes committed using computers. This is especially true of sex-related computer crimes, such as possession or distribution of Internet child pornography and solicitation or enticement of a minor in an Internet chat room.

A conviction for any of these types of computer crimes can carry serious penalties — including a prison sentence and public registration as a sex offender. Many of these charges carry a 10-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence.

Early intervention by experienced criminal defense lawyers dedicated to protecting your rights and mitigating the damage can make all the difference in computer crimes and Internet pornography cases.

The downtown Pittsburgh law firm of Farrell Weaver & Okun, Attorneys at Law, has significant experience defending individuals accused of a wide range of computer-related crimes — including possession of child pornography and coercion or luring cases.

Our attorneys have decades of criminal law practice behind them. We are not a general practice law firm. Rather, we are a law firm focused almost exclusively on providing high-quality criminal defense legal services to people throughout Western Pennsylvania.

When everyone is against you: As with all cases we defend, our goal is to mitigate the negative consequences of a computer crimes arrest. In a criminal justice system where almost everyone is against you, our job as your attorneys is to be the team of professionals you can count on to be on your side.

In computer crimes cases, it is absolutely critical to get a defense lawyer on your side as early as possible. As soon as you learn you are under investigation, as soon as the police seize your computer, as soon as possible after your arrest — contact Farrell Weaver & Okun.

We will intervene on your behalf with law enforcement and the prosecuting attorneys. Depending on the specific circumstances of your case, there may be other alternatives to mitigate the possible sentences. No matter the specifics of your situation, we will carefully guard your civil rights with regard to search and seizure and admission of improperly obtained evidence — every step of the way.
