Florida Child Pornography Lawyer :: Lawyer Arrested on Federal Child Porn Charges

A Manchester, New Hampshire attorney associated with an anti-gay Christian defense group was recently arrested for allegedly transporting a teen to Canada to participate in sexual activity while being filmed.

FBI agents arrested the woman last month on charges of transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, possession of child pornography and five counts of sexual exploitation of children.

Federal prosecutors claim the woman took the teen girl to Canada on May 25.

Police have been investigating the woman since Sept. 29 after receiving a tip that she had child porn on her computer.

She is currently being held without bond because witnesses allege she has coerced other juveniles into engaging in sexual activity and drug use. Witnesses have allegedly testified to seeing the woman in possession of marijuana, ecstasy and cocaine. Prosecutors also believe the woman sent a text message to a friend saying she may flee to Cuba.

The woman was first arrested in October for possessing child pornography. Police claim there were videos and photos on the woman’s computer depicting a teen girl. The FBI was notified after police determined the porn was made out of state.

Any person accused of child pornography charges faces severe consequences if convicted, including being labeled a sexual offender for life. Being convicted of possessing just a few images on your computer can result in a lengthy prison sentence, even if you have no previous criminal record. Child porn cases involving numerous images or multiple people using file sharing networks are usually referred to federal prosecutors. If you are under investigation or have already been arrested for a federal child pornography crime, you must act fast and enlist the help of a sex crimes defense attorney who can fight for your rights and protect you from the ramifications of these serious charges.
