Sex offenses against children are a major red flag for the public


It seems like it is becoming more common for Americans of all different backgrounds to have a negative encounter with law enforcement at some point in their lives. That doesn't always mean that an arrest occurs, but most people probably know several people who have been arrested. An arrest for driving while intoxicated is one thing, but there are other types of criminal allegations that can turn everyone in a person's life against them, let alone the public and the media. Sex offenses against children are one area of criminal charges that any New Jersey criminal defense attorney would probably tell our readers fits within that category.

And, according to a recent report, one New Jersey man has recently found himself in this unenviable position. The report indicates that the 26-year-old man was arrested recently and will now face criminal charges associated with his alleged possession of child pornography. Law enforcement officials claim that this man had the digital images stored on an external hard drive. The Burlington County Prosecutor's Office High Tech Crimes Unit was one of several government agencies involved in the investigation in this case. This special unit is part of a statewide effort coordinated by the state police.

There is a significant social stigma involved when someone faces these types of charges. However, this is most likely not the suspect's most pressing problem at the moment. After the arrest he is being held on $25,000 bond while his case is pending.

Although this New Jersey man's case is definitely serious, it should be noted that an effective criminal defense strategy is often formulated in the early stages of a case, no matter what the charge. While someone who has just been arrested may only be thinking of paying bail to get released from custody, the future stages of the criminal justice process should be taken into account from the first point of contact with law enforcement.
