Sometimes Juveniles Are The Alleged Offenders

Our clients include juveniles accused of offenses like “sexting” (exchanging texts including photos of private body parts) and “camming” (posting nude images of others on the Internet without their permission). Even if this type of activity was considered a game between friends, the federal government considers it child pornography if it meets certain criteria. Our lawyers can analyze your case and develop strong arguments in your defense.

Public Or Professional Integrity — And One’s Job — May Be At Risk
