In the not too distant past this sex crime encompassed all sexually explicit material, involving adults and minors. As a young Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Mr. Bridgman remembers prosecution of adult filmmakers and actors for conduct that is now legal.
Today in California this sex crime is almost always confined to the possession, distribution or production of sexually explicit material involving minors. Prosecutions for "obscene" material featuring adults are extremely rare.
Police relentlessly investigate these cases and the sentences are severe. In fact, police agencies can force Internet service providers to turn over records of users. Forensic computer experts are also used to search computers for explicit material.
It is often possible to raise successful legal defense in these cases. In situations where the evidence is overwhelming, a good lawyer may be able to work out a plea bargain that will significantly reduce the consequences of this crime.

Although each sex crime is unique, every sex crime is serious. It is essential to engage a qualified sex crime attorney as soon as possible. Never speak to the police, on the phone or with anyone before consulting with an attorney. Do not make mistakes at the beginning of your case that will seriously hurt you later. There is too much at risk to do it alone.
When selecting an attorney you want someone you can depend on to be honest. Sex crime defense is a tough business limited to smart lawyers who have the courage to stand up to the public, prosecutors and judges. At the same time, you want an attorney who is realistic with you about your sex crime.
