Possessing child pornography is a serious crime that carries substantial penalties. Further, because child pornography crimes often involve the Internet or other channels of interstate commerce, suspects can be charged with both state and federal crimes. Maryland or Washington, D.C., residents who are accused of or charged with Internet sex crimes will need a strong criminal defense attorney to combat the severe consequences of a conviction.
Everyone in Washington, D.C., has heard numerous stories about priests, pastors and other religious figures that allegedly prey on their congregants. Accusations of sexual assault by a priest are so common that many people will assume that all allegations of sexual assault are true. Unfortunately, some cases arise after a false report is made, but even when a priest is able to prove his innocence, it doesn't mean his career hasn't already been ruined by the mere accusation of sexual abuse.
