Viewing, downloading or sexually explicit images or kiddie porn can get you arrested and put you in State Prison or Federal Prison for many years. Many people do not understand how computers store information, particularly when it comes to sexually explicit images of minors.
If you accidentally download child pornography, what do you do? Hitting the delete button will not remove it from your computer. It simply removes the history or directory to the image. The highly illegal image is moved to the “unallocated space” section of your hard drive where it can later be recovered by law enforcement forensic experts. There are a few golden rules. First, never take your computer to law enforcement. They will probably arrest you for possession of child pornography. Never attempt to send the image somewhere else. It does not get it off your computer and you may get charged with transmission of child pornography. Never take it to a computer shop like Bests or some local computer expert. They will report you to the FBI or the police.
One possibility is to re-format your hard drive or re-write over all the unallocated space. There are commercial software programs that can accomplish this.
The FBI and the sheriffs department regularly monitor activity in P2P file sharing services. If you visit sites like Limewire or Frostwire and accidentally download kiddie porn you for sure don’t want to get charged with possession or transmission of child pornography.
Not all criminal defense attorneys understand computers and the internet. As a sex crime defense lawyer I have questioned and cross-examined law enforcement forensics experts. You may be able to show that it was an accident or unintentional act. Do not become a registered sex offender for life.

Child Pornography the 2015 sex sting

A child pornography arrest can destroy your life. There is however a world of difference between arrest for child pornography and convicted of child pornography. Hiring an experienced sex crime lawyer, a criminal lawyer that understands computers and the internet, may make the difference between winning and losing.
It is possible to view or download kiddie porn accidentally, often from a pop-up. Even more common is to accidentally acquire sexually explicit images of children as a result of peer-to-peer file sharing through the use of P2P software. Gnutella was the first decentralized network. Bearshare, Limewire and Frostwire are frontrunners in this file sharing known as “ultra peers”.
The FBI and sheriffs detectives regularly visit and monitor activity in these networks. If you receive child pornography, it can be traced to your IP address and a search warrant can be issued and served to you.
When you hit “delete”, it does not delete an illegal child porn image. You may delete it from your search history or your directory but it still exists on your computer in “unallocated space” and can be recovered by law enforcement. You may find yourself arrested and facing a long prison sentence.
As a Sarasota child pornography lawyer, I have questioned forensic experts and detectives. Not all criminal lawyers understand how to defend cyber sex crimes. If you have been arrested for child pornography in Sarasota or Bradenton or have charges from Polk, Pinellas, Pasco, Hillsborough, Orange or Seminole County, call me Peter D Aiken for a free consultation  at 941 366 3506 or visit my websites at:

Hot Spot on the Hot Seat in 2015
As Internet child pornography arrests increase in 2015, the danger of being falsely accused of child pornography increases. Did you know that your Internet Service provider, or even your cable TV provider can put you at risk? Some Internet providers like Comcast can make the modem in your house a public “hot spot” that enables neighbors and people on the street to access child porn and make it appear that the child porn site is being accessed from your address.
When law enforcement receives information that a child pornography image with a known hash value has been transmitted to or from a particular IP address, they can obtain a search warrant which results in the search of your home and possibly an arrest. This puts innocent citizens at risk of being falsely accused or possession of illegal images. There is a major push towards more and more child pornography arrests in 2015. Here in Sarasota, law enforcement has made it a high priority and the State Attorney’s office has promised vigorous prosecution for crimes related to child pornography.
Are they going to create cases in Florida and entrap people with child porn sex stings? My prediction is that the resources that were doing the horrible Internet sex stings will now be directed to child pornography sex stings. My prediction is that undercover officers on adult sites will now be engaging in chat and texting with the goal being getting someone to send videos or images of underage kids engaged in sexual conduct. As a sex sting lawyer and child pornography defense lawyer, I have been following the trend now for some months.
Deleting a video or an image does not remove it from your computer. Some people think simply hitting the delete button will remove something that has accidentally been downloaded. This simply is not true. Even the programs that claim they can remove or erase content are not really effective. Reformatting the hard drive is the only solution. If something accidentally or unintentionally ends up on your computer take steps immediately to correct the situation. Never, no never send or receive images of children engaged in sex. Curiosity killed the cat and curiosity can land you in State or Federal prison. Never allow anyone with a peer to peer sharing program to access your computer. The best way to avoid an arrest is to not commit the crime. Do not let curiosity get the best of you. As a criminal defense attorney and Child pornography sting lawyer, I am very familiar with ‘what happens next’ when accused of possession or transmitting child porn images. If you or a loved one is under investigation in Sarasota, Manatee, Pinellas, Hillsborough, Osceola, Orange, Polk, Palm Beach, Pasco, Marion or Lee counties with possession of Child Pornography or have been arrested for transmission of child pornography or If you have any questions, feel free to call, Attorney Peter D Aiken, for a free consultation at 941 366 3506
