If you need to fight against charges involving the production of child pornography, you must be sure that the legal representatives you retain have the experience, aggression and dedication needed to handle these complex and high stakes cases. At Okabe & Haushalter, we know that the lives and futures of our clients are at risk, and we stop at nothing when crafting strong defense strategies and fighting on their behalf. For those who stand accused of producing pornographic materials of minors under the age of 18, our relentless approach to cases and our unrivaled legal skills can prove indispensable to the outcome of your case.
Individuals can be prosecuted with the production of child pornography when they knowingly produce any stage play, live performance, film, videotape or other visual depiction of a minor under the age of 18. The most crucial element in these cases is often whether or not an offender knew, or should have reasonably known, that a person was under the age of 18. We fully explore this legal element during initial evaluations and investigations and work to unearth the legal intricacies that can allow your charges to be dropped or greatly reduced. When allegations involve additional sex crimes or enhancements, we ramp up our collective efforts in fighting for our clients and doing whatever is necessary to obtain favorable results.
The penalties of production convictions are life-changing. Exorbitant fines, lengthy prison terms, and mandatory sex offender registration can cripple the personal, professional and financial well-being of offenders. There is simply too much to lose. As such, our team of nationally renowned Chicago criminal defense attorneys is prepared to utilize our years of experience and sex crime defense specializations to produce the litigation plans needed to preserve your freedom and future. Having accomplished this many times in past cases and has received critical acclaim from a number of legal industry ranking organizations, you can be confident that your fate rests in capable hands with our firm.
