If the arrest of Subway spokesman Jared Fogle proved anything, it’s that anyone can be charged with child molestation and possession of child pornography. This is further emphasized by the recent arrest of officer Michael Harding, who was charged with possessing and distributing child pornography. Harding wasn’t just any cop either -he was previously named Officer of the Year in his department. These cases remind us that no matter what a person’s reputation, they can still be charged with child pornography crimes. If you are accused of a similar charge, please call (760) 643-4050 or (858) 486-3024 to speak with Vista child pornography defense lawyer Peter M. Liss.
Fighting child pornography possession and distribution charges has always been a difficult task, but as more and more of these crimes are limited to exclusively digital files, the prosecution and defense of these accusations have become increasingly difficult.

Sex crimes, particularly those involving children, are some of the most difficult crimes to defend against as the mere accusation can ruin a person’s reputation. Additionally, aside from jail or prison time, anyone convicted of possession of child pornography is required to register for life as a sex offender.
