Pennsylvania man fights his child pornography case alone

A Pennsylvania man will be going to trial on child pornography charges. According to reports, the man downloaded approximately 3,000 images of child pornography on a computer in his home. The charges derived from an FBI investigation, which began in October 2012.

According to a criminal complaint, the suspect admitted to viewing the pornographic images; however, he claims that he never shared them with others. The suspect explains that he has been viewing such images for about a decade. He notes that his infatuation is connected to his molestation that occurred as a child, noting that the criminal matter will provide him with the opportunity to receive treatment for the incident.

In this particular case, the suspect is representing himself pro se (on his own) in court. So far, the defendant waived an initial hearing on one charge of child pornography possession, which was filed by the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office.

While this particular suspect is looking forward to receiving treatment from the whole matter, a criminal lawyer would best be suited for connecting the defendant with the appropriate plan. Unless the suspect has been thoroughly trained in the law, the chance of overlooking important legal elements or procedures in the case is high. To resolve his case in a way that fits his needs, he might look to a licensed defense attorney, who can ensure that his recovery needs are met with the support of the legal system - even if he is found guilty.
