Lack of Evidence of Contact Can Lessen Sex Crime Sentencing

Lack of Evidence of Contact Can Lessen Sex Crime Sentencing

Sex crime sentences based on child pornography material can be lessened when there is a lack of evidence of contact with the child. In fact, sex crime sentencing can be lessened because accessing or distributing child pornography is considered a less severe offense than participating in the making of the material.

Defense Options For Sex Crime Charges

It is possible for defense lawyer Jonathan Rose to prove that the accused deserves a reduced sentence when there is a lack of evidence of contact. Here are some possible defense options:

  • Attack the evidence
    • Rose starts by analyzing the evidence the prosecutor intends to use in court. Then, Orlando defense lawyer Jonathan Rose aggressively attacks the evidence on a legal basis to exclude or discredit it in the eyes of the law.
    • In some cases, Mr. Rose weakens the prosecutor’s evidence to such extent that the case must be dismissed.
  • Evidence is not admissible
    • Evidence is not admissible in court if the law enforcement agents obtained the evidence via an illegal search and seizure.
    • Defense lawyer Jonathan Rose knows how to effectively attack the evidence by preventing it from being admitted.
    • Evidence can be excluded or discredited for reasons such as:
      • Authentication problems.
      • Tampering with evidence.
      • Miranda violations.
      • Witness credibility problems.
      • Chain of custody problems.
      • Lack of relevancy.
      • Spoilation of evidence.
      • Unlawful search and seizure.
      • More prejudicial than probative.
  • Lack of contact
    • Defense lawyer Jonathan Rose then provides evidence that his client is not a person who victimizes children. Mr. Rose furthers his argument by proving there was a lack of contact between his client and the children.
    • By proving there was a lack of contact, Mr. Rose can negotiate to obtain a lesser sex crime sentence for his clients.
