Child Pornography cases
Being accused of such a case is devastating, no matter who you are. The charge alone can ruin a person's life and damage their reputation. Our society today has pressured the Courts to treat these cases with the strictest of sanctions. Sanction being incredibly long incarceration sentences in most cases.
There are three main types of cases, 1) those child porn cases where someone has sabotaged the Defendant and planted inappropriate and illegal images and/or data on their computer and/or phone for purposes of revenge and 2) persons who made a terrible mistake and chose to explore or download material that is highly illegal to possess and was ultimately in a sting by Federal Agents and local police, 3) cases where someone else had joint control over the computer, files, or property where the illegal material was found.
In any case, the government of the United States will most likely be seeking heavy jail sentences depending on how much content was found and to a lesser degree the Defendant's prior criminal history (clean or not). The Sentencing Guidelines that the Court will use in determining a possible sentence range, if guilty, for these types of case are heavy, to say the least.

In Federal Court, Drug Trafficking is also very serious depending on the substance being dealt and the amount possessed or sold. Defendant's are shocked to hear minimum mandatory sentences of 10-20 years with a million dollars per count for even very small amounts. These days, meth, heroin, and Oxycodone are some of the drugs treated with very heavy sanctions. In many cases, a homicide charge in State court can be treated equal to or lesser than a Federal Drug Trafficking case – in terms of mandatory minimums and maximums. If you have found yourself being charged with Federal Drug Trafficking, please call Attorney Shon Douctre as soon as possible to arrange representation.
Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and/or possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in furtherance of a drug crime is common in Federal Court. This type of charge usually stems from a Drug Trafficking case when the Defendant's person or property was searched and it is found that he/she has a prior Felony conviction. This charge can add significant time to any person's sentence. If you or a loved one has a charge like this, please call Attorney Douctre for a free consultation to see what can be done.
