Aggressive Defense When The Stakes Are High

Any sort of sexual offense involving children can result in severe consequences. When U.S. service members face such accusations, contacting a lawyer is critical to navigate the complex process ahead.

Attorney Phillip Stackhouse has nearly 20 years of experience in assisting service members and civilian contractors who face sex crime allegations. Representing those based in California, across the country and around the world, he provides knowledgeable, strategic counsel throughout challenging cases.

Representation For Various Offenses Involving Minors

When you face allegations of child molestation or pornography, it is crucial to immediately involve an attorney. Consequences of such offenses can be grave, including:

  • Involuntary discharge from service
  • Loss of your military career
  • Conviction for a felony offense
  • Sex offender registration
  • Possible jail time, fines and other steep penalties

Attorney Stackhouse defends against several pornography offenses, including the possession, distribution or manufacturing of child pornography. Of these three offenses, possession, or receipt, is the most common.

Computer viruses, pop-up ads and malware can all contribute to the unintentional possession of illegal pornography. Moreover, explicit videos or photos downloaded from popular file-sharing programs could include child pornography hidden within the files. Law enforcement officials can then scan known illegal keywords or file names to accuse the unknowing offender.

Providing A Thorough Defense Strategy

Suspicions of child molestation or pornography can quickly escalate, especially when computer evidence is involved. Once law enforcement officials suspect your offense, they will track your IP address, obtain a search warrant and seize your possessions, including your computer.

Attorney Stackhouse works with highly skilled computer forensic analysts. Together, they examine key evidence within your file history, including determining the download date of files, whether they were opened and more. Mr. Stackhouse provides aggressive representation throughout the duration of your case to protect your rights and guard against harsh penalties.
