How do we defend my Class D felony case?

Sometimes the way we defend a Class D felony is different from how we defend other crimes.  For example, a Class A misdemeanor is certainly different than defending a serious felony case.

Firstly, child enticement cases frequently involve statements from alleged-victims.  Those victims are children.  The government must show the defendant cause the child to go into a secluded vehicle, building, room, or location.  Unless there is a third party witness, the child’s credibility is certainly an issue.  There are numerous ways to attack a victim’s credibility, including things like a Shiffra Green motion.

Secondly, possession of child pornography cases frequently involves subpoenas and search warrants.  Challenging those means of obtaining information could result in a dismissal of the charges against the defendant. The affidavit in support of a search warrant must show that there is probable cause evidence of a crime will be found in the location.  Without that probable cause, the cops can’t search.  And if they can’t search, they certainly can’t find the illegal materials.

Finally, you always maintain a right to a jury trial.  It does not matter what you’re charged with.  If you’re innocent of the allegations lodged against you, certainly pursuing to said jury trial may be the route to defending your case.
