Toronto Lawyers for Child Pornography Charges

Charges relating to child pornography and internet luring are amongst the most devastating a person can face.

The stigma of even being investigated for such an offence is often enough to result in earth shattering consequences to a person’s personal and professional life. Charges are broken down into categories of accessing child pornography, possession of child pornography, distribution or publishing of child pornography and making child pornography. These charges are often related to the offence of internet luring where someone is accused of contacting a minor online for the purposes of committing an offence of sexual assault or sexual interference.

Recent amendments to the Criminal Code have introduced mandatory minimum sentences of 90 days or more for offences in these categories. If you are facing charges of this nature it is essential that you hire a lawyer dedicated to confidentially and professionally navigating the complexities of such a case. At Bytensky  Shikhman, our criminal lawyers have extensive experience with this very difficult area of the law. We are adept at defending these cases in every available way which can include attacks on the legality of search warrants. Our office has access to leading computer and technology experts who are experienced in analyzing digital data to explain the innocent existence of child pornography on discs, hard drives or in browser cookies.

Where a client admits to being involved in a child pornography or internet luring offence, we have access to the best and most experienced psychologists, psychiatrists and counselors who assist our clients in diagnosing and treating pedophilea. Often, this expertise and our attention to every detail is the difference between a crippling sentence and a genuine opportunity for rehabilitation.

    Edward Prutschi is an excellent criminal lawyer. He took a complex financial crime case where I was facing a long term jail sentence and was able to present a case where the judge acquitted me on all charges. I dealt with two other lawyers who were on record for my file before Edward came on board. With Edward, I found he was always responsive and always willing to listen. He presented a complex case over 5 weeks and was quick on his feet for every twist and turn during the trial. He would be up late the night before witness examination exchanging emails due to new email evidence I was sending him. He would go out of his way to visit potential expert witnesses. He presented a united and coherent defense to the Judge which in the end resulted in my acquittal and the co-accused. With his leading media expertise and being a guest columnist in the Toronto Sun, he wrote an article in defense of my acquittal for those who were questioning the Judge’s decision.

    I have known Ed Prutschi since we were in law school together. When I am asked for a great criminal lawyer, I think of Ed because he is well-known for his advocacy and effectiveness in representing his clients’ interests. Ed demonstrates his vast knowledge through his writing and social media efforts, and his record of success demonstrates that he understands what his clients need and the strategies necessary to achieve it. In addition to knowledge and strategy, Ed brings with him a personality that makes people comfortable at very difficult times in their lives. I have referred people to Ed in the past and have never had any complaints, which is important to me. When I refer someone to another lawyer, I never want to hear that the lawyer was unresponsive or did a poor job. Ed always makes me look good.
