With child pornography and luring allegations, you need a Toronto criminal lawyer with a solid record of success. With minimum jail of six months (one year for all indictable offences), mandatory sex offender registry, and bans for up to life on internet use, contact with children, and parks/swimming areas, hiring the right lawyer is vital. I've been defending child pornography and other computer-crime cases for over 20 years.
For 23 years, I've been fighting these charges, protecting clients under investigation, and advising other lawyers. I know of no other lawyer in Ontario with more experience and success in these challenging, complex, and heartrending cases. This experience has also given me an edge, I believe, in other computer cases, be it threats by computer, harassing emails, or unauthorized social media posts.
I've won by cross-examining the computer expert (X.Z.), by attacking the search warrant (M.S.), by arguing delay (F.S.), and by getting the charges withdrawn (M.H.). In rare cases, my clients have avoided convictions with youth pleas (S.Y.) or with an obscenity plea (J.M.). For my latest win, read C.B.'s Case.
