Vero Beach Man Arrested for Child Pornography Possession

March 28, 2014

A Vero Beach man was arrested on Tuesday after he allegedly admitted to police that he had downloaded “a lot” of child porn.

During a search of his home, the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office confiscated at least 21 videos of children engaged in sex.

IRCSO reports that the man admitted using a laptop to download child pornography. He didn’t know how many videos he downloaded. The man is being held on a $105,000 bond and detectives expect to file more charges once his laptop is examined.

Have you been accused of sexual battery or a sex crime in Vero Beach or Indian River County? Sex crimes are a serious matter, and once you are charged, it can be very hard to be treated fairly by the system because prosecutors zealously prosecute these cases due to pressures from the public and media scrutiny. Because of this, even if you are innocent, if can be difficult to “unring the bell” of a sex crimes arrest.

This reality is compounded by the fact that many times, defendants charged with sex crimes have many counts brought against them. Each image, each download, can be charged as a separate crime which puts a defendant at risk for consecutive felony sentences to be stacked. This is why it so important to hire a seasoned Sex Crimes Criminal Defense Attorney.
