Rhode Island School Bus Monitor Facing Child Pornography Charges

Posted by Matthew Marin | Jun 13, 2014 | 0 Comments

Last week the Rhode Island State Police executed a search warrant on the home of a Rhode Island School Bus monitor in Glocester, Rhode Island and charged the man with possession and transfer of child pornography.  The warrant was the result of an investigation initiated by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children which indicated that the computer at the residence was transferring prohibited child pornography by email.  The School Bus Monitor now faces child pornography charges which subjects him to up to 15 years in jail and up to a $5,000 fine, in addition to sex offender registration.

Rhode Island Child Pornography Charges

As law enforcement's ability to detect child pornography becomes more effective, the Rhode Island State Police have significantly increased the number of arrests and prosecutions for possession and transfer of child pornography in Rhode Island.  Oftentimes, these cases are based upon computer "meta data" or "indications" that the computer "may have" at one time contained a file which included child pornography.  Even being charged with possession or transfer of child pornography can be a devastating allegation.  Given the severe penalties, including up to 15 years in jail and sex offender registration, you need to hire an experienced, aggressive, and dedicated child pornography defense attorney to assist you in the defense of these charges.
