Woman, 47, charged with possession of child pornography

There are certain thoughts or associations that may come to mind when it comes to the criminal justice system. For instance, many St. Louis residents may associate a particular criminal offense with certain individuals.

This is often the case when it comes to child pornography and other related sex crimes. Many individuals may associate these offenses with male suspects, as these types of charges are often filed against males. This is not always true, however, as these criminal charges, like any others, can be brought against anyone.

For instance, a 47-year-old woman was recently alleged to have possessed child pornography. The woman was arrested after investigators claim she arranged for a sexual encounter with a teenage girl. The woman allegedly made the arrangement with the girl's mother, and the meeting was to include not only the girl and the woman, but another male as well. When law enforcement arrested the woman, they reportedly discovered sexually explicit photos of children on the woman's cellphone.

It remains to be seen how the case will be resolved. However, the case illustrates how not all defendants fit a certain profile. Everyone can be subjected to criminal charges by the State, no matter what age, gender or other circumstances may exist in their life.

Accordingly, no matter who the person may be, it is vital that an effective child pornography defense be developed. Because nobody is immune from criminal charges, everyone should understand how serious those charges are, and what measures they can take when charges are asserted against them. Whether it be challenging a search and seizure, attempting to work out a beneficial plea deal or putting the government to its strict burden of proof at trial, a criminal defense is vital to everyone who is charged with a crime.
