“Hired Matt Hirsch at a distance to take on a traffic case with a missed mandatory court appearance (or two). Even as the case dragged on longer than anticipated (not the fault in any way of the lawyer), and indeed went a couple rounds, Mr. Hirsch remained engaged, positive, and proactive. I firmly believe he and his firm resolved my case with the best outcome for me. Would recommend Cohen & Hirsch for cases of my type without reservation, and his working for me at a fairly great distance, without my ever appearing back in state, deserves particular note”

“Matt was a great treasure! Always kept calm and let me be the same. Looking at his fb feed, I was convinced he’s the right person for me. Helped get through a difficult situation. His fees were also comparable to the others given the amount of personal attention he paid to the case. Never had the trouble of dealing with the paralegals(as we all know what happens). He was always available on text. Great experience!!”

School janitor in DeKalb County arraigned for alleged sex crimes

On Behalf of | Dec 10, 2012 | Sex Crimes |

Being charged with alleged creation and possession of child pornography are serious crimes no matter where you work. Being charged with those alleged sex crimes while working at a school makes it that much more serious and requires a very strong defense.

A school janitor in DeKalb County was recently arraigned for allegedly producing and being in possession of child pornography. The charges include ordering over 50 DVDs that had child pornography on them from September, 2008 through March, 2011. In addition, it was discovered that he had allegedly installed cameras in the boys’ and girls’ bathrooms at the school in order to capture the students using the facilities. The janitor allegedly kept those videos in his home.

If the man is found guilty of the allegations of creation of the child pornography, then he could sentenced anywhere from fifteen to thirty years in prison. If he is found guilty of being in possession of child pornography, that carries a sentence of imprisonment for five to twenty years.

Being charged with sex crimes can deal serious damage to reputation and have a long-lasting effect on someone’s personal and professional life. Standing accused of crimes in connection with the creation of child pornography, particularly after working in a school, could be arguably even worse. Not only is there the chance of significant jail time and placement on the sex offender registry, it is unlikely that once freed, a defendant would ever be able to escape the stigmata that is associated with sex offenses involving minors.

In such as case, it is extremely important to seek out assistance immediately in order to minimize the effects that such allegations carry. There are strong defenses that can be used to mitigate the charges or even get them thrown out entirely.
