Second Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor*

Charges

Four Counts of Second Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, NCGS 14-190.17; and Six Counts of Third Degree Exploitation of a Minor, NCGS 14-190A.

Description

State vs. 'Confidential Client' - The client was facing serious charges of downloading child pornography, and sought the assistance of Attorney Patrick Roberts, a highly skilled and experienced sex crime lawyer. The State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) and local law enforcement had uncovered illegal online activity linked to the client's IP address. Consequently, they obtained a search warrant and conducted a thorough search of the client's residence, leading to the discovery of several items suspected to contain child pornography. During this process, the client made a confession.

Despite the overwhelming evidence against the client, Attorney Roberts strategically presented mitigating factors to the district attorney's office. His relentless efforts and strong defense ultimately persuaded the State to offer a favorable resolution for the client. As a result, the client was granted a strictly probationary sentence, with no jail or prison time imposed.

Result

Probation

The client was sentenced to probation and granted the opportunity to transfer their probation to their new state of residency.

“I hired Patrick and his firm to represent me in a very sensitive and frightening case. I was able to come in for a meeting immediately and had one of the most honest conversations of my life. He was honest, direct, and kind. There was no hint of judgement from a single person on their staff They fought for my rights in a way I've never seen. I still joke with some close friends about the prowess that man has in a court room. Not only did he fight for me, he also pointed me in the direction of people who could actually help me. His confidence, knowledge, and support led to my charges being dismissed. I will forever keep their business cards on hand, and plan to use them for any legal matters, within their purview, going forward. If you've never done this before, feel hopeless, and don't know what the next step is... This is not an area of life where price shopping gives you a better deal. No matter the outcome, you can rest assured your case was handled in the best of ways with Patrick Roberts and the many powerful people he works with.”

“Law enforcement showed up at our house with a warrant to search the entire premises. They were after my teenage son. They knew every aspect of our life, right down to my wife's health condition. It was horrifying. No arrests were made, but the next 48 hours we did not know what to expect. We stayed close to each other as much as possible, not knowing what was going to happen next. We felt hopeless and felt that in a few days our son would be in prison.

I scoured the internet looking for somebody to help. I found Patrick Roberts... I called his office and he told us to come in right away.

Because Mr. Roberts worked as a prosecutor and a criminal defense lawyer in NC, he understands how the investigation process works. He was able to negotiate the best possible outcome for my son. If it were not for the experience and care that Mr. Roberts, my son would not have a future.”

Wonderful attorney

When our son was arrested on sexual assault and rape charges, I was lost. I searched and found Patrick Roberts. I was impressed with his resume so we met with him and hired him. Now our son's case is over. It has taken a long time to get to the end of this experience, but I thank God for sending Patrick Roberts our way!

This lawyer is the real deal!

“Mr. Patrick is a true professional. I have never in my life been in a position where my character was questioned, and Mr. Patrick's did a great job of keeping it that way. He was not at all judgmental and all too assuring about the positive outcome of my case, which helped me sleep better at night considering the consequences I was facing.

I was a first time offender so I was terrified at the possible 4-6 years I was facing but thanks to Mr. Roberts' extensive experience in the field, and good relations within the system he was ultimately able to reduce that sentence to 4 years of probation among other minor conditions. I am sure that I could not have been represented in a better way... and strongly recommend anyone who has an issue with the law to choose Mr. Andy Patrick Roberts.”

“Patrick Roberts is a fierce advocate on behalf of his clients. He and lawyers at his firm are excellent criminal defense lawyers who work hard to aggressively defend their clients. Patrick Roberts also has an excellent command of many of the technical issues...  that are implicated in cases involving technology, forensic science and the like. I've watched him dissect hostile witnesses on the stand, and argue for excellent outcomes for his clients.”
