Default Intro-- Tony The Tiger from Missouri

Hello,

My story is really my brothers' story. I am writing this because my brother (Scott) is not allowed to have Internet access. Scott is about to be sentenced next week and he is getting real nervous about it. I found this site and was wondering if someone had went through a similar situation.

Scott was arrested about 10 months ago for downloading illegal (child) pornography. His attorney has been very good up until he got my brother to accept a plea-bargain. The prosecuting attorney's plea agreement is 5 years (maybe more) and life time probation. The pre-sentencing probation officer today recommended 15 years and life time probation. There is a lot more to the story so I will try to keep it short. He has been through all the psychiatrist and polygraph stuff to show that he in not a molester however that does not appear to be helping him.

Is there anyone here that can discuss this subject and help inform us of what is going on here. Scott and I have many questions and concerns we need someone to help us with.

Thanks in advance for your help in this matter,

Tony

Welcome to PTO...You may want to check out our Legal Forum to see if anyone over there can assist you. My brother did state time in MO for getting a minor pregnant...but since the circumstances are different, I dont think I would be much help. Best of luck to you and your brother!

Default Similar Situation

Hello Scott,

My son has gone through something similar only he was in an adult chat room that was being monitored by th PD. He talked about sex to a minor and then got busted. What state are you in? I'm in AZ and my son just got out of County Jail (he was in for 1 year), has lifetime probation and has to wear a GPS monitoring bracelet. Ther laws are crazy (vague and ambiguos) for these tiypes of crimes. The plea bargin seems really harsh. All I can say is hang in there.

Hello Sue, Thanks for the help and word of encouragement. We are in AZ as well. I have passed it on to my brother. I assume your son was a first time offender.

We would also like feed back from other that were first time offenders for downloading pictures. We would like to know what sentences are being handed out however it looks like EVERYONE gets lifetime probation with GPS bracelet.

Tony
