File-sharing software can result in the unknowing transfer of illegal files such as child pornography to your hard drive. If there is a warrant out for the search of your computer, external hard drive or other equipment, you need to speak to an attorney as soon as possible. Do not make any statements to the police about who uses or has access to any computer in your house! In fact, do not make any statements without first consulting a lawyer.
In Georgia, it is legal to have consensual sex with a 16-year-old, but possession of a nude picture of the same person can result in child pornography charges. Possessing naked pictures of anyone under the age of 18 can result in prison time and registration on the sexual offender registry. If you have been sent unwanted pictures of anyone under 18, it is crucial to talk to an attorney about how to best handle the situation to avoid criminal charges. Whatever you do, do not send the pictures to anyone else as you can be charged with distributing child pornography. Other things to keep in mind are that you should not allow a police officer to search your phone; and even if a police officer has a warrant to take and search your phone, you should not make any statements or give out your password without first consulting a lawyer.
