Thumb Drives, Hard Drives, and Discs Are Commonly Used: How Can Dogs Be Used?
According to the article, these police dogs are only used when the cops are already searching a suspect's home for sexually exploitative materials containing children. They find thumb drives hidden in floorboards, behind ceiling tiles, and in hidden drawers. But, what law enforcement agencies fail to take into account, is whether or not the current house owner was aware the images were hidden in the home. People are quick to judge when it comes to putting “sick” sex offenders behind bars and often overlook justice. Using dogs to search for devices which are commonly used by thousands people across Arapahoe, Douglas, or Jefferson County is ridiculous and unjust.[pullquote align=”center” textalign=”center” width=”90%”]Are the billions of thumb drives on the market presumed to contain sexually explicit material?[/pullquote]
Sexually Exploitative Material Leads to Criminal Charges
If a person is found in possession of sexually exploitative materials involving children under the age of 18 in Kit Carson County, they will face charges of Sexual Exploitation of a Child – C.R.S. 18-6-403. This crime ranges from a class 6 to a class 3 felony, with up to 16 years imprisonment in the Colorado Department of Corrections (DOC). It is also a sex offense, which means that upon conviction, the defendant will be required to register as a sex offender and complete sex offender treatment overseen by the unjust Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB). If you have been contacted by the police, it is wise to remain silent and contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately to begin working on your behalf.
