In this fascinating case, the defendant was charged with 53 counts of sexual exploitation of a child. After more than 2 years of intensive pre-trial litigation, including over one hundred pages of pre-trial motions and numerous motions hearings, Patrick Mulligan and his co-counsel secured the best possible result for the client: dismissal of all charges.
The charges against the defendant were based upon a law enforcement “Bit Torrent” software application. The prosecution alleged that its software detected child pornography on the defendant’s computer.
Rigorous pre-trial litigation, however, revealed substantial questions and inconsistencies with the government’s software. After multiple pre-trial rulings favorable to the defense, the prosecution eventually dismissed all charges against the defendant.
