A potential client of mine has the following situation and I figured I would try it in the court of public opinion.
D. was charged and ended up pleading guilty (although he has always maintained his innocence) to a federal charge of possession of child porn (just random pix, no one who was ever identified). He ended up serving several years in the pen (it was his first offense) and also served a term of supervision (like probation) that lasted several additional years. He completed both without incident.
D. is now a "free" man although he has to register as a sex offender and has some other conditions for the rest of his life.
Suddenly, evidence has come forward (similar to Tim McVeigh's case) that the information for the search warrant was known by the FBI to be false.
All D. is looking for is to get rid of the conviction and no longer have to register.
Would it bother you if he tried to fight this case?
Would it bother you if he won?
Thanks in advance for your opinions.
