Assault is defined in Minnesota as intentionally harming somebody; however, it can also involve the mere threats of harm.  Assault charges are extremely serious, and they can have devastating effects on employment, liberty, family custody cases, and the right to possess a firearm – even for hunting or target shooting.  The attorneys at Dan Homstad Defense have handled thousands of assault cases over the years.  These attorneys are expert trial lawyers and can protect your rights and liberty should you be charged with assault.  They have secured acquittals in the most serious of cases, saving clients dozens of years in state prison.  Don’t risk your precious freedom if charged with assault.  Turn to Dan Homstad Defense LLC for aggressive representation.  

Child pornography charges

Law enforcement officers have special software they use to monitor people they think may be sharing child pornography.  Officers target people who use “file-sharing” programs, and officers sit online with the ability to see just who in Minnesota is using a file-sharing program at a particular time.  If they think the person is sharing child pornography, they will get a search warrant and will take every electronic device in the house.  If they discover anything illegal on the devices, serious charges and consequences will follow.  Jail time, sex-offender treatment, no-contact orders with children (maybe even your own) and steep fines are common penalties. 

Sex-offender registration will be required.  And possession or distribution of voluminous amounts of pornography will result in long state prison sentences.  The attorneys at Dan Homstad Defense have extensive experiences in representing people charged in child pornography cases.
