Bergen County Attempted Aggravated Sexual Assault Lawyers

With an office in Clifton, our New Jersey criminal defense lawyers handle many cases in Bergen County.  We also handle many computer crime cases across the state.  For years, Bergen County has had the most active computer crime unit in the entire state.  Based upon these recent arrests, it seems like they still do.  In addition, the arrests the make are not limited to Bergen County.

Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli announced the arrests of Seth Dixon of 598 Ezara Court, Brick, New Jersey and Walter Domanski, Jr. of 215 W 22nd Street, Ship Bottom, New Jersey. Seth Dixon was arrested on charges of Endangering the Welfare of a Minor, specifically by transmitting Child Pornography and conspiracy to commit Aggravated Sexual Assault, specifically by arranging for an accomplice to travel to Bergen County for the purpose of having sexual intercourse with a six year old female. Walter Domanski, Jr. was arrested on charges of Attempted Aggravated Sexual Assault and Attempted Endangering the Welfare of a Minor, specifically by traveling to Bergen County for the purpose of having sexual intercourse with a six year old female. Both Dixon and Domanski, Jr. were arrested without incident.

The arrest came about as a result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Computer Crimes Unit.  The arrest stemmed from an Internet investigation in which Dixon distributed Child Pornography via the internet, and then introduced Domanski to an undercover officer where Domanski used the Internet to make arrangements to meet a six year old child.

Having dealt with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office on these cases, I can say that these guys are really good at what they do.  They are constantly arresting people across New Jersey who have not learned anything from the “to Catch a Predator” series on NBC.  While they are great to deal with, the judges up there are tough on these cases.  Thus, it takes an attorney with experience with these cases to get a great result.

In this case, David Raymond N. Cegla of Bedminster has been charged with attempted sexual assault, endangering the welfare of a minor by engaging in sexually explicit dialogue and of endangering the welfare of a minor by distributing child pornography and by possession of child pornography.  He faces up to  20 years if convicted on all charges.  The BCPO reports that he is employed as  an information technology manager at JP Morgan Chase in the Whippany.  So, he has the money for a good attorney.  Hopefully for his sake, he gets one.

NJ YMCA worker faces child porn charges June 6, 2009

Alex Kahn, an 18 year old high school student from Basking Ridge has been charged with second- and fourth-degree charges of endangering the welfare of a child after an undercover investigation by the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office and the New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.  The second degree charge  is for the alleged distribution of child pornography and the fourth degree charge is for the possession charge.  Like most child porn investigations these days, the alleged child porn was found in a “shared folder” most likely for use in a P2P service like BearShare.  The problem with that is that most people do not realize that their downloads are automatically placed in a shared folder.

These cases are great for a defense attorney; at least they should be. However, most defendants including Mr. Kahn, confess to everything which severely limits a defense attorney’s options.  Without a confession, it is possible to avoid charges all together.  I know this because I have done it in my own practice.  Thus, when attorneys such as myself beg people to call an attorney first over and over again, we have clients like Kahn in mind. 

Nevertheless, even with a statement, you can still work out great deals.  Hopefully Kahn gets an attorney that knows what he or she is doing.  I see far too many attorneys that take computer crime cases when they know don’t even know how to turn on a computer.
