Your client, a 22-year-old community college student, has been accused of receipt and possession of child pornography. While files containing illegal images were found on his computer, your client insists that he was not responsible and did not know the material was there; he thinks perhaps that one of his roommates could have downloaded the material. If convicted, your client is looking at a minimum of five years in prison and a permanent designation as a federal felon and sex offender. How do you counsel him about a plea bargain offered by the U.S. Attorney's office? How do you explain his options clearly and coherently? What if he insists on bringing the case to trial?
