OP&A is investigating me for pictures found in my computer use by my mentally disable adult son's. What type of lawyer do I need

Bridgeport, CT |

The Office Protection & Advocacy for disable adult cutoff all communication with my son, is this legal? What can OP&A do to me? Are they planning to challenge my guardianship? What is the best way to fight the state's attempt to revoke my guardianship? How do I justify the pictures, which I think are harmless but OP&A claim they are sexually explicit? The computer is password protected, but the group home somehow got access to the files without my permission. Isn't that invasion of privacy?

You pose too many questions to adequately answer on a forum such as this. As counsel suggests, it may be a good start to speak to a criminal defense lawyer regarding the pictures that are on the computer. Without more information, it is difficult to determine whether the pictures will cause problems with the OP&A. If the pictures are found to be sexually explicit and certainly the nature of the pictures (sexually explicit of children, disabled adults, etc.), then big problems will be coming. The fact that the files were password protected will not provide any type of defense or protection.

As to whether the OP&A is planning to challenge your guardianship, again, without specific details it is difficult to answer that question. Talk to an attorney.

We can not predict what they will challenge and what they'll do. You and your son should both get criminal defense attorneys. The attorney can decide if they had the necessary paperwork to do the searches etc. Ask your attorney.
