Internet Sex Crimes
The Penalties For Internet Sex Offenses Are Severe
Use Of The Internet May Trigger Federal Charges
Internet sex crimes and related offenses can include:
- Possession or distribution of child pornography
- Soliciting a minor online/electronic solicitation of children
- Inducing a minor for prostitution
- Sexual assault
- Online solicitation of an adult
- Sex trafficking online
- Texting or sexting with a minor/communication of sexually explicit materials to children
The use of the Internet or phone in the commission of these offenses may result in federal wire fraud charges. You could also be charged with state crimes for the sexual abuse of a child.
In Internet-related cases, we often work with computer forensic experts to determine what evidence exists and whether it is admissible at trial. We will also determine whether law enforcement violated your constitutional rights when investigating you, arresting you or gathering evidence. Entrapment is also sometimes an issue in online solicitation cases.
Regardless of the circumstances, we use all available resources to forge a defense, whether it is to attack the state’s case on the merits in a trial or to orchestrate the presentation of the case to the prosecution and court to show that our client has been proactive, has support of family and friends, and is a good candidate for a lenient disposition. We take these cases very seriously and leave no stone unturned in seeking justice for clients.
