Internet Sex Crimes Defense

Peters Law Firm Jan. 15, 2021

The Internet has made it possible for people all over the world to communicate with one another who probably never would have otherwise met. However, it has also opened the doors for many types of scammers with intentions that are less than honorable, including perpetrators of Internet sex crimes. Vulnerable victims include children, young teens and the lonely and naive. However, because of the complex nature of the Internet and communications by computer and smart phone, there are sometimes misunderstandings that can lead to someone being accused of an Internet sex crime who is not really guilty. If you’ve been charged with an Internet sex crime, you need to speak to an experienced Internet sex crime defense lawyer as soon as possible.

Types of Internet Sex Crimes

Internet sex crimes often involve children or teens who are minors. Solicitation of minors by adults or deceiving a minor into running away from home to meet for sex or sex trafficking purposes occurs when minors are unsupervised by parents or are having difficulty at home or school. Distribution and possession of child pornography is also illegal and may carry severe penalties. If someone should access child pornography unintentionally and is charged with the crime, it can jeopardize his or her personal and business reputation and lead to undeserved sentencing. That’s why it’s so important to contact an Internet sex crimes defense lawyer if this should occur. An experienced Internet sex crimes defense lawyer can investigate your case to uncover the facts and determine what really happened.
