Internet Sex Defense Lawyer
This is a rapidly expanding area of criminal law. Both state and federal authorities prosecute individuals and groups that possess or distribute child pornography, solicit sex for money or attempt to meet minors for sex on the Internet.
It is common for prostitution to be arranged on the Internet. Law enforcement often set up decoys to pose as prostitutes for sting operations. In other cases law enforcement will monitor ads and Internet chat rooms looking for sex for hire. The most serious cases involve paying for sex with a minor.
Production, use, possession and/or distribution of child pornography is illegal. The penalties are severe and depend on the number of images and the age of the minors. The level of involvement with a group or other individuals is also considered significant as is a person's previous record of crime.
Police aggressively hunt for people that use the Internet to find victims. The use of chat rooms and sites such as MySpace and Craigslist are often reviewed by law enforcement searching for violators and many sting operations are set up to apprehend suspects.
There are numerous technical and factual defenses to Internet sex crimes. They include entrapment, lack of intent, illegal police searches and/or conduct and lack of knowledge. We look at all defenses and have the computer expertise needed to expertly handle these cases.
Just as important, we are skilled at arranging plea bargains in appropriate cases. An experienced attorney knows when to put the focus on reducing charges and penalties rather than enrage the court and prosecution by presenting a meritless defense.

Although each sex crime is unique, every sex crime is serious. It is essential to engage a qualified sex crime attorney as soon as possible. Never speak to the police or with anyone before consulting with an attorney. Do not make mistakes at the beginning of your case that will seriously hurt you later. There is too much at risk to do it alone.
