In recent years, Internet sex crimes, particularly those involving minors, have gained notoriety as more homes have connected to the Internet and newer types of social media have allowed people who may not know each other at all to connect from the privacy of their own homes. The public profile of these crimes has risen on the back of coverage on television and in the news. Police are routinely using sting operations, including posing as minors, to lay the foundation for prosecution for these offenses.
Unlike many other serious sexual offenses, Internet crimes often involve no contact between the alleged perpetrator and victim. However, like any other sexual offense, the consequences for an Internet sex offense conviction are severe and potentially permanent. Consequences include restrictions on contact with minors, restrictions on where you are allowed to live, mandatory registration as a sex offender, participation in several years of sex offender treatment and therapy, lifetime supervision and potentially lifetime in prison.
This added notoriety has created additional public pressure on law enforcement and prosecutors to be aggressive in pursuing and prosecuting these types of crimes.

Examples of Internet Sex Offenses
An accidental download of a pornographic image involving a minor may form the basis for a charge of Sexual Exploitation of a Child. Many cases, particularly those that result from police sting operations, do not even involve an actual minor. For instance, using the Internet, a computer, text messages or almost any other form of electronic communication to persuade someone who you believe to be less than 15 years of age to expose themselves or to observe you unexposed can form the basis for a charge of Internet Sexual Exploitation of a Child. If you encourage someone you believe to be a minor to meet you for even non-sexual purposes after having discussed sexually explicit behavior over the Internet, you may be charged with Internet luring of a child.
Our firm offers its representation to individuals who are facing any computer related crimes such as:
- Possession of child pornography
