Internet Sex Crime Allegations
An individual charged with a criminal offense is at serious risk of fines, jail time, and damage to reputation. When the criminal charge is for internet sex crimes, the damage to a person’s reputation, personal life, and professional career can result in life-long emotional and financial damage. A sex crime charge may require the convicted person to register as a sex offender and severely inhibit their future opportunities in life. While internet crimes are difficult to fight because of the storage of electronic file information, a skilled attorney is capable of arguing against seemingly airtight evidence.
Common Types of Internet Sex Crimes
Advancements in technology have caused internet crimes to become more prevalent in society. The most common internet sex crimes include the following:
- Solicitation of a minor
- Possession or distribution of child pornography
- Lewd online behavior
- Possession or distribution of other illegal sexual material
Along with technological advancements and the prevalence of the internet, files and electric information are often uploaded to an innocent person’s computer unknowingly by hackers and viruses. Similarly, information provided by the internet or other internet users is not always accurate. For example, a minor may attempt to pass as an adult on a chat room, putting another individual at risk of an internet sex crime charge.
