Need an Attorney for an Internet Sex Crime Allegation?
There are a number of various crimes that could be considered internet crimes, but internet sex crimes are offenses that are sexual in nature. Child pornography, solicitation of sex on the internet, and attempted sexual contact with an underage individual are examples of internet sex crimes a person can be accused of committing. Prosecutors work hard to ensure that you receive the highest available penalties for your case.
Penalties for Internet Sex Offenses
A conviction of an internet sex offense can have you facing jail or prison time, fines, restitution and you may be forced to register as a sex offender. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, your penalties may greatly increase. If you are found running a website that solicits child pornography, for example, you could be facing up to 10 years in prison; this is opposed to the possession of child pornography, which may only result in 1 year in prison.
