Internet sex crimes are acts of an illegal and sexual nature that are perpetrated through use of the internet. Internet sex crimes are serious, and can have devastating and long-term consequences if you are convicted. Where you live, and your employment prospects can be impacted for the rest of your life.
There are two main types of internet sex crimes:
Child Pornography includes the possession, creation, distribution, sale or production or child pornography defined as any pornographic material involving minors under 17 years of age.
Luring a Minor is communicating with a minor in a lewd or sexual manner over the Internet, as well as attempting to arrange a meeting with the minor to engage in sexual activities.
With the rise of internet crimes, many law enforcement agencies have created internet crime task forces to apprehend individuals with intent to commit sexual crimes with underage individuals or other types of sexual crimes perpetrated partially over the internet. Unfortunately, many of those who are charged with internet crimes are innocent.
