You aren’t anonymous on the internet, so use caution

| Jul 29, 2019 | Internet Sex Crimes |

As we recently discussed, internet sex activity might not always be as innocent as it seems. You have to think about how your activities are aligning with the laws. For example, there are strict laws against child pornography in this country, which means that viewing content that purports to fall under this category should be avoided. We know this is easier said than done, so there are some instances in which a defendant might face criminal charges for actions that they didn’t think were illegal.

One thing that you should remember anytime you are online is that you do have some semblance of anonymity, at least on the surface. It is usually possible to view websites using an incognito option; however, there are still records that can be pulled that can show law enforcement what you were viewing.

If you are being accused of any internet sex crime, make sure that you find out what the exact charge is. Every charge will have specific criteria. If you can show that any one of those criterium is missing, your charge might not be able to stick. You shouldn’t count on only one point when you are developing your defense. Instead, work on a strategy that includes various components.
