Posts tagged "Internet Sex Crimes"

Sex-related offenses online are handled very seriously

The internet makes it easy to connect with people who you might not ever have met otherwise. For some people, this is a great opportunity to expand a business or find out about different cultures and places. Unfortunately, it also comes with a darker side. Some individuals use the internet for illegal purposes.

Understanding what is considered criminal activity online

There are many different things online that can violate the law. Internet sex crimes are one specific category that some might view in a very negative light. Facing charges for something that falls under that umbrella is a challenge because you have to ensure that you launch a solid defense without attacking any alleged victim.

Sensitivity is imperative in online sex crime defenses

Facing sex-related criminal charges is a very frightening experience. Not only are you being accused of something illegal, but your personal life is also being put out there for everyone to hear. This can make it challenging to develop a defense and face the charges. You need to ensure that you are able to relay your side of the matter to the court without putting the alleged victim in a negative light or saying anything that might make a juror think you are guilty.

Reconsideration of sex offender registry classification ordered

One thing that people who are being charged with child pornography might not think about is having to register as a sex offender because of a conviction. There are two sides that don't see things in the same way when it comes to this. On the one hand, some want to protect the convicted person's rights. On the other hand, most agree that the children need to be protected.

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

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.

Internet activity isn't always as innocent as it may seem

The internet has opened up a world of possibilities for information and entertainment, but you shouldn't be careless when you are online just because things are available via your computer, tablet or smartphone. It is still possible to engage in illegal activities even when they are readily available.

Child porn charges might lead to registering as a sex offender

The pull to view anything and everything on the internet is understandable. Computers, tablets and smartphones bring the entire world to us. While there are many good things that you can do on these devices, there are some that must be avoided at all costs. One of these is viewing child pornography. While you might think that there isn't anything wrong with it since it is readily available, just looking at child porn on the computer can lead to criminal charges.

Child pornography: Beware of what you view online

You might think that you can look at whatever you want when you are on the internet. While there are many things that you can legally view while you are online, some are actually illegal despite their presence. This is the case for child pornography. It is fully illegal to view, possess or take lewd pictures of people who are under 18 years old. These activities are covered under federal and state laws.

Fight back against sex-related charges from internet activities

When you are surfing around the internet, you might not think too much about what you are looking at. If you are into adult material, you need to ensure that you aren't looking at underage individuals who are in sexually explicit positions. You might be charged with an internet sex crime if you are viewing pornographic materials that involve minors.
