Internet Sex Crimes

Over the past several years as the internet has gained in popularity, so have sex crimes over the net. Chat rooms and social networking sites have created more opportunities than ever before for sex crimes to abound in this sphere. Law enforcement agencies have increased their activities of monitoring these sites and prosecutions have increased significantly. Law enforcement involves itself in sting operations in attempts to catch people in inappropriate conversations or solicitations who may be otherwise law abiding citizens. They may be enticed in a sting operation to download or share inappropriate images over the net or even on cell phones. Internet sex offenses are considered criminal acts and carry harsh penalties. Some of these monitoring actions by law enforcement can border on entrapment and an experienced sex crimes attorney has the skill and knowledge to determine if this is the case. A few of the more common internet sex crimes are:

  • Soliciting or accosting a minor for sex
  • Downloading, possessing or manufacturing child pornography
  • Use of the internet for prostitution
  • Using a chat room to solicit a minor
  • Illegally using pornographic materials
  • Indecent exposure over a video stream
  • Illegal use of cell phone (texting, instant messaging)
