Protection From Ever-Changing Internet Crimes
The internet’s influence in everyday life and business has grown immeasurably in the last few decades. This growth spawned new laws regarding computer-related crimes. The consequences of internet crimes can range from fines to prison or jail time.
Laws are ever-changing and new laws continue to be passed. However, the most common internet crimes include:
- Identity theft
- Child pornography
- Solicitation of a minor
If you have been charged or arrested for an internet crime, it is imperative that you contact an attorney with experience handling internet crime cases as soon as possible. They have your best interest in mind, so you should consult with your lawyer before you reveal any information or forfeit your computer to the police. We can help you with everything from child pornography to identity theft charges. Call our skilled legal team at our office to secure the strong defense you need.
Defense Against Solicitation Of A Minor Charges
Solicitation of a minor occurs when an adult has contact with a person who is under the age of 18 with the intent of engaging in sexual activity with him or her. When the adult has actual engagement in that act with the minor, it is a separate offense. The consequences of a conviction include jail time and inclusion on the sex offender registry, which damage your reputation, complicate your employment and invade your privacy.
You could be charged with internet solicitation of a minor for several reasons such as:
- Someone unfairly incriminates you
- Someone blackmails you
- You have been mistakenly or unfairly caught in a police internet sting
- A computer malfunction sent you to the wrong internet website
- Your comments in a chat room were misconstrued
Regardless of the reason, it is important to contact Kirsch Daskas Law Group as soon as you are accused of soliciting a minor on the internet. Many of these cases come from police entrapment. With our expertise, our criminal defense attorneys can build a strong entrapment defense to protect your freedom and privacy.
In the old days, this was called passing notes and the teacher took them and perhaps a child was sent to the principal’s office. This is no longer the case. Sexting is sending sexual content over text messages or messenger, Snapchat, etc. It can be words or pictures. If the picture is of a minor under the age of 18, one could also be charged with child pornography.
It is important to understand cellphone and computer forensics to properly defend these cases. At Kirsch Daskas Law Group, we are uniquely qualified to “dig deep” and investigate these types of communications to determine their validity and if they really do break the law. We work with some of the leading forensic analysts around the country to assist in preparing your best defense.
