Internet Sex Crimes Taking a Personal Approach to Law

San Diego Internet Sex Crimes Attorney

Complex Investigations & a Solid Defense

Our society uses the internet for everything now, including for sexual encounters and personal gratification. While not every sexual activity generated by the internet is considered illegal, many of them are. Possessing, creating, or distributing child pornography is a felonious offense, as is coercing a minor to engage in sexual activities and using the internet to facilitate other sexual offenses.

How Internet Sex Crimes Are Discovered

Accidentally happening upon bad content will not typically yield an investigation or internet sex crime charge, but the federal and state government do monitor and target suspicious online activities, particularly where child exploitation is involved. Sting operations are some of the most common ways that cases of child pornography are discovered, but internet sex crime charges can also arise from third parties receiving evidence through email and other online platforms.

Computer technicians and IT teams also occasionally stumble across evidence of illicit activities during their normal course of work. In some cases, a parent may be investigated for computers that they own, but a child, family member, or friend has used. The owner of the computer or data file will likely be the one targeted by investigators.

Since internet sex crimes are newer than other areas of law, it is vital that those being investigated or who have been charged reach out to a qualified legal counselor as soon as possible. Investigations that violate a suspect’s rights could be grounds for dismissal, but only an aggressive and experienced San Diego internet sex crimes attorney can help you protect your rights and your reputation. Many accused of a crime have never dealt with the legal system. The ease of mind that can come from speaking with a sex crime lawyer can often save weeks and months of anguish that accompanies an arrest and serious charges.

Evidence in Internet Sex Crimes Cases

Unlike some other sex crime cases, prosecutors may have access to entire computer systems and accounts during a case. Analysts, computer experts, and others will scour every document and exchange on the device or on a home network to uncover any evidence that can be used to prove the defendant is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Although you might think the evidence on a computer is assurance for the prosecution, it is often not enough to secure a guilty verdict.

Prosecutors must also prove that the defendant knowingly engaged in the sex crimes. If someone else borrowed your computer, that act may be enough to cast a shadow of doubt on the prosecution’s ability to prove you knowingly committed an offense. Without evidence of knowledge of the act, many cases of internet sex crimes are dismissed.
