Dallas Internet Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer
Are You Facing Criminal Charges for Internet Sex Crimes?
Internet sex crimes can be especially severe because of the electronic trail that they can leave. The nature of cyber crime means that authorities could have been conducting an investigation for months completely unbeknownst to you, and gathering evidence long before you are even aware that you need a defense lawyer. Sex crimes, unlike other crimes, carry a social stigma that is strong enough to destroy an entire reputation singlehandedly. While allegations of a sex crime can certainly be harmful, there is little worse for community and familial relationships than sex offender registration. Sex offender registration is unique among criminal penalties because it is lifelong and publicly accessible. Furthermore, it does not allow any room to tell your side of the story, and most registered sex offenders have been the subject of discrimination, suspicion, and even harassment
Common types of internet sex crimes include:
- Solicitation of a Minor
- Possession of Child Pornography
- Distribution of Child Pornography
Although internet crimes often provide seemingly watertight evidence, there are many different strategies that your attorney can use in your defense. For example, child pornography charges do not lead to an automatic conviction even if there is computer evidence that you viewed or obtained child pornography. Just because information is on your hard drive or in your internet history does not necessarily mean that you intentionally went to that site. Many internet sites install information on your computer without your knowledge, verification, or consent. Our skilled sex crimes defense attorneys may be able to trace the original source of the illegal content and prove that you did not access the site on purpose. We have also argued cases on the grounds of entrapment and third party computer use. If you have been accused of a sex crime, you should strongly consider hiring a Dallas sex crimes defense attorney at the D'Amore Law Firm for your legal representation.
