Federal Sex Crimes - Federal Child Pornography - Federal Internet Defense Lawyer Attorney
Being accused of an internet sex crime is a startling event. From the moment of the accusation, your reputation is on the line. Often times, your family, job, and friends are on the line as well. A conviction could mean prison, fines, and supervision for many years, as well as being permanently registered as a sex offender. The situation is far too serious to even contemplate handling any aspect of the case without an experienced attorney.
Potential federal crimes on the internet include child pornography, solicitation, or prostitution. In any of these types of cases it is not unusual for a law enforcement officer to attempt to speak with you before you have an attorney. You might think that there is no harm in answering a few questions, but you will likely live to regret it if you talk about the case without first consulting a qualified attorney. Remember, anything you say or write can probably be used against you. The stakes are almost always very high in this sort of case, so it is not a good time to test your luck.
