Internet Sex Crimes Defense Lawyers In New York And New Jersey
State and federal prosecutors are actively cracking down on sex offenders. One of law enforcement’s biggest areas of concentration is the internet. The police and FBI know that sex offenders use the internet to make contact with underage persons and to view and distribute child pornography.
If you believe you have been the target of a criminal investigation or have been arrested for an Internet sex crime, contact an attorney immediately. The penalties for sex crimes are severe and may include a mandatory prison sentence, lifetime registration as a sex offender, court-ordered psychological treatment, monetary fines and probation.

Protect Your Freedom
Believe it or not, many people are convicted of an internet sex crime because they simply hand over their computer to the police. When law enforcement suspects that a person is soliciting minors on the internet or viewing child porn, they do not always seek a search warrant.
In many cases, they simply go to the suspect’s home and ask for permission to take their computer. Because the suspect is intimidated or does not know their rights, they consent and simply hand law enforcement the evidence the state needs to make their case.
If you are questioned by the police, know your rights. You do not have to speak with the police. You are required to provide your license or identification, but you do not have to answer any questions. Moreover, unless the police have a search warrant, you do not have to consent to a search and you do not have to give them your computer.
