Representing Adults and Juveniles Facing Internet Crimes
Internet crimes include general computer crimes and certain sex offenses, including:
- Identity theft and credit card fraud
- Internet Fraud/Scams
- Enticing a minor over the Internet/Internet extortion
- Child pornography
Child pornography is all too easy to find online, and there are numerous ways it can end up on a computer. It can be accidentally downloaded or downloaded without the user’s knowledge. Sometimes it is part of an adult pornography download. In some cases, someone other than the computer’s owner may have downloaded the pornography.
If juveniles are caught texting/sexting, e-mailing or using social media to send sexual content or images of minors, they may be charged with possessing or distributing child pornography. Even if the content is exchanged between consenting minors, they can still be charged with these internet crimes.
