Fighting Online Child Sex Offense Accusations
The seemingly anonymous atmosphere and widespread use of false identities by people on the Internet have created many situations where people end up being charged with crimes without ever intending to break the law. Common charges in this area include child pornography, solicitation of a minor and attempted child molestation.
Attempted child molestation charges can be brought even if there is no actual child involved, such as when an undercover police officer poses as a child and sets up an in-person meeting with an adult.
Concepts such as entrapment are legally complex, but I will do everything in my power to hold the police and prosecutors accountable. At every stage of your case, I will vigorously defend your rights.
Defending Clients Accused of Prostitution
Another common type of Internet sex crime allegations is those involving allegations of prostitution. Prosecutors have been particularly active at bringing charges of pimping and pandering online. Since the Internet is a relatively new medium of communication, the criminal law in this area is still in development and can be very complex.
