Florida Child Pornography Possession Defense Attorneys
With the growth of social networking sites and increased access to the Internet, computer crimes like identity theft, possession of child pornography or solicitation of a minor have been increasing exponentially.
At the Orlando, Florida, law firm of Moses and Rooth Attorneys at Law, we represent people facing a broad spectrum of computer crimes. Regardless of the allegations you face, we can talk with you about your options in the legal system:
- Sexting: Sexting involves sending text messages with graphic sexual content, often of minors. Many of the individuals charged are high school students in relationships with minors. When the parents become upset, charges may be filed.
- Child porn: Even a small number of unlawful pictures found on a computer hard drive could result in the offender becoming a convicted sex offender.
- Solicitation of a minor: Many people accused of solicitation of a minor thought they were talking to underage participants in Internet chat rooms. In reality, they were chatting with police officers conducting a sting operation.
- Lewd and lascivious behavior: When a family member overreacts, when erroneous assumptions result, when false accusations are made — conduct that was intended to be innocent can be charged as lewd and lascivious behavior.
Consequences of a Conviction
These sex offenses, as well as other computer crimes, could have long-term consequences including sex offender registration, the Jessica Lunsford Act, GPS monitoring or even possible civil commitment. Registration as a sex offender will impact where you live and work. As a registered sex offender, your name and picture will be placed on the Internet, causing untold damage to your standing in the community.
The best way to avoid these consequences is to work with a forceful and effective attorney as soon as possible. Even before charges are ever filed, if you have reason to believe you will or are being investigated for sex charges, contact a criminal defense lawyer to learn how to protect your rights.
