Internet Crimes Involving Children
Internet sex crimes involving tricking an innocent child seem all the more serious and dangerous; Prosecutors strive to give sex offenders the maximum punishment in these cases.
If you have been accused of accessing or downloading child pornography through a file sharing program such as Limewire or Kazaa, or if you were arrested when you went to meet a child you chatted with online, you need to have an experienced attorney who is not intimidated by the police or prosecutors.
As defense lawyers, we have handled numerous cases in federal and state courts where individuals were charged for responding to email solicitations to purchase, upload or download child pornography.
