Colorado Springs Internet Sex Crime Defense Attorneys
From solicitation to child pornography and more, internet sex crimes are receiving increased attention from the media and prosecutors. Though this form of crime is relatively new, it is already being vigorously prosecuted and poses serious potential problems for accused offenders, who can face lifetime sex offender registration, problems finding a place to live and work, heavy fines, and even imprisonment for their crimes.
Internet sex crimes vary from soliciting a prostitute or offering prostitution online to pornography involving minors to inappropriately luring minor children using the Internet. Though the consequences for these crimes vary depending on the circumstances and ages of those involved, a few commonalities prevail: most people convicted of Internet sex crimes are forced to register as sex offenders and all face significant social stigma as they seek to turn their lives around and lead normal, productive lives.
If you have been accused of Internet sex crimes, it can be easy to give in to all demands without considering your legal rights. However, you do have legal rights no matter what the accusation. Police must have a warrant in order to legally enter your home or seize your possessions. And you need not speak to any law enforcement official without a criminal defense attorney present to protect your rights.

The right lawyer can defend you in court, negotiate with prosecutors to have your sentence reduced or charges dropped, and help you deal with media attention and the social stigma associated with these crimes.
