You need the expertise of sex crimes lawyers if you have been accused of sex-related crimes such as: solicitation or viewing child pornography via the web.
Being accused of an Internet sex crime (solicitation, predatory criminal sexual assault, possession of child pornography and attempted sexual assault,) is very serious business.
Sex-related charges carry consequences beyond being found guilty or innocent. Regardless of the outcome of your case, your reputation and your family's future can be at stake.
Child Pornography Cases:
There are some important questions to be answered during the early phase of investigation.
How did the images come to the computer of the person accused?
Are the images of real minors, or virtual images?
Were they downloaded intentionally or inadvertently?
