What is an internet sex crime?

The first thing you need to understand is that the phrase “internet sex crime” is a blanket term used to describe various types of criminal sexual activity on the internet. One of the most common types of internet sex crimes is the possession or distribution of child pornography. The other two most common types of internet sex crimes are revenge porn and cyberstalking. Revenge porn involves obtaining or creating pornography without the subject’s consent. It’s worth noting that even if you created the pornography with the subject’s consent initially, if you then broke up and no longer have their consent to possess or distribute it, you could be charged with a crime. Cyberstalking (rather self-explanatory) involves a person using the internet to stalk another person. For example, if you were allegedly caught spying on someone through their webcam, you’ll most likely face criminal charges. You may also face cyberstalking charges if you use the internet to blackmail someone.

What are the consequences of an internet sex crime conviction?

If you’re convicted of any sort of internet sex crime, you will face a wide array of consequences that can significantly impact your life for years to come. To start, you may face high fines, a period of incarceration, and more. Additionally, you will most likely have to register as a sex offender under Meghan’s Law, especially if you were convicted of a child pornography charge. Regardless of the internet sex crime you’re facing, you need competent legal assistance in your corner. Our firm is prepared to fight for you, every step of the way.
