Internet sex crimes charges can impact a person for years down the road, and if you’re facing these charges, the smartest thing you can do is continue reading and reach out to our experienced New Jersey internet sex crimes lawyer as soon as you can. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are some common examples of internet sex crimes?
As you can imagine, there are a wide array of actions and behaviors that may qualify as internet sex crimes. Perhaps the most common type of internet sex crime that our firm sees is child pornography. If you are accused of possessing, creating, or distributing child pornography, you can expect to face a wide array of penalties. That said, our New Jersey sex crimes attorney has significant experience combatting child pornography charges on behalf of our clients.
Other common internet sex crime charges we see are cyberstalking and revenge porn. Cyberstalking is when a person uses the internet to stalk another person, such as by watching them through their webcams without their knowledge or consent. Using the internet to blackmail a person can also be considered a form of cyberstalking.
Revenge porn, on the other hand, is when a person obtains or creates pornographic material without the subject’s consent. If a person is accused of possessing or distributing pornographic materials that were created without a person’s consent, they may face criminal charges. Even if the pornographic material was initially created with the person’s consent, but was distributed or possessed after a breakup, for example, it can be considered revenge porn.
