Contact Experienced St. Louis Internet Sex Crimes Defense Attorneys.
Just a few years ago, criminal charges such as possession of child pornography and child enticement required proactive action on the part of the accused.
For instance, in order to be convicted of child enticement, the defendant had to actually show up at a predetermined location for a meeting with the enticed minor. In order to be convicted of the possession of child pornography, the defendant usually had to have hard copies of illegal material.
Now, however, defendants do not need to arrive at a meet-up location in order to be charged with child enticement. Just making the appointment can lead to a conviction. And many individuals charged with possession of child pornography inadvertently sent or received an illegal image, often over a state line.
If you have been accused of a sex crime involving the Internet, it’s important to contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer right away. Prosecutors vigorously pursue convictions, and most charges involve a five-year minimum jail sentenceand mandatory registration with the sex offender registry.
