Defense Against Federal Sex Crime Charges
Federal sex crime charges typically involve allegations of crossing state lines or international borders to commit an offense of a sexual nature. Internet sex crimes are also frequently prosecuted at the federal level, particularly in cases involving the production or distribution of child pornography.
Any of the following types of activity may draw the attention of federal prosecutors.
- Child pornography
- Child exploitation
- Human trafficking
- Trafficking for prostitution
- Kidnapping in order to commit a sex crime
- Traveling to another country to engage in sexual activity with a minor

The Stakes Are High ♦ You Need An Aggressive Criminal Defense
The reality is that a person does not have to download illegal sexual material in order to be charged with an internet sex crime. Merely accessing a file-sharing program can lead to very serious criminal charges that, upon conviction, could result in multiple penalties, including a prison sentence and the requirement to register as a sex offender.
To protect your rights and freedom and to minimize the consequences of the charge, it is crucial that you immediately seek representation from a criminal defense lawyer with experience in handling evidentiary and procedural matters at the federal level.
