Internet Sex Crimes
Where there is complex technology involved, there is room for error. If you have been caught up in a child pornography sting or accused of soliciting children for sex on the internet, it is in your best interest to speak to an experienced criminal defense lawyer about your options for protecting your rights and reputation.
Preventing Convictions And Your Potential Penalties
A conviction for an internet sex crime such as possession of child pornography could haunt you for the rest of your life, requiring you to serve substantial time in prison and register as a sex offender. At The Law Office of Jessica Koester, LLC, we understand how much is at stake for you and will fight vigorously to clear your name and minimize your exposure.
Misunderstandings Can Lead To Federal Prison Time In Computer Crime Cases
The truth is, you do not even have to download child pornography to end up serving a prison sentence for it. Simply accessing a file sharing program and seeing a file can result in criminal charges. If you are accused of creating or distributing child pornography, federal law enforcement officials are more likely to get involved.
Even if your case is not picked up by federal law enforcement, you can still be left with a black mark on your criminal record and be required to register as a sex offender. This can make it practically impossible to find employment, rent property and live a normal life without harassment.
We will strive to minimize your exposure to the harshest penalties. We will push for a penalty that involves probation rather than jail time and minimizes the requirement to register for (or reduces the time on) the list of registered sex offenders.
