Internet Sex Crimes/Pornography
Mr. Seitles provides effective and aggressive representation for those individuals accused of internet sex crimes and possession/distribution of child pornography in both Federal and State courts.
The United States Attorney's Offices around the country and state prosecutors have greatly increased its' prosecutions of internet sex crimes and possession/distribution of child pornography. In the past, child pornography was not a highly prosecuted crime. Internet sex crimes can come in the form of solicitation of child pornography, downloading child pornography, transmitting child pornography through email, chat or US mail, solicitation of a minor via a chat room, and stalking. Indeed, the actual use of a child in pornographic material is a crime and its simple possession is a violation of federal and state law.
After the passage of the Protect Act and the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, the penalties in federal court for those who are convicted of internet sex crimes in any form described above are extremely severe.
In addition, there has been a flood of media information regarding internet child solicitation cases. Television programs like MSNBCs "To Catch A Predator" have caused law enforcement to charge hundreds of alleged "pedophiles" with state and federal crimes. These prosecutions are very troubling as non-law enforcement actors are being paid money to ensure these individuals are prosecuted for sex crimes.
Internet sex crimes require specific and creative defense strategies. This area of the law continues to evolve and the preparation of well thought out legal motions are a must to preserve your rights. Mr. Seitles' oral and written advocacy and aggressive defense tactics make the difference for his clients charged with internet sex crimes.
