Sarasota Internet Sex Crime Attorney

Bradenton Lawyer for Online Solicitation Charge Defense

Police in Florida and nationally are monitoring Internet sites regularly, hoping to catch individuals committing crimes. They are particularly interested in finding people involved in online sex offenses. Like other sex crimes, conviction on an Internet sex crime can result in being listed on the sex offender registry, significant jail or prison time, fines, mandatory counseling, probation and other penalties. Even more sobering is the nonlegal impact; jobs, community status and relationships are all vulnerable after an Internet sex crime conviction.

At the law offices of MSPerryLaw, we defend clients against these types of criminal charges. We examine the evidence against you, seeking to identify weaknesses in the prosecution's case against you. We then negotiate with the prosecutor, seeking a dismissal or reduction in the charges. Our attorneys' goal is to limit the damage a conviction could cause to your family, your career and your future.

Challenging the Evidence

We ask questions that include:

  • Were the police conducting a sting operation? Is an entrapment defense appropriate in the circumstances?
  • If the alleged victim was a child, was it even possible for our client to know the victim's age?
  • If the offense involves pornography, can it be proven that our client actually downloaded the material?
  • Did other people have access to the computer that was supposedly used to commit the offense?

Examples of Internet Sex Crime Charges

We defend clients against charges such as:

  • Internet solicitation of a person under the age of 18
  • Sex trafficking for prostitution
  • Enticing a child
  • Transmission of child pornography

We work with computer specialists to determine the facts of the case and ensure that the prosecution has charged you correctly. Our experts examine the contents of your hard drive, review Internet activity records and identify evidence that can be used to support a motion to dismiss or a plea bargain.
