Fort Bend County Internet Sex Crime Attorney
Under investigation for internet sex crimes in Fort Bend County?
Thousands and thousands of people use the internet every single day at work, at home, and as a means of communication and a form of entertainment. A lot of people assume that they are safely hidden behind the screen of the computer and that their actions will remain anonymous; however, this is not true. When you use a computer, phone, hand-held device or other means to access the internet, you are creating a record and a pattern that some law enforcement officials can trace back to your identity. Internet sex crimes are not anonymous either and if you are accused of committing any act on the internet, you could potentially be arrested and charged with a cybercrime. Internet crimes may include child pornography, sexting, lurking, enticing or suggesting sexual interaction and sending or receiving sexually explicit content from another person. These crimes are very serious and if you are arrested, you need to contact Stornello Law Firm, P.C.
Online solicitation for a sexual act or charges of internet sex crimes can lead to a criminal charge and could potentially cost you your freedoms. Sexual offenders are seen as nuisances in the community, and prosecutors work hard to ensure that you receive the maximum penalties available. If you are convicted of an internet sex crime, you could be facing prison time, fines, restitution and restraining orders as well as be forced to register yourself as a convicted offender for the rest of your life. The online sex offender registry is a public database that will provide information regarding your conviction, where you live, and other personal information such as name, age and defining characteristics like tattoos and scars. The moment you are arrested and charged with this offense, you need to retain aggressive representation from a Sugar Land Criminal Defense Attorney at Stornello Law Firm, P.C.
