Computer & Internet-Related Sexual Offenses in FL
The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Cyber Crime Unit has federal taskforces that investigate internet crimes that take place across the country. Particularly, this unit investigates cases in which particular IP addresses (computer identification codes) download explicit material such as child pornography or engage in solicitation of minors in chat rooms and other forms of social media. You may currently be under investigation by the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force, which is an investigative network of more than 3,000 law enforcement agents charged with responding to crimes that take place over the internet in such places as online communication systems.
This crime can be charged as either a state or federal crime, but our firm is prepared to go to both state and federal court for our clients. Many times entrapment methods are used by law enforcement. When the unsuspecting defendant “falls” for the bait, he or she often had no idea that they were contributing to what police now call an offense. It has even been found that on some occasions, computers were taken out of the hands of the owner and a sex crime was committed in their absence. For these reasons amongst others, it is so important to hire a Tampa internet sex crimes attorney that can competently represent you.
Contact our Tampa internet sex crimes lawyer from our firm today at (813) 281-2897 to gain the help of an experienced attorney and a former Hillsborough County sex crimes prosecutor.
