Understanding Sex Crime Charges
Recently, the media in St Lucie, Indian River, Martin, and Okeechobee Counties created hysteria associated with respect to internet solicitation of a minor. The most notorious of these media outlets is NBC, with the Dateline series "To Catch a Predator" catching the eyes and ears of millions of viewers.
Unfortunately, the government has responded to the political pressure that comes along with this kind of media coverage and public outrage. Instead of enacting reasonable penalties, the punishment has dramatically and irrationally increased for these offenses. This is the type of case best handled by a criminal lawyer.
The most common computer sex offenses investigated and prosecuted today are internet solicitation of a minor and possession of child pornography. There exists an array of different charging decisions the government can make in these kinds of cases.
