Internet Sex Crimes
Facing an internet sex crime charge can be overwhelming because it could cause long-term damage to your reputation along with the possibility of paying fines and serving jail or prison time. These charges can be brought after accidentally downloading illicit sexual material or an illegal file. The criminal defense team at The Bennett Law Firm, PLC understands that people are often wrongfully accused of these types of crimes and are ready to defend you.
The charges can range from the use of illegal pornographic materials to the chatroom solicitation of a minor including indecent exposure over a video stream or even Internet Child Pornography, known in Michigan as Child Sexually Abusive Material.
