Internet Sex Crimes, Child Pornography, and Chat-room Luring
State and federal law enforcement officers often enter chat-rooms and pose as purveyors of pornography. They also pose as minors who are interested in having sex with adults. They may ask to receive zip files of illegal images or they may offer to send pornographic images of children to chat-room participants who ask for them.
In both cases, once illegal images are sent or an adult agrees to meet somewhere with someone who they believe is a minor, investigators record their IP address and begin an investigation.
In some cases, Google’s own police may record the IP address of someone they see searching for pornography and visiting websites where illegal images are displayed.
There are several issues that must be addressed and considered in these kinds of cases, including whether there are other users of your computer and the actions of the investigators.
At Oberhauser Law, our office is committed to winning the case against you. In many cases, we are able to put the prosecution on the defensive by pointing out groundless assumptions, circumstantial evidence, and questionable actions on the part of investigators.
While we’ve been successful in winning child pornography cases, if there is no question of your guilt, there may be extenuating circumstances that may convince a judge to reduce the sentence or charge against you.
When you choose our law firm, Attorney Oberhauser will explore all options for having your case dismissed or the sentence against you reduced.
