Cutting Through The Hysteria To Look At The Facts
It is easy for people to assume the worst when they hear what you’ve been charged with. A good attorney will ignore the visceral reactions of others and look at the facts of the case. Ms. Johnson can help you assess and fight any sex offense allegations, including those related to:
- Possession and distribution of child pornography
- Child molestation
- Statutory rape
- Indecent exposure
- Aggravated sexual battery
- Aggravated child molestation
- Rape or date rape
Consequences for conviction go well beyond a prison sentence, which can be substantial. A conviction could also mean registration as a sex offender, loss of a job, restrictions on where you can live, hefty fines and court-ordered restitution. Needless to say, you cannot afford to face the criminal justice system alone or rely on an inexperienced lawyer. You need a trial-tested advocate fighting in your corner.
What Are Internet Sex Crimes? How Are They Investigated?
The use of the internet or digital technology to facilitate or commit sexual offenses creates a whole new element of complexity to a case. Some common examples of sexually based offenses that use the internet include:
- The use of online sharing platforms for the creation, distribution or possession of sexually explicit images involving minors
- Online grooming, where adults build relationships with minors in chat rooms and other forums for eventual sexual exploitation
- “Sexting” with minors, which involves the exchange of sexually explicit messages, images or videos with someone underage
- The use of online forums to recruit individuals for sexual exploitation, or advertise to potential clients
It is critically important to understand that nothing that happens online is ever truly invisible. Some common methods of investigation include:
- Cybercrime units: Many law enforcement agencies have specialized units or task forces dedicated to investigating internet sex crimes.
- Digital forensics: Investigators use digital forensics tools to analyze electronic devices, recover deleted files, examine communication logs and identify online activities.
- Online undercover agents: This could involve officers posing as potential victims, monitoring online forums or chat rooms and engaging with suspects to gather evidence.
- IP Tracing: Investigators use techniques to trace the IP addresses associated with online activities to identify the location of individuals involved.
- Collaboration with internet service providers (ISPs): This collaboration can involve obtaining subscriber information, IP logs, and other relevant data.
- Analysis of communication records: Investigators analyze communication records, including emails, instant messages and social media interactions, to understand the dynamics of the crime, identify accomplices and build a comprehensive case.
If you are under investigation, you need the specialized knowledge that a dedicated lawyer can bring to the situation to make certain that your rights are safeguarded. It takes a comprehensive defense strategy to challenge the way that evidence was gathered and mitigate the fallout of these charges. Attorney Janet E. Johnson is a lawyer who will exhaust every resource available to investigate your case and fight back.
