Important Considerations in Internet Sex Crimes Cases
Our primary goal in defending clients against Internet sex crime accusations is to minimize the negative short-term and long-term consequences of the arrest and to prevent a conviction if at all possible.
We conduct a thorough investigation into the facts of the case, and we often use various expert witnesses and investigators. For example:
- We may hire a forensic psychologist to conduct a pre-plea sexual evaluation. If the expert reports a low tendency to commit another offense, that provides us with ammunition in our plea-bargaining efforts with the district attorney's office. If the report states a high likelihood of reoffending, that information is also useful to us and our client. It tells us during the early stages that plea bargaining is likely to be unsuccessful, that the sentence is likely to be harsh upon conviction, and that we should consider taking the case to trial and fighting for a not-guilty verdict.
- We may consult computer experts to examine the computers and the record of transactions or conversations that the state is using to build its case. An expert computer technician may be able to find evidence that the facts did not unfold exactly the way the police claim they did.
- Expert witnesses in the field of psychology may also be helpful in cases involving statements made in Internet sex chat rooms. For example, an expert may have information to support our argument that the conversation in question was based on fantasy and not on a real desire or intention to commit any type of sex crime.
