Legal Defense Against State or Federal Cyber Crime Charges
With such ample access, many types of criminal offenses are now committed over the internet. This easy access has led to many changes in the law to fight against those who choose to participate in illegal activity. However, what has not changed is your constitutional right to be free from an unreasonable search and seizure by law enforcement. Our Los Angeles criminal lawyers have seen cases where state and federal authorities have violated the the rights of our clients during an investigation. Our cyber crime defense attorneys are here to help you in such an event. For additional information, please visit our dedicated internet crimes defense website, which contains specific information about how we can defend you in state or federal court.

Have You Been Arrested For An Internet Sex Crime?
If you have been accused of a cyber sex crime, your life could change forever. If you are convicted, you are not only facing substantial jail time and fines, but you may be required to register as a sex offender, sometimes for life. Our Los Angeles internet sex crime lawyers can defend you against any type of state or federal sexual related offenses, including internet crimes against minors, solicitation of a minor, luring a minor over the internet, or use of the internet to commit any form of sex crime.
Solicitation of a minor over the internet is one of the most common forms of cyber sex crimes today. This occurs when an adult visits internet chat rooms and social networking websites, such as Facebook. Their intent is to introduce themselves to minors and attempt to lure, or entice them to have sex. In an aggressive effort to catch people who solicit sex from minors over the internet, federal and state authorities have set up "sting" operations, where police will pose as a minor. If the adult request a meeting in person for sexual activity, or ask them for sexual related pictures, they could be charged with a criminal offense.
