Cyber Sex Crimes & Pornography Attorneys in Columbus

The Internet opens the door to cyber sex crimes and pornography, with children and teenagers often being easy prey. However, while cracking down on sexual predators, authorities also use technology to gather evidence for prosecution. Being on the wrong end of cyber sex crime or pornography allegations has devastating consequences if convicted under state or federal laws. Our sex crime attorneys in Columbus, Ohio, at Yavitch & Palmer are highly experienced in defending clients’ rights in cyber sex crimes, especially when falsely accused.

Child pornography and the Internet

Child abuse is a broad legal area that encompasses physical, sexual, or emotional mistreatment of a child and is primarily regulated at the state and local levels. However, child pornography, which today exploits children expansively through the Internet, reaches across state lines and globally, involving international child porn rings.

While sex offenders get creative in covering their tracks, the FBI and other authorities become creative in following their trails, often busting alleged offenders in various U.S. states, along with their international connections. A collaborative effort between federal, postal, immigration, overseas and state and local police may go on for several years until authorities believe they have all the parties involved in a particular network.

Some of the most recent types of cyber crimes are termed sextortion and sexting. Predators who get a hold of teens’ sexually explicit photos can blackmail the teen (sextortion), using it for pornography extortion by threatening to show images to parents, school principals, or the police.
