Child Enticement and Exploitation
There are both federal and state laws that make it a crime to entice or exploit a child on the Internet. Children are particularly at risk of cyber crime victimization because they might not appreciate the dangers or understand the anonymity of the Internet. Child enticement and exploitation can take various forms. It can involve or lead to sexual relationships with children (statutory rape, forcible rape of a child, indecent assault and battery of a person under 14) child pornography (posing or exhibiting a child in a state of nudity or sexual conduct, purchasing or possessing child pornography), dissemination of obscene matter, kidnapping, luring children into prostitution, and more.
If you have been charged with any crime involving child enticement and exploitation, the importance of speaking with an experienced criminal defense attorney cannot be stressed enough. Law enforcement officials and prosecutors take these crimes very seriously. Cyber child enticement and exploitation have garnered much attention with shows like “To Catch a Predator” and increasing media attention to child sex trafficking on the Internet.
