Charged With a Sex Crime for Using Your Own Computer?
Raleigh, North Carolina, Internet Sex Crime Defense Lawyer
Many people using their home computers for browsing the Internet and engaging in legal adult activities get charged for crimes they don't even know they are committing. Police have established sting operations to draw adults into teen chat rooms and child pornography sites, then charge the person with child pornography, Internet solicitation or solicitation of a minor. These sting operations may be unconstitutional.
Child pornography and solicitation are sex offender registry offenses.
