Conviction Of Internet Sex Crimes Charges Can Be Life-Changing

It Is Important To Enlist Experienced Criminal Defense

Under Minnesota law, an adult who uses the internet to engage with a person who is 15 or younger to share sexually explicit content or to solicit sexual conduct from someone who the adult believes is a child can face felony charges. Penalties may include a lengthy prison sentence and a requirement to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life.

If you face any type of internet sex crime charge, it is imperative to enlist help from a criminal defense law firm whose attorneys have experience defending clients in these types of cases. At Dusek Law, a criminal defense firm serving clients throughout North Dakota and Minnesota, we take a proactive approach to defending clients who face sex crimes charges so we can highlight weaknesses in the prosecution’s arguments.

Possible Defenses In Luring Cases

Many cases involving charges of solicitation of a minor over the internet result from a police sting in which an officer poses as someone under 15. An adult may be accused of making contact with someone they believe to be a minor, send indecent pictures or other sexual content, and arrange to meet the minor somewhere to engage in illicit activity.

Accusations of luring a child to engage in sexual conduct are serious. However, police can be overzealous in their attempt to arrest individuals in these sting operations. Depending upon the facts of your case, it may be possible to argue that police committed entrapment or otherwise violated your rights. It may also be possible to argue that you were unaware the party that you thought you were communicating with online was underage.

A Timely Response Is Important

If you are charged with soliciting a minor or any internet sex crime, or even if you are questioned by police in regards to charges, it is critical to enlist legal counsel immediately. What you tell police or prosecutors before enlisting legal counsel can irreparably harm your defense.
