Scottsdale Internet Sex Crime Lawyer
Defending the Rights of the Accused for Over 20 Years
Today, a growing number of crimes are occurring online or using the internet
as a tool. Because of the anonymity that the internet provides, a number
of these crimes are sexual in nature. An internet sex crime, especially
one allegedly committed against a minor, is a serious criminal offense
that carries a number of far-reaching consequences. If you have been accused
of an online
sex offense, it is imperative that you contact a Scottsdale sex crime attorney at
the Law Offices of Stephen L. Duncan, P.L.C. to discuss your options.
Our office accepts the following types of cases:
Downloading or uploading of
- Solicitation and/or luring of a minor
- Online sexual assault
- Cyberstalking of a sexual nature
A sex crime conviction may not only result in lengthy incarceration, expensive
fines, and a permanent criminal record, but may also include mandatory
sex offender registration which can impact where you are allowed to live,
what type of job you can have, and other collateral damages. The limitations
and severe loss of reputation this can cause can be life changing. With
so much at stake, you should immediately retain an experienced attorney
who can review the facts of your case and build a strong defense aimed
at protecting your rights.
Potential Defenses to Internet Sex Crime Charges
Just because you have been accused of a sex crime does not mean that you
are guilty. There are a number of potential defenses that may apply to
your case, including:
- Law enforcement did not read you your Miranda Rights
- Law enforcement illegally obtained evidence
- Your online identity was mistaken
- Law enforcement posed as minors on the internet (entrapment)
- Procedural misconduct
