Internet Sex Crimes

Child pornography crimes are very serious crimes that nearly always involve the use of the Internet. While charges within the state are serious, federal child pornography charges carry a mandatory minimum sentence of five years of imprisonment. Child sex trafficking and pornography are heinous crimes that invoke the anger of law enforcement officials everywhere and of society in general. However, it is not that difficult for someone to be falsely accused of an Internet child pornography crime if he or she has a computer that is used by more than one person. Anyone who is facing a charge of an internet sex crime needs to hire the best possible legal representation immediately to clear up the matter. An experienced attorney like Leonard J. Berger, Jr. will thoroughly evaluate your case to find ways to defend your rights.

Sexual Assault and Rape

An accusation or charge of sexual assault or rape means that both your personal and professional reputation may change forever. Even if you are not guilty, no one will ever look at you the same way again if the charge is added to your record. In the state of Pennsylvania, this charge carries severe penalties that can involve up to 25 years in prison as well as fines as high as $25,000. Those charged with this crime must also register as sex offenders or face further felony charges for not doing so. This is why it is so important to hire legal help as soon as you’ve been charged. An attorney like Leonard J. Berger, Jr. will use his knowledge and experience to help you get the best possible outcome.

Unlawful Contact with a Minor

Charges of unlawful contact with a minor or corruption of a minor is a charge that can be broadly interpreted but is still a very serious one. Simply buying a teenager a beer may result in a misunderstanding that could lead to this kind of charge. Such a charge can result in the accused being labeled as a sexual predator for the rest of his/her life. This type of charge can involve a minimum of seven years of imprisonment and/or $15,000 in fines. It is essential to hire legal representation to clear up any misunderstandings that resulted in this charge.
