Sex Crimes Against Children

Accusations of sex crimes involving children generate very strong emotions. Because of this, you will likely not be treated fairly by police and prosecutors. Oftentimes, their overzealous investigation tactics will lead to the arrest and conviction of an innocent person. If you believe that you are a suspect or are the target of a sex crime investigated centered around child molestation, child pornography, child sex abuse, statutory rape, Internet solicitation of a minor, or traveling to meet a minor, then we strongly urge you to keep quiet and refrain from making any statements or admissions of guilt and call our Bradenton Sex Crime Lawyers at Whittel & Melton now at 866-608-5529.

Internet Sex Offenses Charged in Bradenton

The Internet and recent technology advancements has really transformed how we communicate. Social media chats, email, text messaging, and smartphone applications allow us to communicate with anyone somewhat anonymously. Chat room-related sex crimes were introduced to us in 2004 with the airing of NBC’s reality television series, “To Catch a Predator.” This series is what began the phenomenon of undercover cybersex stings, aimed at catching those suspected “predators” looking to engage in sex with minors. Once a chat advanced into meeting up for sex, the person would be arrested upon their arrival and charged with a sex crime. This still happens quite regularly today. If you have been caught up in an undercover Internet sex trap or have been contacted by police, then you need to remain silent and contact our Bradenton Sex Crime Lawyers at Whittel & Melton as soon as possible.
