Internet sex crimes are just that: sex crimes committed through the use of the Internet. Common Internet sex crimes charges include:
- Child Pornography: Due to complex technology and the World Wide Web, accessibility of child pornography has increased. Often, allegations of child pornography involve uploading or downloading content from file-sharing sites.
- Online Solicitation: Online solicitation is a broad area that encompasses numerous activities and communications via the Internet. It can involve using online forums and bulletin boards to post suggestive advertisements that are attractive to minors. Online solicitation can also refer to the use of instant message and chat to obtain photographs of naked minors or to set up meetings with underage individuals.
- Sexting: Texting has become an essential method of communication in our society, especially for juveniles and for college and university students. Sexting, sending pictures of naked people or those involved in suggestive activities, also has made its way into the standard communications of many people. However, by sending or receiving photographs or videos of individuals under the age of 18 in compromising situations or unclothed, the sender and the recipient can be charged with an Internet sex crime
Internet sex crimes can be prosecuted through both state and federal judicial systems. Conviction brings heavy penalties including registration as a sex offender and mandatory minimum prison sentences.
