Internet Sex Crimes
Most Internet sex crimes involve children in some way. As such, even the mere allegation of such a crime can be enough to deprive a person of their right to a fair trial - and destroy their entire life.
At Lewin & Lewin, lead Attorney Robert Lewin has handled over 5,000 criminal defense and Internet sex crime cases. If you suspect that you are being investigated for an Internet-related sex crime or have already been arrested and charged -contact our Boston sex crimes law office immediately. We offer free consultations.A Serious Crime Requires Serious Representation
Individuals convicted of an Internet sex crime face life-changing consequences. Lengthy prison sentences, mandatory sex offender registration and GPS monitoring are real possibilities. Because these penalties are so severe, those accused of any sex crime should seek representation from an attorney whose entire practice is devoted to criminal defense.
At Lewin & Lewin, we provide defense to those accused of Internet sex crimes, including the following:
- Possession of child pornography
- Distribution of child pornography
- Child enticement (Internet solicitation of a minor)
- Dissemination of obscene matter
While e-mail records and computer hard drive memories tend to be seen as iron-clad proof for the prosecution, the fact is that that proof cuts both ways. In child pornography cases, prosecutors have much to prove beyond the fact that the pornography was on a hard drive. Questions that must be answered are:
- Did the defendant know there was child pornography on the computer?
- Was the computer corrupted or pirated via the Internet?
- Was entrapment an issue? (Especially in Internet solicitation cases involving undercover police operations.)
At Lewin & Lewin, we understand that any Internet sex crime case requires careful investigation, preparation and assessment of the facts. We explore every possible defense. Our principal, Robert D. Lewin, is a former Assistant District Attorney for Middlesex County and has dedicated himself solely to criminal defense since 1975. He knows the law and knows how to achieve favorable outcomes for clients. He can help you.Contact Us
