While Internet sex crimes can include children or adults, the federal government is extremely aggressive in pursuing people whom it believes to be in possession of child pornography or using the Web to meet young people for sex.
There are 59 federally funded task forces operating in the U.S. and three operating in Florida charged with investigating online sexual exploitation of children and transfer of child pornography. These task forces frequently use "undercover" police misrepresenting themselves online as underage girls and boys. Chat rooms, Facebook and MySpace pages are frequently used to entrap people.
If you have been arrested for an Internet sex crime or you believe you may be under investigation by the police for an Internet sex crime, get immediate legal help. Contact The Umansky Law Firm. Your freedom is at stake.

Consequences of a Sex Crime Conviction
The penalties for any sex crime are severe, especially if you must register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. But the personal costs of an Internet sex crimes charge can be just as serious as the criminal costs. It is embarrassing and harmful to family and marriage. If your job requires professional licensure, a security clearance, or involves children, you may lose your job. You may not be allowed to live within a certain distance of a daycare, playground, or school. Even high school kids can be convicted of Internet sex crimes and placed on the sex offender registry.
