Defending Against All Types of Online Sex Crime Allegations

Not every lawyer has the skills, tenacity and legal resources to defend against high-stake Internet sex crime charges. At DiBenedetto & Kendall, P.C., we do. Our criminal defense attorneys have extensive experience exposing weaknesses in sex crime charges, even when evidence initially appeared incriminating. We know what elements to question when defending clients accused of serious allegations, including:

  • Possession or distribution of child pornography
  • Online solicitation of minors
  • Sexting

When your life is hanging in the balance, we can help level the playing field. Our criminal defense attorneys will dig into the evidence obtained against you. If you are accused of possessing child pornography, we will determine if the evidence in your case was obtained legally. We will fight for any evidence secured without a proper search warrant to be dismissed. Without enough evidence, the sex crime charges may be dropped. We can also consult computer network or Internet specialists who we have used in the past to understand if another computer user hacked into your operating system and downloaded the illegal images without your knowledge.

If you are facing online solicitation charges, we may be able to build a defense around entrapment. An alibi may also be used to show you were not at home when the illegal activity allegedly occurred. This is a highly complicated area of the law. Expert analysis may prove your computer's IP address was stolen, allowing the illegal activity to occur outside of your control. We have access to industry-leading computer experts who can help uncover evidence in our clients' favor.
