Internet Sex Crime Attorneys in Colorado
Protect Your Rights
The use of the internet has allowed us access to endless streams of information, but it also poses serious risks. Families with children or computers that are easily accessible to many can have illegal information on the hard drive from various searches from multiple individuals. When accused of any internet sex crime, you must ensure that you protect your rights and take action to avoid a conviction. With the passage of House Bill 09-1163, the penalties for internet sex crimes involving children were increased, and any transfer of sexually explicit material to a child under the age of 14 by internet or other electronic media is charged as a 4th-degree felony.
The laws have also changed with regard to minimum penalties for certain sex crimes, and extensive prison time is often mandatory in a conviction. A Colorado criminal defense lawyer from our firm should be contacted without delay if you are accused of an internet sex crime.
