We at Kolbeck Law Office in SD have extensive experience in defending our clients in these types of cases, and we know what it takes to put you in the best possible position.
What Qualifies As An Internet-Based Sex Crime
If both you and your significant other are minors, and participate in sexting, any exchange of pornographic material legally counts as child pornography, even if both participants are minors. Any kind of inappropriate photos stored on computers, transmitted by computer and other communication devices like cellphones qualifies as an internet-based sex crime. Regardless of the nature of your intentions, even asking your significant other to participate in sexting can count as solicitation of a minor for sex.
Charges like this are extremely serious, and although the best-case scenario is to get the court to drop the charges, that isn’t always the case. When dropping charges is off the table, we will fight to mitigate the consequences. Avoiding jail time or the court listing you as a sexual predator is a primary goal when we cannot get the criminal charges dropped.
