Defending Internet Sex Crimes in Florida
Although internet sex crimes are often difficult to defend, there are some successful defenses our attorneys have used in the past. For instance, a defense may be entrapment, wherein a person is tricked or persuaded into committing a crime that they were not predisposed, or inclined, to commit. If this is the case, your lawyer will need to prove that you were induced into committing the crime. At that point, it will be on the shoulders of the prosecution to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that you were predisposed to committing the crime.
Other defenses may include proving factual innocence: that you were set up or that you did not actually visit the illegal site. Regardless of your circumstances, we will determine which defense is most likely to work for you so we can get help you avoid a lengthy prison sentence and other penalties.
