Albany Internet Sex Crimes Defense

Protect Your Freedom – Preserve Your Reputation

If you have been arrested, or believe you are under investigation, for Internet sex crimes, it’s vital that you bring in legal help right away. In the 21st century, the Internet has opened the door to types of crimes that simply couldn’t be carried out in the past, but our surveillance state – and its mistakes – create lots of problems for innocent people.

At Patituce & Associates, our attorneys have years of experience battling allegations on behalf of clients charged with Internet sex crimes. Effectively rebutting these charges demands detailed technical knowledge of the architecture of the Internet, and we have built one of Albany’s strongest Internet Sex Crimes practices through our tough, information-intensive approach.

Internet Sex Crimes generally fall into a few different categories, each requiring its own defense. If you’ve been questioned about or charged with Internet Sex Crimes like child pornography or soliciting a minor over the internet, don’t wait a single day to find tough, experienced legal representation. Your future depends on it.

Big Problems, In Your Own Home

Internet Sex Crimes are especially stigmatized today because they tend to involve minors – the downloading or transmission or child pornography, emailing or using chat to provide obscene material to children, or, most troubling to society, using the Internet to arrange contact with minors. If interstate travel is involved, the problems multiply. But there’s lots of ground to call evidence into question.

Each year, around 2,500 people are arrested for Internet Sex Crimes involving minors, and a significant portion of the supposed victims are actually undercover law enforcement officers. This complex area of law features local law enforcement, state investigators, and even the FBI. It’s important that you have attorneys at your side who can navigate the complicated jurisdictions involved, and push back at anyone – federal prosecutor or local sheriff – who attempts to circumvent your rights. At Patituce & Associates, we are fearless when it comes to protecting our clients, regardless of who is threatening your freedom.

What To Do If Questioned

Allegations of Internet Sex Crimes are extremely damaging, and aside from the legal implications, can cost you your job, personal relationships, and much, much more. Do not wait to bring in counsel. If questioned, or if a warrant is executed on your property, follow these steps:

  • Inform police that you have legal representation.
  • Say nothing else.
  • Call 518-300-1331 and tell us where to meet you.

Remember, anything you say to the police can and will be used against you, so don’t allow them to question you. Be polite, but be firm. Any effort you make to cooperate is likely to provide them with additional evidence. Stay calm and wait for your attorney to arrive.
