Illinois Internet Sex Crimes Defense Attorney

Internet Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer Serving Cook County, Will County and DuPage County

Along with the proliferation of computers, smartphones, and Internet-capable tech devices, has come an ongoing escalation in Internet based sex crimes. Accordingly, Illinois authorities conduct an increasingly aggressive prosecution of online sex offenders. You will face life-altering penalties that threaten your freedom, your family, and your employment if you are convicted of online sex crimes of any kind, especially those involving children. When you are charged with the serious crime of using the Internet for illegal sexual purposes, mediocre and inexperienced attorneys won’t do. The attorneys in the law office of McPherson Harry & Associates, P.C. have the special skills and knowledge of Internet criminal laws to continue our successful defense of clients throughout the Chicago area facing a variety of Internet sex charges.

Internet Sex Charges in Chicago

Illinois law covers a wide range of Internet sex offenses, including:

  • Dissemination of obscene and sexually exploitive material to a minor
  • Online child pornography possession and distribution
  • Online solicitation of a minor to engage in sex acts
  • Sexual importuning and harassment
  • Webcam, chat room, and instant message lewd sexual offenses
  • Online solicitation of prostitution and facilitation of prostitution

However you come to be charged with using the Internet for sex crimes, you are immediately cast as a predator at best, a pedophile at worst; the kind of criminal that judges and juries don’t like, especially if it involves the intentional enticing of a minor. In Illinois, sex offenders are banned from using social network sites and new laws mean retroactive registration for some sex offenders. Child protection authorities and the public are making aggressive demands for the prosecution of Internet abusers to the fullest extent, and law makers are imposing strict penalties for felony Internet sex charges, which include:

  • Up to a 20-year prison term
  • Up to $25,000 in fines
  • Sex offender registration
  • Restrictions on being in the presence of children, schools, or parks
  • Supervised probation

The attorneys at McPherson Harry & Associates, P.C. know how Internet sex crime accusations can wreak havoc on your life, with far reaching implications for you and your family. Without judging you, we will ensure your right to a fair hearing and defend you against the aggressive entrapment techniques that police frequently employ. Our goal is to submit appropriate pretrial motions to have your case dismissed, seek an agreement for probation, or ask for a reduction in charges to a lesser offense, and for reduced fines. Contact us for a free consultation to discuss your Internet sex crimes charges. We have three convenient offices located in the Chicago area and handle cases in DuPage, Cook, Will, and Kane counties.
