Florida Internet Sex Crimes
Smartphones, computers, and tablets have become part of our everyday lives, which is why internet sex crimes have dramatically increased in recent years. Online sex crimes generally involve arranging in-person meetings and activity or the possession, sale, or sharing of prohibited digital images or recordings.
Our firm handles the following types of internet sex crimes:
- Child pornography – Knowingly possessing, viewing, or otherwise controlling a photo or video of a minor engaging in any sexual conduct is a third-degree felony, which carries a maximum prison term of five years.
- Online solicitation of a minor – Knowingly seduce, solicit, entice, lure, or attempt to do any of those things to get a minor to participate in sexual activity is a third-degree felony.
- Traveling to meet a child – Traveling or attempting to do so in order to engage in a sexual act with a minor is a second-degree felony, punishable by imprisonment for up to 15 years.
- Lewd or lascivious conduct – This offense means intentionally masturbating, exposing genitals in a sexual or offensive manner, or otherwise committing a sexual act by using an online service to be viewed by a minor under 16 years old. If the offender is at least 18 years of age, then it is a second-degree felony. If the offender is under 18, then it is a third-degree felony.
In addition to a lengthy prison sentence and a fine worth thousands of dollars, a conviction will also result in registration as a sex offender. Furthermore, if the offense occurred in multiple states or you crossed state lines to allegedly commit a crime, then you may be subject to federal charges, which can lead to harsher penalties, including years spent in a federal prison.
Serving Orlando, FL Since
words can't describe how thankful we are for Mr. Mazin.- C.R.
I had the pleasure of hiring Mazin Law for a situation I was going through. Attorney Taylor and Lyle brought me into their family (so to speak) and represented my case until it was dismissed. The care and compassion they showed to their occupation and my case, was second to none. The firm was always available to answer any questions or concerns that I had during this process. They kept me updated with any changes that occurred regarding my case, up till the moment I could breathe a sign of relief, when my case officially was dismissed. I would recommend Mazin Law to anyone, and I could not be happier with my decision to trust the staff with my well being.- Charles S.
The case ended with probation. Lyle is amazing and if there is anything he can do he will.- S.J.
Not afraid to push the boundaries and stand up for his clients rights!- Angela Bajorek; Avvo
As a working professional myself; I really appreciate Mr. Mazin’s tenacity and respect his work ethic.- P.B.
He filed some motion and had my case dropped in a week. He talks fast but he moves even faster.- Laney; Avvo
Always heard great things about Lyle and he did not disappoint. He handled a traffic citation for me and got all points dropped. Thanks again Lyle.- Herman C.
Results speak for themselves and his are innumerable.- T, Pomeroy
