Albany Computer Sex Crime Defense Attorney
What is Considered a Computer Crime in NY?
There are many kinds of internet sex crimes which have been outlined according to both federal laws and state laws in New York. Even though people normally associate a “sexual crime” as one involving outright violence, such as rape or sexual battery, cybercrimes constitute a massive percentage of sexual offenses, including the many cases where sexual digital content appeared by accident on an unsuspecting defendant’s screen.
Just some examples of the most common kinds of internet sex crimes include those involving:
- The possession of child pornography – According to the New York Penal Code §§ 263.16, 263.11, no person may possess media of a sexual or obscene performance of a child. Such media does not merely include physical copies but any digital representation as well.
- Luring a child – This Class E felony does not merely refer to get a minor to enter a car or building, nor is it excluded to persuading a child to engage in sexual acts, incest, or prostitution. Exploiting a child by engaging them online, with the intent of kidnapping, injuring, or sexually violating them is also included under this kind of felony.
- Prostitution – If a person pays for a sexual activity, this is defined as prostitution, and is classified as a Class A misdemeanor according to the New York Penal Code § 230.00. The offense becomes a cyber sex crime violation if either sexual arrangements or the financial payments were themselves made online.
When you have been charged with an online sex crime or possessing any digital media related to child pornography or other sexual offenses, it is of the essence that you receive advocacy from lawyers who actually are knowledgeable about the technological issues entangled in your case. While it is crucial to have attorneys who know the standard law in regard to sex crimes, sexual offenses which involve computers and the internet are much more complicated.
