The Internet sometimes seems like an alternate reality — one where the rules don't apply or where they're not so clear. It can be tempting to say things and act in ways you wouldn't in person. What's more, the boundaries between legal and criminal aren't always straightforward. With law enforcement cracking down on Internet crimes, those who cross the blurry lines of Internet sex crimes can find themselves in serious trouble.
It's no wonder that people in your shoes are often shocked to learn they're facing criminal charges. At Shaffer & Engle Law Offices, LLC, we understand your feelings of surprise, worry, fear and shame. Our lawyers will apply 65-plus years of experience to defend you against charges such as:
