Internet sex crimes have been on the rise over the past decade and law enforcement officers have responded. Local, state, and federal law enforcement officers now aggressively investigate people suspected of internet sex crimes.
If you have been arrested for a sex crime, contact the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., in Orlando, Florida. If you have been questioned by the police, contact us immediately to avoid saying anything that could damage your case.
If you are a suspect in an ongoing sex crime investigation, it is important that you understand that the police are trying to build a case against you. Anything you say to a law enforcement officer could potentially be used against you.
Recent case law suggests that the police may make misleading statements to suspects to obtain a conviction. For example, the police may lie to you about the age of legal consent. Another law enforcement tactic is to allege forcible rape in the hope that a suspect admits to the crime of statutory rape (consensual sex with a minor). Some defendants have made what amounts to a full confession without even knowing it.
If convicted of a sex crime, you face significant criminal and civil penalties. Depending on the nature of your charges, you could be facing the possibility of a mandatory prison sentence, court-ordered sex offender treatment and registration as a sex offender. With so much at stake, you need a strong advocate who will aggressively defend your rights.
