If you’ve been accused of an Internet sex crime, make no mistake, you need a criminal defense attorney with plenty of experience in this specialized area of law. Further, you need an attorney and a law firm respected by prosecutors as a determined adversary.
Zukerman attorneys have defended many people charged with online solicitation of a minor and similar Internet sex offenses, and we have a long track record of achieving optimal results for our clients. We understand the technology involved, and we know how to look for potential weaknesses in the government's case and pinpoint the best strategy to defend against these charges.
Frequently in cases involving child pornography or online solicitation of a minor there are complex search and seizure issues, and overzealous police and prosecutors often misstep. For instance, one inaccuracy on a warrant or affidavit can destroy the prosecution's case.
If you are convicted of an Internet sex crime, we will work with you to present the best possible case in order to mitigate the sentencing. Depending on the facts of your case, we will present evidence and construct an articulate argument to convince the judge that you are not a pedophile or a threat to children, that this was an isolated incident, and that your otherwise clean record should be taken into account.
Perhaps it is human nature to want to judge a person’s character in black and white terms. At Zukerman, we know better – each person is a million shades of gray; and we will fight passionately to prevent you from being cruelly tagged with a potentially lifelong stigma of “sex offender”. However this charge came to be made against you, we will bring all our expertise to bear on your case in order to win back your freedom and good name.
