The decision to hire the right attorney is critical as the potential loss of liberty and the possibility of registration as a sex offender is always a major consideration with Internet sex crimes and chat room cases.
Internet sex offenses are serious felonies that carry severe penalties, which may include sex offender registration and lengthy prison time.
A good rule of thumb is if you are in an Internet chat room or social networking site, do not send any images or engage in any questionable conversations unless you have personal knowledge of the other individual's identity and that they are at least 18 years of age.
Remember the person you are chatting with could be an undercover police officer posing as a minor.
Over the last several years, prosecutions have increased significantly of individuals who use a computer in the privacy of their own homes for committing alleged Internet sex crimes.
By engaging in Internet "stings" in chat rooms and on social networking sites, law enforcement agencies attempt to lure otherwise law abiding individuals into inappropriate conversations with a purported "minor." These contacts often form the basis of an accosting and/or solicitation of a minor offense.
then you can see his/her photo and after that you will be able to Videochat.
