A 39-year-old man from Colorado Springs has been arrested and charged with online child pornography, according to this news report. He was arrested after detectives apparently caught him acting inappropriately with someone he believed to be an underage girl online. Detectives say the chats between the man and the “girl” became sexual in nature. He faces three counts of internet sexual exploitation of a child and six counts of promotion of obscenity to a minor.
More and more law enforcement agencies – be it local or federal – are getting extremely aggressive when it comes to Internet child pornography and sex crime cases. The consequences of being arrested on suspicion of a sex crime can be devastating. Even if you are not eventually convicted, when you are accused of committing a sex crime, it tarnishes your reputation.
If convicted, there are even more serious consequences to be dealt with such as jail time, hefty penalties and the possibility of having to register as a sex offender. These are consequences that can have a devastating effect on your personal and professional life.
