Understanding Cyber Sex Crimes in Minnesota

Internet sex crimes arise from an individual’s private online activity, so there is usually a lengthy investigation process before law enforcement ever issues submit the case for charging. These crimes are also on the rise across the world, which means that prosecutors and FBI agents are extremely diligent about taking action against alleged criminals.

Here are some of the most common internet sex crime charges:

  • Human trafficking: Holding, selling, or bringing a human into the United States into any condition of involuntary servitude (sex slavery).
  • Sex tourism: Visiting a foreign country for the purpose of engaging in any sexual act with a person under 18.
  • Child pornography: Possessing, producing, streaming, or disseminating pornographic images that involve a child under the age of 18 years old.
  • Internet solicitation of a minor: Communicating with a minor under the age of 18 with the intent to solicit sexual images or real-life sexual favors.
  • Internet solicitation of a prostitute: Communicating with a prostitute (real or alleged) with the intent to purchase sexual services.

Because cyber sex crimes often cross multiple state boundaries and violate federal statutes, these cases tend to fall under the jurisdiction of federal courts. However, some internet sex crimes are also violations of specific state statutes and laws. Whether you’re facing federal or state charges (or both), it’s important to hire a criminal defense attorney who can represent you at either level.

Penalties for Computer-Related Sex Offenses

The penalties and sentences for an internet sex crime conviction are incredibly severe, particularly if your case involves minors. If you are convicted of possessing even one single pornographic image of a minor, it can result in prison time and significant fees. In Minnesota, convictions for child pornography, internet solicitation of a minor, and other internet sex crimes against minors can also land you on the Minnesota sex offender registry for a minimum of 10 years.
