- Lewd or Lascivious Exhibition over a Computer Online Service

- Traveling to Meet a Minor Facilitated by Parent, Legal Guardian, or Custodian
Internet sex crimes usually involve evidence that is taken from your computer. Experts working for the police department will be able to determine which websites were visited, how long the website was open and what messages were typed.
Defenses in Internet Sex Crime Cases
One defense in a sting-type operation is entrapment. Entrapment means that somebody got you to do something you were not otherwise predisposed to do. You must be able to prove that the conduct occurred as the result of the entrapment.
When more than one person had access to the computer which was used to commit the internet sex crime, it is more difficult for the state to prove who actually was on the computer at the time the crime was committed.
If you are charged with an Internet sex crime, you should never attempt to explain your actions to police. Talking to police will never help your case and could actually take away potential defenses.
