What Is an Internet Sex Crime?

Internet sex crimes often involve online communication of a sexual nature through chat rooms, social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram, or online classifieds sites, such as Craigslist, among other channels. Often, these offenses are illegal because they involve illicit communication with, or exploitation of, a child.

Common internet sex crimes include:

  • Child pornography offenses: Possession and/or distribution of child pornography is a federal offense and a felony. Child pornography is often shared through peer-to-peer networking. “Sexting,” or the exchange of nude photos, may lead to a child pornography charge if you are in possession of pictures of an individual under the age of 18, even though the age of consent is 16 in Georgia.
  • Child enticement or solicitation: Georgia code § 16-6-5 makes it illegal to entice a child for indecent purposes involving molestation or other lewd acts. This crime is usually a felony, and punishable by more than 10 years in prison, up to 30 years. Usually, it is proven by evidence of sexually explicit emails sent back and forth between the adult and a minor. If the adult planned an in-person meeting with the child, penalties increase.
  • Other charges: You may be charged with an internet sex crime for sexual exploitation of a minor, electronically furnishing obscene material to minors and others.
