Internet sex crimes encompass various types of criminal charges including the following:
- Manufacture of child pornography for use on the Internet
- Distribution of child pornography online
- Soliciting a minor for the purpose of sexual exploitation through online chat rooms, Craigslist or other venues on the Internet or via cell phone texting
If you were allegedly soliciting a minor across state lines or across the international Texas-Mexico border, your criminal charges can be prosecuted in federal court as well as in state courts. Double jeopardy prohibitions do not apply when there are charges brought be separate sovereign government bodies. You may be simultaneously charged in Texas courts, in Louisiana courts and in federal courts, for example.
