Long Island Sex Crimes Lawyer
All across America, sex crime are on the rise, and the Long Island area is no exception. Because of the sheer number of sex crime reported, the New York District Attorneys are stepping up their pursuit and prosecution of people accused of committing these crimes. One type of sex crime that has seen a major explosion is child pornography. The availability of digital media and the advent of the internet has made it extremely easy for people to produce and distribute child pornography, also known as kiddie porn. The situation has gotten to the point that the FBI has joined in the hunt to pursue people sharing child pornography and bring them to justice.
By working with local district attorneys and using warrants, wiretaps and surveillance, the FBI has successfully arrested hundreds of people suspected in creating and sharing child pornography. Computers and other devices used for storing digital media are often confiscated during searches of a suspect’s belongings. Once in custody, the investigators may comb these devices for evidence to use in building their cases.
