Arguably the most controversial subject matter, when it comes to internet crime, is the exploitation of minors or child pornography. Sadly, underage online users are vulnerable, and not always able to detect when they are receiving attention from an undesirable source. Naturally, the laws that are in place are put there in order to offer protection of the young and innocent.
We all know that the internet offers a veritable world of prospects and a hitherto unknown method of worldwide communication. But it, just like any actual community, is at risk of misuse. There are laws in the bricks and mortar world specifically devised for the protection of the innocent. By necessity the internet has the same sort of laws, although some see the online network as one that is ungovernable. Sometimes the ins and outs of how the law has impact on the cyber world leaves some in confusion about their rights – and despite there being legal guidelines and etiquettes they remain unclear about the sort of help that is available to them if they have been accused of such a crime, or the victim of one.
On the other hand, adults can be just as vulnerable online as the young so if you or someone you know is affected by such circumstances and you live in the Seattle area you’d be well advized to seek the assistance of a Seattle Lawyer who is au fait with the ins and outs of the law concerning such crimes.
For example, where someone has been accused of being in possession of illegal images the path they must then travel can be a long and harrowing one. As you would expect, there’s a huge stigma involved when a person is associated with a crime that involves the wrongful exploitation of children. Washington State has laws in place regarding protection of children, what’s more, the FBI’s Innocent Images National Initiative plays a paramount role when it comes to strict government of the use of what is termed inappropriate pornographic material concerning minors. These laws are stringent.
