The Criminal Consequences of Internet Crimes

Under state laws, using the Internet to solicit a minor is serious offense. This includes any type of online contact with the intention of engaging in a sexual act. It is also illegal to use the Internet to distribute and possess child pornography. Internet fraud can include crimes such as phishing, which involves the sending of emails from supposedly legitimate companies in order to acquire personal and financial information for criminal purposes.
