Michigan Sexting, Solicitation, and Child Pornography Defense Attorney

Solicitation of a Minor in Muskegon

In the state of Michigan, it is illegal to accost, entice, or solicit a child under the age of 16 to commit an immoral act, including any sex act or sexual intercourse. Because the age of consent in Michigan is 16, even if the alleged act is agreed to by the alleged victim or taking place between two minors, solicitation charges can result.

Soliciting a minor is a felony charge and conviction could lead to up to 4 years in prison, and a fine of up to $4,000. Soliciting a child in a chat room, via a social network, through text messaging or email, or any other means can lead to felony solicitation charges, and it is critical to contact an attorney right away if you have been accused of internet solicitation in Muskegon.

Child Pornography Charges and Sexting Charges

Many other internet sex offenses can lead to extremely serious child pornography charges, especially since no specific legislation exists regarding sexting, sexual exchanges between minors, or transmission of images of persons under the age of 16 through other electronic means.

If convicted of child pornography possession, a person will face a felony criminal record, up to 4 years behind bars, and a fine of up to $10,000. If that person is accused of enticing or coercing a minor to create pornographic materials, or has allegedly distributed the materials, these potential penalties could be greatly enhanced.

Cases involving the transmission of photos or videos over email, text message, social media, or any other means can result in child pornography charges, as long as the alleged victim is under the age of 18. Anyone facing a child pornography investigation or arrest should immediately contact our experienced legal team, so that we can begin fighting to protect you from harsh penalties.

Indecent Exposure and Other Internet Sex Crimes

There are many other sex crimes which can occur over the internet, and throughout Muskegon County and the state of Michigan, the charges and penalties that result are usually the same as they would be had the exchange occurred in person. Judges don’t go easy on offenders just because their actions occurred over the internet, and it is just as important to protect yourself against conviction, because jail time, fines, and sex offender registration are all on the line.
