With the increased use of the Internet, the government has gotten tougher on Internet sex crimes. More and more resources are being dedicated to catching and prosecuting people under Internet sex crime allegations. In our state, the Michigan State Police Computer Crimes Unit (CCU) is a special police unit dedicated to investigating Internet crimes, including Internet sex crimes. The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) uses federal funding to investigate alleged perpetrators of Internet sex crimes.
People who have been accused of internet sex crimes, by these state agencies or by the federal government, should seek the help of an experienced attorney. At Garton & Vogt, P.C., we can help. We have 20 years of criminal defense experience and are well-prepared to handle even the most serious charges.
