Delaware Internet Sex Crimes Lawyers
In Delaware, common Internet sex crimes include the online solicitation of a minor, possession of child pornography, arranging sexual encounters with a minor online, and distributing lewd or obscene material over email. Many are caught in stings set up by law enforcement task forces in which an officer poses as a child online and initiates contact with a suspected offender.

Effective Representation Without Judgment
At Rahaim & Saints, our only concern is that you receive a fair trial. Prosecution of any sex offense is an emotionally fraught affair. Too often, these emotions prevent the accused party from getting their side of the story heard. If a case attracts a lot of public attention and outrage, this can be even more difficult.
When it comes to Internet sex crimes, guilt and punishment should be determined by the Delaware legal system, not the court of public opinion. Rahaim & Saints will work to provide representation that gets the truth out and protects your best interests.
Consequences of a Conviction
To anyone facing an embarrassing public trial for an Internet sex offense, it may be hard to imagine things getting any worse. However, a conviction of a sex offense against a minor has serious consequences that will last long after your case has exited the public consciousness. These can include jail time, major fines, probation and a permanent mark on your criminal record.
You may also be required to register with the Delaware Sex Offender Registry, making your living arrangements and other personal information available to law enforcement officers at all times. You will be assigned a tier level indicating the level of risk you pose to the public:
- Tier one offenders are considered low risk and can petition to have their name removed after 10 years.
- Tier three offenders are the highest risk. Their presence is reported to all neighbors as well as any schools or daycare centers in the area they work, live or go to school in.
