Atlantic City Internet Sex Crimes Lawyer Defending Clients in Atlantic & Cape May County


In response to the rapid growth of the Internet, police departments in New Jersey have devoted increasing resources to collecting evidence of alleged sex crimes online. If you have been charged with an Internet sex crime, you need an aggressive attorney on your side. I am John W. Tumelty, an Atlantic City Internet sex crimes lawyer serving clients throughout South Jersey. If you are facing sex crime charges based on evidence collected online, call me today at 609-390-4600  for a free initial consultation.

Carefully Investigating the Prosecutors’ Evidence Against You

If you are convicted of a sex offense, you could be facing serious consequences, including jail time, a criminal record and lifetime sex offender registration. The following are some of the most common sex crime charges prosecuted based on evidence collected on the Internet:

  • Possession and distribution of child pornography: This is by far the most common Internet sex crime charge. You may face these charges if child pornography is found on your computer or at an online storage or file-sharing site under your control.
  • Solicitation and promotion of prostitution: The police also frequently prosecute people for alleged prostitution offenses conducted over the Internet.
  • Solicitation of minors: The use of the Internet by adults to initiate sexual relationships and encounters with minors is the most high-profile online sex crime. Police and prosecutors can be very aggressive at pursuing these cases.

If you hire me to represent you, I will immediately begin investigating all of your defense options. Was the evidence against you collected through an illegal search? Can the police prove that you were the one using a computer on which illegal materials were found?

To discuss your case with an attorney who is prepared to address these questions and more in order to ensure that your constitutional rights are protected and you get a fair trial,  contact my office today at 609-390-4600.
