Protect Your

Freedom Reputation Job Rights

If you have been charged with an Internet crime, your reputation and freedom are at stake. An Internet sex crime conviction carries a severe penalty and requires registering as a sex offender which severely limits where you are allowed to live and work.

Internet sex crime investigations are carried out by numerous federal and state law enforcement agencies. A common law enforcement method is for a law enforcement agent or officer to pose as a minor on a site such as Craig’s list, arrange for a sexual meeting, and once the target of their investigation arrives at the meeting place, arrest the person and charge him with any number of offenses such as computer pornography, criminal attempt to commit aggravated child molestation, criminal attempt to commit aggravated sexual battery, criminal attempt to commit child molestation, etc. In a case such as the one described herein, there is a “virtual victim”. Georgia law does not require a real, live victim to exist in this type of prosecution, merely that the accused believed the “victim” was a child.

Another common law enforcement method is for an agent or officer to visit a file sharing site and obtain the IP addresses of persons viewing pornographic images of minors. Armed with this information, the agent or officer is able to determine the user of the IP address and where the person lives, obtain a search warrant for the computers, hard drives, etc. in the person’s possession and arrest the person.

In a federal prosecution for computer pornography, Title 18 United States Code Section 2252A (a) (2) makes it illegal to knowingly receive or distribute any child pornography. In a federal prosecution for this offense, a person faces a penalty of 5 to 20 years imprisonment, is subject to the sex offender requirements of the state in which they reside as well as the reporting requirements set forth in the Federal Sex Offender and Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).

    Mr. Manciagli has done so much in so little time. In less than one month he was able to contact the courts and got me early termination for my supervised release. I am so grateful, he works fast and always stayed in contact with me. I highly recommend my attorney to everyone I am very satisfied with Mr. Manciagli. Very grateful to him for all he has done since the day I met him. He's just the best.


    Mr. Manciagli has lived and traveled all over the world, including Latin America, and his legal work has taken him to Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, and Jamaica. It was important for me, as a foreigner in the U.S., to have an attorney who understood me from a cultural level and who I could speak to in Spanish. If you or a loved one needs a criminal defense attorney, Jeff Manciagli is the attorney you should call.


    Jeff was recommended by a friend. I am very pleased with the way my case was handled & the outcome was very satisfactory. I would recommend him.


    Entered into a drug case (1/2 oz of molly & 1g. of marijuana)..... I have 3+ felonies....Jeff got me 6 months house arrest & probation.....definite prison time without him.......reasonable priced....Thanks Jeff.


    My lawyer in FL recommended Jeff when I got arrested in GA and didn't know what to do. I got pulled over in a cash-cow speed trap town 20 miles above the state line and they called a K-9 unit and got probable cause to search my car. I was livid and felt so violated. Luckily I hired the best of the best. Jeff always called/emailed me back promptly when I had questions about my case, and Always spoke to me as an equal. He took care of everything and when it came time to go to court was honest and logical in discussing what was best and how my plea would affect my future. Under his council I felt calm and in control. I was facing 3 misdemeanor charges and got them all dropped on the condition that I do a small amount of community service, pay a fine, and don't get in any more trouble for a few months. I didn't even get points on my license for the original speeding ticket. At the end of the day, money is replaceable- my time and freedom are not. If I or anyone I know ever has trouble in GA again, I will be calling Jeff.
