Over the past decade, the popularity of social media has resulted in a significant increase of internet-related crimes. Common crimes typically involve people posting inappropriate photos and videos online and internet solicitation. A Virginia Beach woman is now facing multiple misdemeanor charges after posting sexually explicit photos of another woman without her consent.

The woman allegedly posted two photos of the victim engaging in sexual acts with an ex-boyfriend. The woman also apparently sent the photos to men on Facebook along with the victim's name and phone number and a message saying that the victim would perform sexual acts for money. The woman has denied having any knowledge of these posts.

However, she faces charges of unlawful filming, disseminating photos with intent to harass, and possession of obscene material. She is now out on bond and will return to court in late November.

Misdemeanor and felony sex crimes can result in serious consequences including jail time. In addition to criminal penalties, you may also get suspended or expelled from school or lose your job. Your reputation in the community may also be in jeopardy, making it impossible for you to find employment, buy property or move forward with your life.

If you are facing criminal charges, it is beneficial for you to seek the help of a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. Your attorney may try to dispute the prosecutor's arguments and prove that you are not guilty of the crimes you are accused of. In certain cases, your attorney may advise you to agree to a plea deal for a lighter sentence. No matter what your circumstances are, an attorney can help you determine what is best for you and your family.
