Indecent Material to Minors Treatment in NYC
Counseling for Sending Indecent Materials
I have helped many men who have sent pornographic images to minors. Some receiving these images were actual minors, while others were adults posing as minors. A portion of those men I helped also asked those real or pretend minors for in-person sexual contact.
The men who have sent pornographic images to minors did NOT do so because they got confused, were drunk, or had a bad idea. Any person acting out this harmful to children and simultaneously very self destructive act is doing so because they have a disorder.
Many offenders I’ve seen, after being arrested for for this behavior, have the illusion that “The System” is the biggest threat to their liberty. This is not true. “The System” did not tell them untruths in order to get them to offend and potentially harm others and damage their own life. It is their disorder, alone, that lied to them. It is their disorder that had them ignore many simple realities they already knew. The disorder that they have is absolutely intent on making further consequences for them, and it is my, and my client’s, role to see that the disorder does not succeed.
Disseminating Indecent Material to Minors, First and Second Degree
I am not an attorney, but my lay opinion is, if one communicates with a minor via a computer, either by sending pornography, or by texting the minor in sexual “chat”, they are guilty of Disseminating Indecent Material to Minors in the Second Degree, if that person also solicits that child for an in person sexual contact, they are instead guilty of Disseminating Indecent Material to Minors in the First Degree.
