Internet Offences

The involvement of the internet in criminal offences is becoming more and more frequent. I am experienced in serious matters involving telecommunications offences,

  • using the internet to ‘groom’ persons under 16 years of age for sexual activity
  • using a service to procure a child under 16 for a sexual act
  • using the internet, such as social media sites, to harass or menace
  • using the internet to access or possess child pornography (see my article on possession of child pornography).

I appear, and, when necessary I brief experienced senior and junior counsel in respect of these matters.

I also have experience in cases involving online dating websites in respect of stand alone charges such as ‘procuring sexual penetration by fraud’ under the Victorian Crimes Act, or as part of ancillary proceedings (such as family violence or personal safety intervention order matters).

If you are facing any problems regarding this issue, or are just generally apprehensive about going to court, you should feel free to ring Brendan Wilkinson on 0438-670-198  or email
