Understand the penalties you face.

Depending on what you are alleged to have done you face serious consequences. If you are charged with pandering obscenity you could face all the way up to eight years in prison and being registered as a sex offender for the rest of your life. If you are accused of attempting to meet with a minor you could face charges of attempted rape and attempted kidnapping - which could land you in prison for decades. As you can see the potential consequences are huge, you need to speak to a lawyer that represents people charged with these types of crimes.
