Crimes Against Children Division

According to the Department of Justice, one in five children per year receives an unwanted sexual solicitation online. One in thirty-three children per year receives an aggressive sexual solicitation. At any given moment, there are 50,000 predators on the Internet actively seeking out children.

Each year in the United States, over 4 million cases of child physical abuse and over 80,000 cases of child sexual abuse are reported to law enforcement.

The Crimes Against Children Division is a specialized unit dedicated to prosecuting cases involving children such as: child physical and sexual abuse, child pornography, child exploitation, human trafficking, kidnapping, child pornography, internet crimes, and other crimes affecting our children.

Crimes involving children are sensitive in nature and the prosecutors in the Division receive specialized training and work closely with the Children’s Advocacy Center, to safely shepherd the child victim and the victim’s family, through the judicial process. The ultimate goal of the Division is to seek justice and provide the best possible outcome for the victim and the victim’s family.
