Online Solicitation of a Minor
Orlando Sex Crime Attorney
Law enforcement agencies actively seek out individuals to charge with crimes related to the solicitation of a minor. In our state, there are three task forces given the responsibility of conducting sting operations to expose child solicitors. Such operations usually involve undercover officers posing as minors in chat rooms or on Backpage or Craigslist, as well as on social networking sites like MySpace, Facebook, or Twitter.

Entrapment in Online Child Solicitation Cases
A primary issue that needs to be addressed in most online child solicitation cases is whether or not entrapment was utilized in order to bring about an arrest. In this context, entrapment involves police offers, such as those posing as minors on the Internet, inducing a person to commit a crime that they would have been very unlikely to commit in any other circumstance. If entrapment can be proven in a solicitation case, it will typically result in the charges being thrown out.
