Law Enforcement Investigations into Internet Luring of a Child
Local police and other law enforcement agencies are aggressively cracking down on internet sex crimes involving children. In some cases, they will set up sting operations where an officer will pose as a minor and begin to develop online relationships with suspected pedophiles. The goal is to lead the suspect on to the point where he or she will commit a crime, whether by attempting to meet with the "minor" for sex or requesting that the "minor" expose his or her intimate parts for a video chat or photograph.
In many areas of the state, the office of the district attorney will assign a specialized prosecutor who is charged with the special purpose of seeking conviction on crimes of internet luring, enticement and sexual exploitation of a child. These prosecutors have an exhaustive understanding of the applicable laws, and you owe it to yourself to find a defense lawyer who knows the subject just as well as they do.
Whether you have already been arrested and admitted to the charges or have been contacted by investigators, make it your next action to contact our office for a confidential consultation so that we can get started on a plan of action for you.
