Soliciting a Child for Unlawful Sexual Conduct in Florida

Have You Been Caught in a Sex With a Minor Sting Operation?

Law enforcement actively seeks out people to charge with soliciting sex with a minor. In Florida alone, there are three task forces charged with conducting sting operations. These operations typically involve undercover police officers misrepresenting themselves as underage boys and girls on Backpage or Craigslist, as well as Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and other social networks, as well as various chat rooms, tend to be the online locations for these sting operations.

Is This Entrapment?

One of the issues that always needs to be explored in these cases is whether the accused was entrapped by police officers. Entrapment is when police officers, such as those posing as minors in chat rooms and elsewhere online, induce a person to commit a crime that the person would have been unlikely to commit otherwise. This is a legitimate concern in cases of soliciting sex with a minor, and often a strong defense strategy.
