Sting Operation Defense Law Firm
Solicitation of a minor almost always involves sting operations set up by local police or federal authorities. Often, these operations are borderline entrapment, as individuals using their personal computers in their own homes are not aware they are chatting with minors or are enticed to do so, with no criminal intent to solicit. However, claiming entrapment for breaking the law is never a valid defense.
At the Shapiro Law Firm, our Collin County solicitation of a minor defense attorneys have been representing individuals in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex for more than 40 years. If you have been charged with solicitation of a minor, it is important that you seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Time is of the essence, and your defense team will need every advantage available to suppress illegal evidence that has been collected by the police and prosecutors.
What Constitutes Solicitation?
A person does not actually have to appear at a pre-arranged meeting location in order to be charged with solicitation for sex. In fact, you can be charged with solicitation of a minor or Internet solicitation of a minor while sitting at your home computer and participating in a chat room.
