Did Law Enforcement Illegally Entrap You?

A common tactic of police investigators who patrol the Internet in search of sexual predators is to pose as young teenage boys or girls. These investigators often go to places on the Internet where young teenagers are likely to interact with strangers. They pretend to be adolescents, often using false photos and using the type of language commonly used by young teenagers.

When someone in a chat room, on Facebook, on Craigslist or in any other online forum invites someone posing as a young teenager to engage in sexual activities, that person may actually be interacting with a law enforcement officer. When the solicitor goes to an appointed location to meet the "teenager," he or she is often shocked to discover police there, who promptly arrest the suspect on charges of sexual solicitation of a minor. Was this the scenario in your case?
