Online Solicitation of a Minor Archives

Social media used in alleged solicitation of a minor

Police investigators may search the Internet where discussions of sexual activity are taking place. Officers pose as teenagers and interact with strangers. A person interacting with others in the chat room may make a date with the person believed to be a teenager. When the stranger arrives at the designated meeting place, instead of meeting the expected teenager, the suspect is surprised by police officers. The officers might then arrest the suspect, who could be charged with the crime of online solicitation of a minor.
