DEFENDING CHARGES RELATING TO THE SOLICITATION OF A MINOR
Almost anyone who has turned on a television set, picked up a newspaper, or browsed an Internet news site is aware of the hysterical atmosphere the media has created surrounding online solicitation of minors. As a result, with just a hint of accusation, the rumor mill can start to churn, destroying life as you once knew it.
State and federal law enforcement are cracking down on solicitation of minors via the internet. Thanks to their seemingly endless resources and manpower, more and more supposed "predators" are being apprehended and charged.

WHAT IS SOLICITATION OF A MINOR?
Online solicitation of a minor occurs when an adult (someone 18 years of age or older), uses a computer to attempt to solicit, lure, or entice someone under the age of 18 to commit a sexual act. The attempt does not have to be successful in order to be a crime.
SAFEGUARDING YOUR RIGHT TO PRIVACY
Criminal charges relating to the solicitation of a minor are very serious. However, conviction and incarceration are not the only worries. These charges ruin lives, careers and families. The societal stigma surrounding them can become unbearable if not properly contained.
