Internet Stings by Law Enforcement
Riverside Sex Crime Lawyer
With mounting sexual crimes being committed on the internet, law enforcement
has begun consistent efforts to investigate internet sex crimes through
the use of entrapment and stings. Since much of this type of crime can
cross state lines, it is often investigated by federal agencies, resulting
in an investigation that is usually thorough and that has taken some time
to develop. If you find yourself charged with a
sex crime due to an internet sting, contacting a Riverside criminal defense lawyer
immediately is vital to the outcome of your case.
Internet stings have become common throughout the state. They are normally
staged by law enforcement, posing as underage minors seeking a relationship
or friendship which escalates into something more sexual in nature. The
police entrap a person into meeting with the supposed "underage minor",
at which time an arrest is made for attempted sex with a minor. Other
charges can include
pornographic pictures depicting minors being sent over the internet as well as charges of cyber sex.
It is easy to be caught up in a web of lies established by a sting operation.
Grech & Packer understand the confusion and fear that an allegation
such as this can bring. That is why we are dedicated to helping our clients
sort the matter out and get to the legalities of the sting operation.
