TRAVELING TO MEET A MINOR CHARGES IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA

Call Anytime for Representation You Can Count On

Under Florida law, it is illegal to use the Internet to make arrangements to travel to a pre-appointed place to engage in planned sexual activity with anyone under the age of 18. Police are notorious for establishing Internet sting operations in which they set up phony chat rooms and send out messages of a solicitous nature - often acting the part of a minor in order to entice participants to meet at a location for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity.

In certain situations, sting operations established for the purpose of enticing a law-abiding person into conducting an illegal act such as traveling to meet a minor for sex are a form of entrapment. If you have been charged with traveling to meet a minor, solicitation of a minor using the Internet, or other sex crimes involving the Internet in Central Florida, talk to an attorney at the criminal defense law firm of Michael J. Snure, P.A., in Winter Park.

As board certified criminal law specialists, we know the strategies police and prosecutors use to build a case against a person accused of a sexual crime. We understand the underlying issues of entrapment and what evidence and strategies cannot be lawfully used against you to seek a conviction.

Successful defense strategies can include investigating:

  • The language the police used to entice you into traveling to meet the other person
  • The suggested age of the other person in the chat room
  • The solicitous nature of the initial contact made in the chat room
  • Whether the police can prove you were the person actually involved in the Internet chat or message
  • Whether a polygraph (lie detector) test can prove your innocence
  • Whether you have a criminal history or arrest record of sexual offenses
