We Investigate the Case Against You
The Utah criminal charge enticing a minor over the internet is often commonly referred to as online/Internet solicitation of a minor. You may be charged with this crime if law enforcement suspects that you used the Internet or text messages to lure a child under age 18 into sexual activity. Internet and smartphone use of e-mail, chat rooms, social media and websites such as craigslist or child pornography sites, as well as mobile device versions of such websites, may be considered wire fraud. This is a federal charge that may be added to the solicitation charges.
A conviction for enticing a minor over the Internet may include penalties such as a multiyear prison sentence, as well as sex offender registration nationally and on Utah’s sex and kidnap offender notification and registration (SONAR). The penalties vary depending on the specifics of the case and whether the individual has prior sexual offense convictions.
In these cases, the police may use questionable tactics to identify suspects and make arrests. Stings and undercover operations are common. We will investigate the police procedure to determine whether your rights were violated.
