What Is Online Solicitation Of A Child?
Online solicitation of a child, or child enticement, occurs when an adult uses dating apps, chat rooms or other online platforms to lure a person under the age of 16 into having sexual contact. No sexual act or contact of any kind actually has to take place for authorities to charge the crime. As long as there was an act of enticement with the intent of committing a sexual act, the crime is considered to have occurred. Determining intent is a murky endeavor, however, and oftentimes misunderstandings and perfectly innocent online conversations result in potentially life-ruining consequences.
This is why it is so important to fight this charge as aggressively as you can. With an experienced sex crimes defense lawyer on your side, you can give yourself the best possible chance of avoiding prison time, mandatory sex offender registration and other consequences of a conviction.
