SOLICITATION OF A MINOR Charges
Defense for Solicitation of a Minor in Nebraska
Charges of solicitation of a minor are on the rise in the United States
due to the proliferation of chat rooms and sexually oriented ads on the
Internet. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children,
one in seven children has been solicited for sex online. As a result,
local police and federal agents take these charges very seriously.
Anyone who has been contacted by law enforcement officers concerning a
sex crime involving a minor may need legal representation immediately.
When a law enforcement officer asks a suspect to submit to an interview
concerning a crime such as a solicitation, the purpose of the interview
may be to make an arrest. If the suspect attempts to explain the situation,
he or she may inadvertently provide information that corroborates the
charges and gives the officer probable cause to take the suspect into custody.
