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 benefit from representation. 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.
