Another Internet Sex Sting in Boynton Beach Florida
A sixty four year old retired educator was arrested in Palm Beach County by the Boynton Beach police and charged with a number of Internet sex offenses. The police claim he was chatting with and undercover cop posing as a fifteen year old boy. They claim that the chats had been going on for quite a while culminating in a meeting and arrest.
The problem with the Internet is that you cannot believe anything you see or read. Half the time the person you are chatting with is not real or not who they claim to be. You have adult men pretending to be younger. You have You have adult men pretending to be younger. You cannot believe photographs or pics that are sent. There is no way to tell what is real and what is not. Often men are lured to a meeting and when they show up they are arrested. Curiosity killed the cat. Just showing up does not mean you actually intended to engage in sex. When it comes to “sexting”, the photographs may or not be real and may or may not be photos of the person actually sending them. I once represented a man who was depicted lying on the beach with a large flesh colored rubber penis hanging out of his bathing suit. In a photograph it would appear to be real, but in reality, it was a fake.

As it becomes harder are harder for the police to set up stings on heterosexual men, they have begun to target gay men on Adam4Adam, Backpage.com, Badoo.com and Meetme.com. The internet tasks forces are now moving into the less known gay dating sites. The internet tasks forces are now moving into the less known gay dating sites. Each case is different but generally the core issue is “who is doing the seducing”. Who is doing the “luring and enticing”. Some of these cases have valid defenses. Did the undercover officer ask for a dirty “pic”? Did the police solicit the sexual conduct or content.
