It has been about a year since the last Okaloosa sex sting. I would be willing to bet they run one in the near future. Sadly, in the last few stings I looked at, the undercover operations seemed to ensnare young men with mental disabilities. If you are a parent and have a son with a learning deficit, even if he is an adult, you need to monitor his Internet access. Young men with mental disabilities are the low hanging fruit for the police entrapment techniques.

The police also frequently run ads on Craigslist, pretending to be mothers who want someone to teach their daughters about sex.

That is ridiculous. There are no real mothers that would ever do that. No real mother would ever want her child to hook up with an adult. It is a crime for a mother to do that.

It is a crime to hook up with a child.
Do not commit a crime.
Do not participate in a crime.

It should be everyone’s goal to protect children and although the police have good intentions, their tactics leave a lot to be desired.

The real predators know better than to go on Craigslist Casual Encounters, and they know that any ad that even hints or pretends to be a young girl looking for experience, or sex, is really a police sting ad.

The best way to not get arrested is to not commit a crime.

Never, no never, interact with anyone on the Internet that pretends to be 13 or 14 years old. Do not let temptation or curiosity get the best of you. Many lonely men drinking and sitting at home alone get sucked into saying stupid stuff on the Internet.

It is a second degree felony to travel to meet a minor for sex.

It is also a crime to send a penis pic to a minor.

Do not do it. Do not commit a crime.

Some of the recent sex stings also target child pornography.

I recently learned that the FBI actually took over a child porn site and ran it for a while allowing people to get kiddie porn from the site. Federal Courts are now looking into that.

If you are talking to someone on the Internet and they even hint that they are underage, break off contact immediately.

Do not try and be a vigilante. Let the police do their job. Hopefully the police monitor Craigslist and if they see a child there they will do something like contacting her parents. If there is any real mother out there trying to get someone to mentor or teach her child about sex, hopefully, the police will arrest her. The Internet is a dangerous place. We should all do our part to protect children. Parental controls on the computer is a huge first step. As a sex sting lawyer, my goal is to help people prevent crime. Crime prevention is the answer, not the creation of sex predators out of innocent men. Never, no never, email, text, skype or instant message a minor. There are plenty of adult women who want sex. Stick to adults and leave the kids alone. They don’t call it jail bait for nothing.

A couple of weeks ago I predicted there would be another Internet sex sting here in Sarasota.

The police have wised up and now when they run a sex sting they delay making it public and conceal the arrests. If the police were truly interested in preventing crime instead of creating it, they would have a loud and vocal presence on the Internet. They would advertise the fact that they are trolling Meetme.com and Adam4Adam.com and Craigslist casual encounters.

The best way to prevent crime is through education.

They need to let the moms and dads know what their daughters are up to. Parents should be the gatekeepers. The computer with access to the Internet should be in the living room, not in the kid’s bedroom. There should be parental controls. Craigslist has about thirty parental controls they suggest you install. What needs to happen is a media campaign by the Sheriff’ office warning pedophiles to stay off the Internet.

What is really happening is the entrapment of lots of young immature men.

These sex sting cases do more harm than good. It pumps up the arrest statistics and it makes good press but does nothing to truly protect kids. The press releases are totally misinformation.
If the Sarasota Sheriff spent a fraction of what they spend on a sex sting in educating middle school kids, the potential for a real interaction between a child and a predator would be greatly reduced.

These sex stings are totally ineffective.

It makes money for the bondsmen and it gets votes for the Sheriff and the State Attorney but it does absolutely nothing when it comes to preventing sex crimes in Sarasota. My heart goes out to the families of the men arrested in this latest Sarasota sex sting.

The men will lose their jobs.

Most will have high bonds set.

They will be facing the possibility of State prison as well as sex offender registration.

Personally, as a sex crime lawyer, a former prosecutor myself, and as a veteran criminal defense attorney, I thing that true prevention is the answer. We should have learned something from the war on drugs. The police still don’t get it.

Education, not Entrapment is the solution.

I have been involved is over three dozen sex sting defenses. Some of these cases can be beaten. They can be won in front of a jury. The public is finally getting wise to what the police are really doing.
