Why have so many Disney employees been arrested in Sex Stings?
Just this week CNN ran a special highlighting the fact that over thirty Disney employees have been arrested in Internet sex stings. The impression given on national television is that the park is crawling with child sex predators. I really wish CNN had focused a little more on the way Sheriff Grady Judd is running the stings. Everyone has seen Grady Judd on television bragging that he is keeping his County safe from pedophiles. The truth is that with the grant from ICAC he is justifying the millions received from the Department of Justice. The task force comprised of various members of the Florida Sheriff’s Association has run numerous stings, many of which originate in Polk, Seminole and Lake County near the Disney park. The sex stings in many instances involve conduct that is clearly entrapment. They are not preventing crime in Polk, they are creating it.
I have been blogging on this for years. It still amazes me how effective the undercover cops are in seducing and enticing unsuspecting me on the Internet. The motive may be true but the way the police implement the stings is in some instances outrageous. The police almost always post ads in adult sites or respond to ads posted in adult sites. The undercover tactics have now been expanded to other smart phone applications. After engaging someone on the Internet or on a smart phone the undercover officers move the discussion to sex. They will then generally do what I call the basic “switch” and have the undercover chatter mention age saying something like “I lied, I am really 14, I hope you are not mad at me”. I have seen chats where the undercover officers actually suggest sex and suggest travel. This is clearly entrapment.
These cases are not totally hopeless. There have now been a number of Court decisions finding that the police conduct constitutes entrapment as a matter of law. A few of the courts have actually dismissed cases before trial.
As a sex crime lawyer, I track the decisions across the State. I have a number of cases working their way through the State and Federal system now and am optimistic about several more Courts making similar finding. If you or a loved one have been arrested in an Internet sex sting or a Florida Child Pornography Internet Sting and need a sex sting lawyer, call me, Peter D. Aiken. There is no charge for a consultation. I will continue to blog and educate the public as to what is really happening.
