What Were You Thinking? She Said She was 14 Years Old
If you are reading this blog, chances are it is not too late to save yourself. When men are arrested in Internet Sex Stings, SUCH AS OPERATION e-GUARDIAN, as a condition of bail bond they are usually prohibited from going on the Internet and will never see this blog. There are however some of you that may have chatted with an undercover cop and have not yet been arrested. You may or may not have a problem. Have you ever texted or chatted with a girl that says she is 14 or 15 years old? It was probably and undercover police officer. Did the person you chatted with suggest traveling to her house? Did she say her parents were away?
These are all clues that that the person you are chatting with is an undercover police officer. Never have sex with a minor. Ever hear the term “jail bait”. You are signing up for a stiff prison sentence. (No pun intended) The best way to not get arrested is to never, no never interact on the Internet with anyone that says they are underage. The best way to not get caught is to not commit a crime in the first place. There are more police on the Internet than there are real people looking to hookup.
As a sex crime lawyer I can pick out a cop ad from a mile away. Young girls do not have to advertise on the Internet to have sex. There are tons of boys as school dying to get into their pants. Do you really think that any sweet young thing wants an old guy like you? Get wise and get off the Internet.

Is Entrapment a Defense in an Internet Sex Sting case?
As more and more people get arrested and charged with Internet Solicitation of a Minor and traveling to meet a minor, the Courts are presented with this question. The answer is that it all depends on the particular facts of the communications and the arrest. Some courageous judges, fed up with the outrageous police tactics have ruled that in some cases the police conduct actually constitutes “Entrapment” as a matter of law. In two cases in Manatee County cases from Operation Green Shepherd were dismissed by the judge. Also, juries are now being educated as to what the police are actually doing and in a recent case I tried in Sarasota County from Operation Intercept a jury acquitted a young man based on “entrapment”. To win an entrapment case, you have to know how to present it to a Court and most importantly, a jury. Not all criminal defense lawyers are experienced in raising an entrapment defense in an Internet sex sting case.
When you raise the defense of entrapment, you are basically admitting that you committed the offense but establishing that you were induced or persuaded to travel or chat by improper police conduct. The truth is that the police are not catching child predators as they claim in their press releases. The truth is that they are creating crime. The various task forces receive Federal money and are under pressure to make arrests. It is a lot easier for them to create a crime than to detect a crime. Entrapment is a defense to improper police conduct.
How do you prove Entrapment?
For starters, you have to prove that the crime originated in the minds of the police and not your client. Who posted the ad? In what category was it posted? Did the content of the ad contain lies and misstatements? Did the police have to certify they were over 18 to be on the site? Did the ad itself solicit sexual contact? Was the ad misleading? Did the police invite the travel? In the emails and texts, did the police seduce, solicit or suggest sex? Did the police suggest bringing condoms? Did the police send photographs? If the answer to any one of these questions is yes, you may have an entrapment defense. I have been raising entrapment as a defense as a criminal defense lawyer for thirty years. You have to know how to present this defense correctly to have any chance of winning. If you or a loved one has been arrested and you think you may have an entrapment defense, call for a free consultation or simply Google “Peter Aiken” and visit one of my websites or blogs dedicated to sex crime defense.

More Arrests Coming in Tampa Sex Sting
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement ran another Internet sex sting last week October 2013 in Tampa and more arrests are expected over the next few days. They claim they are arresting Internet child sex predators and publicly in their news releases claim that they are protecting children. Nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is that they are creating internet crimes to boost statistics, make arrests and seize vehicles. In this latest sting they intend to arrest people who merely chatted or talked on the phone and did not even travel to meet anyone. There is no end to the length the cops will go to create a crime.
Who is really doing the solicitation and seducing
In reality, it is law enforcement that is in the business of seducing men into talking, chatting, sexting and traveling. The police are still thick on the social media websites like the sex hookup site “Craigslist Casual Encounters”. Most if not all of the people arrested were adults looking for adults. The police will engage someone in chat and then say “I am only 14, I hope that is ok”? If someone on the Internet ever says that, terminate all contact. The simple answer is to avoid trying to hookup on Craigslist Casual Encounters. If the girl even hints she is underage, hang up, walk away, shut up and have no contact whatsoever. If someone responds and says “I don’t have much experience” terminate all contact. The best way to avoid arrest is to not commit a crime. Never travel to meet anyone under 18. Never send a picture of your penis to anyone on the Internet, particularly if they claim to be underage
Is it a cop answering your Ad?
In the past, it was the police posting on Backpage and Craigslist. Now the police are answering adult ads, sucking people in and then doing their bait and switch pretending to be 15 year old girls. Men looking for a prostitute or escort on Backpage now have to worry about being tricked into meeting a minor. FDLE Supervising Agent Chuck McMullen was quoted in the press as saying they are “looking to arrest people who expressed interest in having sex with a child online but did not show up”. The FDLE will arrest you if you even talk or think about it. We now have “thought police” who will arrest you for even thinking about a minor. Keep your thoughts to yourself. Stay off the Internet. As a sex sting lawyer, I have handled dozens of these types of cases. Innocent young men are being tricked into becoming criminals by police determined to make phony arrests to inflate their statistics. Let me hear what you think about this latest sting?

You know who you are if your a little different than all the other guys. Interested in different things, that’s what I’m for. Email me please.
You are dreaming….Do not commit a crime….Do not text with a minor…do not email a minor. Do not even think about texting with a minor…Do not do it.
Do not be tempted by some entrapping ad….You are talking with a cop…
Stay off the dating hookup sites…Do it the old fashioned way….Ask a real woman out.
The Manatee police create criminal cases on the Internet. They do the basic bait and switch.
They get you texting and then when you are roped in say, “ I am only 14, is that a problem”
It is a huge problem…Do not even think about sex with minors.
The truth is that the police create crime on the Internet like in Operation Green Shepherd in Bradenton. Do not become a victim of police entrapment. It will ruin your life.

Is this a cop trolling and trying to set up a sex sting or is it legit? Either way the best thing is to never go on Craigslist trying to hook up, even with an adult. Do not even think of hooking up with an underage person, male or female. The best way to not need a criminal defense attorney is to not commit a crime. Young girls don’t want to hook up with older men. Cops trying to entrap people make a living hooking up with stupid men.
As a criminal defense attorney I can tell you… do not even think of having sex with anyone under 18 years of age. Did you ever hear the term jail bait. The police, ICAC and the Central Florida Task Force out of Polk County run stings every month. Hundreds of men have fallen for this bait. They arrest you. The take and forfeit your car. They ruin your life.
There is a simple answer. Do not have sex with a minor
Do not even think about it. Never talk about it. No! No! No!
