Here we are in late February 2017 and so far this year there has been no sex sting in Manatee and Sarasota area.

In light of the fact that Polk County just ran a sting with forty two arrests you can expect that the Sheriff in Manatee and the Sheriff in Sarasota will soon follow suit. We usually see sex sting cases right around Valentine’s day so we are a week overdue for another sting here. In the Polk sting, the Sheriff’s office focused on child pornography with great success.

I cannot impress upon you too much how terrible the penalties are, particularly here in Sarasota County.

The State is enhancing all the third degree felonies to second degree charges and running the guidelines through the roof when it comes to State prison time.

The best way to not get arrested is to stay away from the peer to peer sharing programs and more importantly, never, no never download or view kiddie porn. You can end up doing more time for looking at a video of a thirteen year old than actually having sex with a 13 year old. The State attorney in Manatee and Sarasota has a scorched earth policy and files dozens of charges running the Florida sentencing guidelines up to thirty to fifty years, for just viewing a video. If you are on the Internet and anyone ever asks you to send child pornography to them, do not do it. In the sex stings, the cops will engage a person in chat and then suggest an exchange of child pornography. Never do that. Nothing good comes of ever viewing an underage person engaged in sex. Most of the time, you will end up in prison for letting curiosity get the best of you.

There is a scam running now on the Internet.

If you are on PlentyOfish.com or Craigslist.com a woman claiming at first to be an adult will get you to exchange dirty pics. She will send you a sexually explicit vagina pic and ask you to send her a dick pic. When you do fall for this, you will get a later text, email or call from someone pretending to be a detective. The “detective” will tell you that you have been communicating with a minor and offer you a “diversion” program for a fee. This is a money hustle and a scam.
As a sex crime criminal defense lawyer I get calls almost every week from men who have been contacted by someone pretending to be a cop. Real cops do not do that so if you get a call like that, terminate the call and block future texts emails and calls from that person.

If you have a loved one that has been arrested in one of the sex stings and want to talk about alternatives, you can call me in my Sarasota office at 941 366 3506

February 7 2017

It is that time of year again.

Valentines is only days away and in the past, this has been the time of year the police run their Internet sex stings.

They are doing things a little different now. In the past, they stalked Craigslist casual encounters. Since the arrests have been falling off, they now are actually contacting people on the phone applications and dating sites. PlentOfish.com is one of the prime targets. Even if a person posts as an adult looking for an adult, the police try and pull the bait and switch. My advice is to totally avoid the Internet dating sites. Nothing on the Internet is true. Everyone lies about who they are, what they want and in particular, their age. Men pretend to be women. Women pretend to be something other than what they are. Cops pretend to be a legit date.

If anyone even ever remotely suggests they are underage, flag their ad or post and walk away. Everyone should to their part to keep kids off the Internet and flagging someone that claims they are a minor is a good start. Never, no never chat or text with anyone claiming to be 13 or 14 years old. Never, no never send a penis pic to anyone. Your penis isn’t that pretty and you run the risk of getting scammed or arrested. Nothing good comes of seeing your penis on the Internet, ever. If you are straight, chances are you are actually texting or emailing with a gay guy, not some woman or girl. If you are gay, you are likely being targeted by the cops and they will try and trick you into traveling to meet a minor. The best way to not get arrested for Internet solicitation is to simply not chat with anyone absent proof of age. Everyone lies about age. Demand to see a photo ID before meeting with anyone. The Internet is a dangerous place and men are getting robbed, shot and killed showing up to meet what they think are prostitutes.

Nothing is real on the Internet….Nothing.

When the cops lie on the Internet, there is no consequence.

If you lie, your lie can get you arrested.

If you chat with a minor, even if you are lying, you put yourself at risk.
