I can’t tell you how many times I have heard that statement in reviewing the emails, texts and calls in Internet Sting cases.  As  a Sarasota criminal defense lawyer I have handled sex sting cases in Sarasota, Manatee, Polk, Seminole and Lee Counties.  For some reason, people have the mistaken belief that if they ask someone if they are a cop, the undercover cop has to tell the truth.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  The police acting in an undercover capacity absolutely can lie.  I see this in drug trafficking cases, traveling to meet a minor cases and Internet solicitation cases.  In almost every sex sting case I handle, I see over and over the same thing in the chat strings.  Why do people believe they have to tell the truth?  Who knows?

The police regularly do all kinds of things to trick people into solicitation cases and traveling cases.  They send suggestive pictures.  They invite people over with sexy chats and emails.  They tell them to bring condoms.  They tell them to bring drugs.  This is how they catch people.  In many of the cases, it absolutely in entrapment but it takes a skilled experienced attorney to develop the evidence and get the case dismissed on win it in a jury trial.  The big problem is most people do not have the money to hire a good experienced criminal lawyer.  In most of the traveling cases, the State as a part of a plea offer wants at least 42 months in prison followed by sex offender registration and sex offender probation.  A sentence like that will ruin your life forever.  If a loved one has been busted in one of the operations like Green Shepherd in Bradenton or Operation Intercept in Sarasota and their case is still pending be sure they have real adequate representation.  Unfortunately the public defender has an enormous caseload.  They are good lawyers but terribly overworked.  Call today for a free consultation.

Florida is leading the Country in Sex Sting arrests.  That is not because there are more pedophiles here than elsewhere.  It is because law enforcement agencies have found an easy way to pump up their statistics, generate publicity and make money.  Most of the people arrested in Polk , Seminole and Manatee County are not criminals.  They are young men that were entrapped by outrageous police conduct, typically bait and switch tactics.

If a loved one has been arrested, do not assume they are guilty.  Do not abandon them.  It is very likely that they were entrapped and lured and induced to respond to emails or texts by some slick undercover cop tolling the Internet for bored lonely men.  These cases can be defended successfully.  In Polk County that have run sting after sting luring men from all over Florida and enticing them to travel to meet a minor.  The police are not detecting crime, they are creating false arrests to make it look like they are doing their job.

The police post on adult sites like Backpage, Adam4Adam and Craigslist Casual Encounters and time after time as adults.  When they get a response they try and lure lonely men with suggestive comments or “winks” claiming that they are fourteen or fifteen.  Lonely bored young men, many time shy young men fall for this ploy.

Do not trust the fate of a love one to the public defender.  Most public defenders are overworked with an impossible caseload.  Many public defenders lack the experience in handling sex cases.  Would you want your father, your brother, your boyfriend or a loved one defended by an attorney basically doing on the job training?

How do I find the best sex sting lawyer?

No legitimate lawyer will ever claim he is the “best”.  There are some very fine criminal defense lawyers in Florida.  Not all of them handle sex cases on a regular basis.  You need to find a lawyer that has experience in defending sex cases.  Look at the attorney’s background and education.  How long has he or she been actually defending sex charges?  Beware of out of State lawyers who are really running referral services and will only take your money and then hire someone locally.  Beware of lawyers that will tell you what you want to hear to get you to hire them.  Do your homework.  Go on the Internet.  Go to the Florida Bar site and check for complaints.  It is impossible for any lawyer to represent thousands of people without someone being dissatisfied but beware of any attorney who has multiple sustained complaints.  Make sure the lawyer you hire is the one who is going to handle your case.  Not all lawyers are created equal nor is their level of experience.  Good criminal defense lawyers unfortunately are expensive.  That is because they devote enormous time and effort to presenting a successful defense.  A good example is the recent Zimmerman case.  Would a public defender have won that case?  Take the time to look into the criminal lawyers background, track record and check out his or hers reputation among his peers.  Beware of lawyers that bad mouth other lawyers.  Beware of lawyers that promise a successful result.  No reputable lawyer will do that.
