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.

Should the Police be doing Sex stings ?


Imagine how that same manpower could be better spent. We live in dangerous times where in my opinion, our precious law enforcement resources could be devoted to much more serious situations.

The average “sex sting” involves dozens of officers and usually consumes most of a week.

In the cases I have handled as a criminal sex crime lawyer the cost sheets provided by the State claim law enforcement costs somewhere around $80,000.  I That would go a long way when it comes to gathering intelligence on terrorists, mentally dangerous individuals and potential “shooters”. I personally think crime prevention is more important than crime creation with these police entrapment stings.

The Orlando shooting at the “Pulse” was horrific.

All around this Country more and more “shootings” are happening. Imagine how much more productive it would be for the police to spend their “Internet” time tracking and or communicating with real criminals like potential terrorists. The various police departments here in Florida have spent thousands of man hours creating statistics with arrests for traveling to meet a minor and Internet solicitation of a minor. Instead of baiting otherwise consenting adults simply looking to hookup, the police could be baiting potential terrorists looking to kill innocent civilians. I would be willing to bet that Grady Judd has no one in his agency trolling the Internet for terrorists. After all, terrorists shoot back.

Is this how you want your tax dollars spent?

The answer is not to ban Muslims from our Country. That is ridiculous! Most of the shootings in America have been by our own citizens, most of the time white males under thirty. How about focusing our resources on identifying the real threats to our safety? How about tracking people who have a violent history based on mental illness? How about funding treatment for the mentally ill?

As a Sarasota criminal defense attorney, but more importantly, as a Florida taxpayer, I would rather see my tax dollars put to a better use. How about you?
