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.

Over twenty men were arrested in this latest Internet undercover operation in Alachua County. The police claim that over 2200 responses were received, resulting in arrests of men who traveled to meet minors for sexual encounters. What the news articles do not disclose are the tactics used by the police to entrap men who were initially seeking encounters with consenting adults on social media sites. I am willing to bet that in almost every instance the police first posed as an adult in an adult site and then bait and switched the men responding enticing them to meet with someone underage instead. I have now been involved in thirty six sex sting defenses and there is a clear pattern to the entrapment techniques used by law enforcement.

What the police are doing is simply wrong. They are creating crimes.

Most of the men who get tricked into traveling to meet a minor never intended to hook up with a child. Many respond out of pure curiosity. There is an old saying: “Curiosity killed the Cat”. As a sex sting lawyer, over and over, I read the texts and chats where the police are actually doing the luring, seducing and enticing. These cases are not hopeless and families should not assume the worst about a relative like a son, nephew or brother being arrested. The public is consistently misled with the press releases. What the police are actually doing is often catching shy or introverted lonely men who are weak and fall for the temptation of sexual chat, texting, sexting or phone calls.
The cops troll the internet adult dating sites like Backpage.com, Craigslist casual encounters, Adam4Adam posting profiles as adults. They post suggestive ads seeking men who want taboo encounters. They often pose as adult sisters seeking someone to teach little “Sis” about sex. They pose as single parents seeking someone to help educate their child about sex. I have found over the years that there are no real minors on the Internet looking to hookup with older men. It is always the cops. The best way to not get arrested is to not commit a crime. If you see a minor on the Internet, report and flag the posting. Let us all do our part to keep real kids off the Internet. If the police focused on prevention rather than creating arrests we would all be better off.

Polk and Lake County Team up on Sex Sting

4x5 044

Call (941) 366-3506
Grady Judd is running out of people to arrest in Polk County so he has teamed up with the Sheriff in Lake County. In the latest May and June 2015 operation, they have arrested 101 people. Most of them were in prostitution stings where the cops were either posing as prostitutes on the Internet or responding to prostitution ads on Backpage.com or Craigslist.com. The rest of the internet sex sting arrests were for men responding to adult Internet social network sites.
The press release is today so I am sure Grady will be telling his audience how he is making Florida safe with the sex sting operations. With respect to prostitution, it would be simpler to make it legal. The same thing with marijuana, make it legal. Take the money out it, and simply regulate it. Prostitution has been around as long as there have been men and women. There was a show on the discovery channel recently about female penguins that traded sexual favors for rocks to build their nests. Even the birds engage in prostitution.
Sadly, most prostitution is the result of drug addiction. We should treat addiction as a medical problem and work to help people rather than incarcerate them. For members of the Florida Sheriff’s Association, the stings produce arrests, publicity and justify Federal funding so there is no chance it will come to an end.
The best way to not get arrested is to not commit a crime. Internet hookup sites are dangerous places and contact with children for sex is absolutely prohibited. You can be innocently on an adult site and get a text or response from someone saying they are underage. Terminate all contact, flag the ad or response never under any circumstances continue to chat with anyone that even remotely suggests they are underage.
If a loved one has been arrested for traveling to meet a minor, Internet solicitation of a minor or sexting, or charged with internet or cyber crimes involving sex stings call 941 366 3506 for a free consultation.

Although there is no official press release yet, it appears another Internet sex sting is in process in Lake County. The best way to not get arrested is to not commit a crime. If you are on the Internet or using a social media dating application and anyone even hints that they are 12, 13 or 14 years old, terminate all texting or conversation and flag the ad. Everyone’s goal is to protect underage kids and kids should not be on dating sites. If someone indicates they are a child, do your part to get them off the Internet and report them.

 

HOW INTERNET  SEX STING OPERATIONS WORK:
The police often do a bait and switch on the phone applications and Internet dating sites and try and convince otherwise law abiding people to chat with or meet with children. You see shows on television and media reports by law enforcement all the time reporting arrests of people who travel to meet a minor or solicit a minor for sex. Never chat or test with anyone that says they are underage no matter how tempting they are. I have never seen a case where there is a real parent or guardian on the Internet offering a daughter or son for sex. I have seen dozens of cases where the police put up ads suggesting “family fun” or “Taboo sex” and then in chats offer kids for sex. Do not do something stupid and even for a second think about hooking up with a child. Parents in the real world have parental controls on their kid’s computers and in the last ten years, I have not seen one case where there is a real child trying to hook up on any adult site. Do not get entrapped or talked into doing something you would otherwise never do. I have handled 29 Internet sex sting cases all over Central and Western Florida and never once have a seen an instance of a real child on the Internet. It is always the police.

 

TO AVOID INTERNET SEX STING INVOLVEMENT WHEN LOOKING FOR AN ADULT ON AN ADULT DATING SITE: IMMEDIATELY FLAG THE AD AND DISCONTINUE COMMUNICATION IF THEY SAY THAT THEY ARE A CHILD OR UNDER ADULT AGE.

There are really good reasons to avoid all contact with children on the Internet. You can get arrested for simply talking or sending a pic. You can be arrested for a “thought crime” and never actually traveling anywhere. Never send in inappropriate picture of your genitals to anyone, much less a child. You will get arrested, have a high bond set and be faced with lifetime registration as a sex offender. Your life can be ruined forever. The Internet is a minefield for lonely men.

 

If you think you are under investigation or a family member, a son, father or close relative has been arrested for:

USE OF COMPUTER TO SEDUCE/SOLICIT/ENTICE A CHILD,TRAVEL TO SEDUCE, SOLICIT, LURE A CHILD TO COMMIT A SEXUAL ACT, ATTEMPTED LEWD AND LACIVIOUS SEXUAL BATTERY UNDER the age of 12- 13- 14, USE OF COMPUTER SEDUCE SOLICIT LURE CHILD, DOMESTIC SEXUAL BATTERY VICTIM LESS THAN 12, UNLAWFUL USE OF TWO WAY COMMUNICATION DEVICE, TRANSMISSION OF MATERIAL HARMFUL TO MINORS TO A MINOR, or ATTEMPTED CHILD MOLESTATION, call for a free consultation to discuss the situation

Are the Police still running Internet Sex Stings?
The answer to that is a resounding yes. They have changed the tactics slightly but the stings continue all across Florida. The FDLE has shifted the focus to child pornography but on a local level it is the same old same old. If you go on Backpage.com under the escort section, chances are if you respond to an ad, you are texting and chatting with an undercover detective. God forbid you are tempted to hook up and make a date, you run the risk of getting arrested. Worse yet, the police, posing as prostitutes will try and convert the misdemeanor prostitution charge to a felony by telling you that the hooker is really only 15. They will bait you into traveling to meet a minor simply to create a felony and take your car in a forfeiture proceeding. They regularly pose as Korean “massage” specialists and then to the bait and switch claiming to be underage. Remember, the best way to not get arrested is to not commit a crime.
If anyone on the Internet even remotely suggests they are a minor, terminate all contact, flag the posting walk away. Do not let some undercover officer talk you into doing something you would never do. The truth is, there are no young girls on the Internet who “need experience” or a “teacher”. All of those ads are police entrapment situations. You may start off talking with what you think is an adult only to be told that “I lied, I am really 14”. Do not get sucked into continuing to chat or text. Everyone’s goal is to protect kids. If you see ads like this, flag them. The police should be targeting their efforts on keeping real kids off the Internet, not talking adult men into compromising situations. If you are on Badoo.com, the application may match you up with what you think is a consenting adult. If they even suggest and underage encounter, stop all communication. In the past few years, I have handled 29 Internet sex sting cases. In almost 80% of them my client actually asked the chatter if they were the police. What do you expect them to say? Wake up….That is why they call them undercover officers. The police are under no legal duty to admit they are cops. I don’t know why people believe this.
They recently ran a sting in Manatee County and we are overdue for another one here in Sarasota. Grady Judd in Polk runs them almost every month. The Internet is a dangerous place and hooking up on Craigslist casual encounters or through KIK chatting can lead to a bad situation. You can get robbed or even worse hurt. You can get arrested…Do not do it.

Creating Crime in Volusia……More Sex Stings 2015

4x5 049

Creating Crime in Volusia……More Sex Stings
Sheriff Ben Johnson announced yet another Sex Sting in March of 2015 targeting prostitution and men on the Internet. Forty three arrests were made as a part of two operations. The sex stings called Operation Volusia Broadband and Operation Preda Tour 2015 targeted two different types of alleged sex crime. When the Sheriff went on television, he claimed as usual that he was protecting the public from horrible men targeting young underage girls on the Internet. The claims simply are not true and are merely an exaggeration to cover up what is really being done in these sex sting entrapment operations. In some cases, the police pose as parents offering children for sex. I have yet to see a single case in Florida of any real situation where a parent is offering a child. The police are not targeting actual crime. They are creating crimes. They are not interrupting crime, they are luring and tempting men into compromising situations. This is the exact same thing that happened in Bradenton with Operation Green Shepherd IV, just a week ago. The law enforcement agencies are getting huge sums of Federal money and have to justify it with arrests. The so called ICAC task forces are composed of various law enforcement groups such as local sheriff’s departments that need to justify taking money from the Feds.
More and more of the judges handling these cases are beginning to see the light and see what is really happening. If you are on the Internet and anyone even remotely suggests a meeting or tryst with a child, immediately terminate all contact, flag the posting and contact law enforcement. Prevention is the answer when it comes to crimes against children. There are no real parents, single moms or single dads on the Internet offering children. That is a total fiction created by the police to justify entrapment. The truth is that there are no 14 year old girls on the Internet that want to learn about sex. That is a total fiction created by the police to justify these sex sting operations. Internet dating is dangerous and now the police are using cell phone applications to match up unsuspecting men with fictional underage girls. The latest bait and switch involves child pornography and chat rooms. If you are on the Internet and anyone suggests any type of sexual activity with a person 13 or 14 walk away. Report suspicious activity to Craigslist, Badoo.com, Meetme.com or any other site that allows such postings. Law enforcement has also targeted the world’s oldest profession, women selling sex. They have taken it one step further and are posing as prostitutes. When a man accepts their offer, the police then try and create a felony by pretending to be under 18 years old. The police actually try and create a human trafficking crime. The best way to not get arrested is to not commit a crime. Do not interact with anyone on the Internet that even hints they are a minor. Month after month more men fall for the temptation of underage sex. Get real….there are no real children on the Internet seeking sex with older men. Most of the time, the real predators are the police and catch weak men that are not strong enough to walk away or terminate contact.

As a Florida sex crime lawyer, I understand what the police are really doing and understand how a false accusation can destroy a life. You can contact me for a free consultation at 941 366 3506

Sarasota Internet Sex Sting Running today, April 26th, 2014

Is 2014 the year of the Internet Sex Stings?  Pinellas County sex sting two weeks ago and another one here in Sarasota this week.  Just as I predicted, the Sheriff here in Sarasota followed suit and ran another so called “sex predator” undercover Internet operation once again targeting men on adult social media sites.  It does not matter that they were not seeking to engage in sex with underage minors.  It does not matter that they posted profiles on adult sites looking for consenting adult women.  It does not matter that they were not initiating contact.  When the smoke clears and the true facts come out, in almost every one of the sex sting arrests the police will be shown to be the driving force, bringing up sex and inviting men to travel (to get arrested)

It is like shooting fish in a barrel for the cops.  The FDLE post enticing photos.  The internet task force contact men and make suggestive comments.  Sex is the ultimate bait and my bet is that by the time this current sting is over, twenty or more men will be entrapped into traveling to meet a minor or tricked into sending suggestive sex photos to what the under cover cops claim is a young girl.  They will run the same “home alone” lingo.  The best way to not get arrested is to not commit a crime.

Never email a person if they claim to be a minor it is usually the cyber police.  Even if they start off saying they are an adult and then say something like “sorry, I lied about my age” terminate all contact immediately.  Do not even think about having sex with anyone under 21.  I know that is a few years over the limit but don’t take any chances.  It is sort of like catching a grouper that is barely over the limit.  Don’t take a chance.  Throw it back just to make sure.  Demand that anybody you email with send you proof of age.  Do not accept their word for it.  Demand proof of legal age.  Never travel to any house to meet with anyone.  Always meet only adults only in public places.  The Internet is a dangerous place. Craigslist is full of serious predators.  Some of them are cops trained and trying to talk you into committing crime.  I am not saying don’t get caught.  I am saying don’t even think about sex with anyone remotely underage. Do not do it

The latest stings are targeting gay men.  Be careful about Adam4adam.com, meetme.com and the other sex hookup sites.  As Sarasota criminal defense attorney, I have handled two dozen sex sting cases in Lee, Sarasota, Manatee, Seminole, Hillsborough and Pinellas County. The pattern is always the same.  Naïve young men are duped and tricked into doing something they would not normally do by law enforcement trained to get you there.  Do not let curiosity lead you into a terrible arrest.  Do not do anything that will lead to becoming a registered sex offender.  If a relative or close friend get arrested, get good competent legal advice from an attorney who has handled multiple stings.  Not all Sarasota criminal defense attorneys have handled these types of cases.  In hiring a lawyer, do your homework.  It is easy to document the number of actual sex sting cases a lawyer has handled.  If you interview an attorney and need representation in a sex sting case like Operation Intercept do not rely solely on advertising.   Call me at 941 366 3506
