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.

Sex Sting Prosecution in Federal Court in Tampa

20150617-042-Edit

An Air Force Sergeant was the latest man to be arrested and prosecuted in Federal Court in Tampa just days ago. The Air Force office of Special Investigations is still running stings on the Internet on Craigslist.com and other social medial adult dating sites. All of the details of this latest sting are not available yet, but the prosecution has been filed in Federal Court to take advantage of the harsh Federal Sentencing Guidelines. As a former Federal prosecutor and a former Federal agent, I understand why sometimes cases are filed there instead of the local State Courts. In this instance, the case originated with a military investigation. The military also has the option of proceeding in military court where the defendant’s fate is decided by a panel of officers as opposed to regular citizens. Federal Court is the big league and the penalties there are harsh and oppressive.

In my opinion, the military should deal with military issues and stay out of the sex sting business. I guess it is just too tempting for some of the investigators. Doesn’t the military have enough to do dealing with actual rapes and sex crimes committed by military men or fellow military members? Sex Sting Cases are just too easy to create. It is like shooting fish in a barrel. It is an easy way to run up statistics. I have represented a number of military men in State Court prosecutions in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. I have represented a number of military men in State Court prosecutions in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. Those cases were all filed in State Court. In Clearwater, I handled a case where an Air Force Special Investigator by the name of Glidewell was involved in a purely State investigation and prosecution. That is a direct violation of a Federal Law, the Posse Comitatus Act, a law that specifically prohibits the military from enforcing State laws.

That is probably why now they are bringing Federal prosecutions instead of State cases.

Not all lawyers are admitted to practice in Federal Court and not all lawyers are familiar with the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure or the Federal Rules of Evidence.

Few are familiar with the military proceedings and not all criminal lawyers have experience defending sex sting or sex crime cases. A successful defense of an Internet Sex Crime takes real know how and experience. These types of cases can be won given the right set of facts, a knowledge of the law, and good hard work. Winning is not an accident. The Internet is a dangerous place. My advice is to stay away from the Internet dating sites and if anyone ever even remotely hints they are a minor, or suggests hooking up with a minor, terminate all communication. Never, no never, travel to meet a minor for anything, much less sex. Imagine being a registered sex offender for life. It just is not worth it. If you or someone you know has been questioned or arrested in a Federal Sex Sting take down in Seminole, Brevard, Orange, Lake, Broward, Monroe, Miami Dade, Polk, Highlands, Citrus, Pasco, Sarasota, Manatee, Pinellas, Lee, Charlotte, Desoto or Hillsborough county call us on or before the arrest. We have the experience that you need.

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
