Here we go again. When crime slows down for the summer, the police simply create offenses. An Internet sex sting will do the trick.

The latest just announced in Daytona and Deltona is called Operation K.I.S.S., as in kiss your ass goodbye if the police have their way.

The Volusia Sheriff and other agencies are at it again claiming to protect the public from online predators. Nothing could be further from the truth. Again they are targeting weak vulnerable men who were looking not for children, but adults. What the police neglect to report is that in almost every instance, they engaged the men first pretending to be an adult. After getting them to chat they then claimed to be underage, about 14 years old. They would then with subtle hints try and get the men to talk about sex or worse yet, send pictures.
This happens every summer. It is a sure fire way to pump up arrest statistics and get publicity. The sad thing is that these sex stings ruin lives. They destroy families and try and label men sex predators for life. If you become a registered sex offender, you experience a lifelong punishment. Being on sex offender probation is a one way ticket to jail. Everyone’s goal is to get you to violate your probation and put you in Florida State prison for years. As a sex sting lawyer, I see all too often the damage they do with basically trumped up entrapment cases.
It is true that occasionally they arrest someone for traveling to meet a minor or solicitation of a minor that really was looking for a minor. Those cases are few and far between. Most of the time they arrest young introverted shy men who are simply weak when it comes to temptation.

Sex is the ultimate bait. A man thinking with the wrong head, particularly when the police send pictures and invitations to come over and have sex, can find himself, arrested, on television and in Court facing a decade in prison. These cases are not hopeless. As a sex sting lawyer, I have handled well over thirty Florida Internet sex sting cases in Seminole, Volusia, Lee, Manatee, Sarasota, Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties. The key issue is “who is the real seducer”? Most of the time it is cops, and they are good at it.

Internet Child Porn Stings in Florida

Internet Child Porn Stings in Florida last quarter 2014
The Internet Sex stings are taking a new twist here in Florida. Grady Judd seems to be shifting to Internet prostitution Stings. In Sarasota, Lee, St Johns, Brevard, Manatee, Pinellas, Hillsborough, Volusia, Pasco, Alachua, Citrus, Broward, Desoto, Polk, Osceola, Seminole, Orange and Miami Dade counties there seems to be a push to get people to either send child pornography or exchange kiddie porn. Child pornography carries incredibly harsh penalties and if you are prosecuted in Federal Court the penalties can be even worse which can include sex offender registration and sex offender probation.
There is also a push to get men to respond to ads for sex with children in foreign countries. There has been recent arrests for simular sex crimes against children charges in Montana, Washington, Orgegon, Utah, Georgia, Texas, California, New York, Ohio,Virginia, Michigan, Alabama and the Carolina’s.The best way to not get arrested for a sex offense is to not commit a sex crime offense. The various law enforcement entities have now realized that sex is the best bait when it comes to creating criminal violations. Sarasota is overdue for another Internet sex sting as is Bradenton and Tampa. In the last few stings, arrests have fallen off and my bet is that you will see the police phase into more child pornography stings. Never respond to any ad that even suggests it has anything to do with images of children is sexual situations. Never, no never send or receive any child porn.
The problem is what you can do if you accidentally get a child porn image with a hash tag value sent to you while viewing regular adult porn. It is not an intentional possession but the police do not care. Simply hitting the delete button on your computer will not erase it. It stays in your computer in “unallocated space”. If you accidentally get child porn and take it to a repairman to delete it, chances are you will be reported and arrested. I even knew of a case where a man threw his computer into a canal. It was recovered and the images were still on the hard drive. Reformatting the entire hard drive is said to be an option but many people simply do not have the technical skills to do it. I have heard of cases recently where computers are hacked and porn is sent without the owner’s knowledge. If you live in an apartment building or your home is close to another house you run the risk of someone accessing your wi-fi. Unfortunately, we live in dangerous times and you do not have to commit a crime to get arrested.
Never allow anyone access to your computer. Password protect your computer or phone. If you have a teenage boy and he gets access to your computer he could interact with another teenage girl without making physical contact and you could find the police at your door. Never surrender your computer without a search warrant. If contacted, call us for a free consultation before answering any questions by law enforcement. Call Peter D.
