Child Sexual Predator Charges
Any kind of sex crime accusation involving lewd acts with minors will have serious consequences. There are serious fines and a possible prison sentence involved, not to mention the sex offender registry. Without the right legal representation, these criminal sexual charges could have a devastating impact on your life and your reputation.

Sting Operations ∙ Entrapment
Most people have seen the television shows where investigators pose as underage kids looking for sex in order to lure people and expose them as “sexual predators.” The unsuspecting stars of the show travel long distances only to find out that they are part of major sting operations that sometimes involve multiple arrests.
One issue that rarely arises in these shows, however, is the possibility of entrapment or other violation of the rights of the accused. Ask yourself:
- Were you induced by a police officer posing to be an underage person?
- Would you have been unlikely to commit the crime if it wasn’t for the police officer inducing you in that way?
- Was your right to privacy violated?
- Do you feel that any of your other individual rights were violated at any stage in the process, starting from the police’s pre-arrest investigation?
If you have been charged with traveling to meet a minor and are facing the label of child sexual predator or sex offender, our Orlando attorneys will explore all of the ways in which your rights may have been violated. Read more about entrapment in child predator arrests on our blog.
If you feel like you are a victim of entrapment, or you have suffered any other violations to your rights, contact us, even if you have not yet been arrested. If you have reason to believe that you are being set up for a sting operation, our pre-arrest investigation services can go a long way to reduce or dismiss charges before they are even brought, or help you avoid arrest altogether.
