Unlawful Use of a Computer to Solicit a Child for Unlawful Sexual Conduct
Criminal charges involving the unlawful use of a computer to solicit a child for unlawful sexual conduct typically arise with sex crimes allegations, including traveling to meet a minor. This type of accusation can have serious consequences including up to 5 years in prison, a $5000 fine and up to 5 years of sex offender probation. Law enforcement will often set up a sting or undercover operation to target adults surfing the Internet with the intent to meet a child for sex. This type of investigation has become popular among law enforcement since the television show on NBC To Catch a Predator. When you enlist help from an experienced defense attorney, you take a wise and important step toward minimizing the consequences of the matter.
