Online Solicitation of a Minor in NY

New York Sex Crime Attorney

When an adult uses the Internet to engage in sexually explicit communication with a minor, they can be charged with solicitation of a minor for sexual purposes. State and federal law enforcement agencies monitor the Internet on a regular basis in effort to identify and apprehend sexual predators. Police personnel will even pose as a minor in sting operations that involve chat rooms, MySpace, Facebook and other social networking sites. Online solicitation of a minor can also encompass sexually explicit emails and the sending or receive of pornographic materials. Even using the Internet to arrange a meeting with a minor can result in solicitation charges.

We serve clients throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Rockland County and Westchester County.
