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.

County and Westchester County.
