Chat Room Arrests and Entrapment

Police officers often pose as minors in chat rooms and readily engage in sexual conversations with other chat room visitors. Many adults are arrested by police when they attempt to meet the person who was posing as a minor. They may be charged with solicitation of a child to commit sex acts or other serious crimes.

The defense for many sex crimes related to chat room conversations is entrapment, since police officers posing as minors often aggressively pursue meeting the adult. Internet crime defense lawyers John W. Callahan, Ltd. will also examine email records, text message records, to find out what was really said and what was expected. Just because you went to meet someone posing as a sixteen-year old, does not mean you were planning to have sex with him or her.
