Criminal Solicitation of a Minor-The Chat Room Fiasco

Often times an arrest for criminal solicitation of a minor is tied to an online chat room.  A  Federal Agent, pretending to be underage, may participate in a discussion of a sexual nature and offer to send or receive pornographic images or even meet in person.

Whether you are charged with criminal solicitation of a minor or possession or distribution of child pornography, there are several common defenses:

  • Did you deliberately offer to send or request illegal pictures or video?
  • Was it actually the Defendant who used the computer?
  • Entrapment

Minors and Sexting

Everyone, including children and teenagers, carries a cell phone these days.  Combined with the recent trend of sending inappropriate pictures, there is a new area of potential liability for child pornography.  While interpretive case law is not completely clear yet, under existing law, it remains illegal to send or receive child pornography including new pictures shared between minors.
