New York Online Solicitation Lawyer
With the expansion of the Internet as a primary means of communication, it has become far easier for police officers to monitor suspected sexual predators and entrap them by posing as a minor in a chat room or on social media sites like Facebook. However, it is illegal for law enforcement officials to set up fake chat rooms or usernames for the purpose of enticing adult users to engage in criminal activity.
