Meeting Up With A Minor Charges

Facebook, Craigslist, Snapchat, email, chat rooms, and various phone apps allow us many options for connecting with others. Unfortunately, these sites can also cause problems when they are used by adults who are looking to pursue an inappropriate relationship with a minor.

Unfortunately, adult males are especially targeted by law enforcement officers who plan elaborate sting operations to catch alleged predators (much like the premise for the NBC television show "To Catch a Predator," which aired from 2003 to 2007).

No matter what circumstances have brought you to where you are today, you deserve to have your legal rights protected.

I am attorney Jason Rogozinski, and I defend clients who have been charged with meeting up with a minor, traveling to meet a minor to commit an unlawful sex act and other related sexual offenses.

These charges require prompt, aggressive attention. Do not wait another day to get a fierce criminal defense attorney on your side. To schedule a free consultation with me, please complete this online contact form.

Understanding Your Charges

If you have been charged with traveling to meet a minor to commit unlawful sexual acts, there is likely evidence suggesting that you have used the Internet (or another electronic device) to meet a minor and have attempted to initiate a sexual relationship with that individual. You may also have traveled to meet up with the minor with the intention of engaging in unlawful sexual acts with him or her.

When you work with me as your criminal defense attorney, I will closely examine the evidence against you and aggressively defend your legal rights. It is possible that the police obtained transcripts of your private chat or other evidence that you have engaged in an inappropriate online relationship with a minor. I will explore all possible defenses in your case:

  • Entrapment: Are you the victim of a sting operation by law enforcement?
  • Solicitation: Were you actually trying to seduce and lure a minor when you were chatting with him or her? The law is very clear on what type of language constitutes "solicitation" — and what you said may not qualify.
  • Other defenses: Once we meet to discuss what has happened to you, I will evaluate all other legal defense options.

If you have been charged with a sex crime, do not lose hope. Rather, take action and fight. I can help you do just that.
