Inducing a Child Through the Computer

Defense Against Inducing a Child Through a Computer in Orlando and Central Florida

Defense Attorney in Orlando Handles Charges of Soliciting Child for Unlawful Sexual Conduct Using Computer

The crime of inducing a child through the computer is codified in Florida Statute 847.0135. The relative Florida Statute labels this crime as prohibited computer usage. Inducing a child through the Internet, like other crimes involving minors, involves jail time and can leave an individual with a tainted reputation. In an effort to protect children, the State Attorney’s office handles these types of cases very seriously. Even if found innocent, being charged with a crime of this magnitude leaves a person with embarrassing social stigmas. Therefore, hiring an experienced inducing a child through the computer defense attorney from NeJame Law is crucial.

What is Inducing a Child Through the Computer?

CERTAIN USES OF COMPUTER SERVICES OR DEVICES PROHIBITED. Any person who knowingly uses a computer online service, Internet service, local bulletin board service, or any other device capable of electronic data storage or transmission to:

(a) Seduce, solicit, lure, or entice, or attempt to seduce, solicit, lure, or entice, a child or another person believed by the person to be a child, to engage in unlawful sexual conduct commits a felony of the third degree.

Law enforcement has been known to utilize different methods for “sting” operations. These includes:

  • Internet chat rooms
  • Social networking sites
  • Facebook
  • MySpace
  • Twitter
  • AOL
  • Craigslist
  • Text Messaging

Unfortunately some people are wrongly accused of this awful crime and are forced to defend themselves against something that they did not do. Possible defenses for crimes of this nature include entrapment (when an agent of the government induces a person to commit a crime that the person was not otherwise predisposed to commit) or if a required element that the State must prove within the statute is lacking. For example, the prosecutor must prove that the defendant either seduce, solicit, lure, or entice the child (or person believed to be a child) to engage in an unlawful sexual act.

If convicted of inducing a child through the Internet there is a minimum mandatory prison sentence of 21 months. The Judge may also impose a penalty of up to 5 years in prison, up to 5 years of sex offender probation, and up to $5,000 in fines.
