For example, if your computer is in an accessible area, someone else may have logged into your computer using your name and password and downloaded inappropriate content or engaged in inappropriate behavior without your knowledge. The prosecution must prove that you knowingly downloaded, saved or viewed the content in question.

Online Sex Stings And Online Traps

Internet sting operations are commonly used by law enforcement officers to catch online predators. The police pretend to be minors in online chat rooms and try to lure adults into making a request to meet them for a date, meeting or sexual encounter. This is considered solicitation of a minor, and it is a serious offense with serious consequences if convicted.

Many people who fall into these online traps are not necessarily interested in engaging in sexual or inappropriate activity with a minor. Some online stings even target websites that are just for adults and sexual in nature. If you are suddenly facing prison time and lifetime registration as a sexual predator due to some form of online activity, consult an experienced attorney.
