Solicitation Sting Nets Life Guard from Miami Dade

July 21, 2009 by David S. Seltzer

Patience pays off...sometimes, but with police agencies actively seeking out those soliciting minors, the agents investigating have all the time in the world. Police around the State and country are growing more patient in developing their suspects. No longer do law enforcement agencies look to net the "quick fix big fish," rather they have started "stalking" their subjects. What that means is they are digging into the backgrounds of their targets and learning everything they can before they make their arrest. They will have several chats, sometimes over a period of months until they finally make an arrest.

Recently in Miami Dade County a life guard was arrested and charged with solicitation of a minor online by the Broward Sheriff's office. BSO had been tracking and following him for months as they built their case. This was a combined effort with international ties, which ultimately led to his arrest. That is what makes this case a little more interesting than most. There are several issues that can arise when dealing with international cases, the evidence they bring and methods that may or may not lead to its introduction in a United States Court of law.

Allegations are all that has been made at this time, and everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty. As a cyber crime defense attorney, there are many avenues that can be taken in order to successfully win and defend against the crime of online solicitation.
