New Jersey Defense Lawyers: Internet Solicitation of a Minor
Bergen County Luring Defense Attorneys
Bergen County, New Jersey, has an active and aggressive Internet crimes investigation unit. In this jurisdiction and others, undercover police officers pose on the Internet as minors and try to encourage adults to engage in online chats with a minor. An arrest for Internet solicitation of a minor can come at almost any time, but most arrests occur after the adult makes plans to meet the supposed minor and shows up at the meeting place. The criminal charges in these cases can range from luring a minor and attempted criminal sexual contact to attempted sexual assault and attempting to endanger the welfare of a minor.
If you are implicated in a luring or solicitation of a minor case, choosing the right criminal defense lawyer to defend you can make the difference between spending years in prison and walking away with minimal criminal consequences.

Aggressive Defense in Internet Solicitation of Minors Cases in East Rutherford, Elmwood Park, Hackensack, Mahwah, Ridgewood and All of Bergen County
In many online solicitation cases, prosecutors will seize automobiles, cell phones, GPS systems, laptops, and other mobile devices that police and prosecutors believe facilitated the alleged crime. Our criminal defense team engages in negotiations immediately to repossess your belongings and to suppress any evidence obtained through illegal searches and seizures.
We also examine the possibility of using entrapment defenses and other defenses because in many of these types of cases there is no actual victim because no actual minor was solicited or assaulted.
Computer forensic evidence is also critically important in Internet solicitation of a minor cases. We have discovered, on behalf of past clients, that prosecutors and police sometimes make leaps of inference based on computer data that are not actually supported by the evidence.
Our law firm has had significant experience defending clients against computer crime charges like these, which can ruin a person's professional and personal reputation if not handled with extraordinary care.
