There are numerous state and federal laws that prohibit the solicitation of a minor for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity. Whether you are charged under Pennsylvania or federal law, you will face severe penalties, including fines, prison time and registration as a sex offender. It does not matter whether a sex act was actually carried out or not. The fact that a minor was contacted is a crime in itself.
If you are facing charges for the solicitation of a minor for sex, be sure that you seek the advice of an aggressive criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. At Law Offices of Kelly & Conte in West Chester, our attorneys handle solicitation of a minor cases for clients throughout southeastern Pennsylvania. We have successfully represented numerous clients in these matters, and we know how to obtain a positive result in your case.
Taking A Strategic Approach To Your Defense
Do not think that you have no other option than to accept a conviction if you are charged with soliciting a minor for sex. These cases are very fact-specific, and there can be a number of potential defenses that may provide the keys to your freedom. For example, if the solicitation in question happened over the Internet or some other computer-based form of communication, it may be possible to argue that another person had access to your computer and that you were not the person making the solicitation.
When you hire our firm, we will conduct a thorough investigation into your case, including the evidence that drove the government to file charges against you. We scrutinize every piece of evidence and follow up on every aspect of the case looking for any defect that could be used to prove your innocence. If there was anything improper about the investigation or the way the evidence was gathered, we will take steps to have the evidence thrown out. In every case, our only concern is to avoid a conviction on your record.
