Internet solicitation of a minor for sex is a very common sting operation the police are setting up in various social website like craigslist, back page and many others. Many times it is not a minor you are chatting with but an undercover cop. Solicitation via the internet is a crime in itself even if you never follow through with meeting the person. Traveling to meet a minor is a separate crime that occurs when you leave your house to meet this fictitious minor who is actually a police officer.
These charges are very serious and will score mandatory prison even without any criminal history in your background. A conviction will also result in you being a registered sex offender for the rest of your life. There are things you can do to help yourself in these cases to try and avoid prison and or conviction but you have to hire an experienced attorney in order to do so.
