Online Solicitation Defense

You chatted online with an individual. You arranged to meet him or her at an arranged location. Suddenly, you find yourself being escorted down to the police station. Even in circumstances such as this one, there are defenses available that can reduce or even eliminate your sex offense charge.

Police officers often pose as young children in an attempt to catch potential predators. In the process, or during the arrest, they may violate your rights. Seth Chazin knows when the police have gone too far and can use it to your advantage when preparing your defense and negotiating with prosecutors.

The prosecution has the burden of proving intent in online solicitation cases. Attorney Chazin asks the right questions to challenge the prosecution's evidence and turn the tables in your case:

  • Did the photo you received of the alleged victim appear as if the minor was older?
  • Did the alleged victim claim he/she was an adult?
  • Did the alleged victim use language that would lead someone to believe that he/she is older than the actual age?

“The death penalty is a lie, a misguided mistake born of anger and frustration. Capital punishment has become a perverse monument to inequality, to how some lives matter and others do not. It is a violent example of how we protect and value the rich and abandon and devalue the poor. The death penalty is a grim, disturbing shadow formed by the legacy of racial apartheid and bias against the poor that condemns the disfavored among us, but corrupts us all. It’s the perverse symbol elected officials use to strengthen their ‘tough on crime’ reputations and distract us from confronting the causes of violence. It is finally the enemy of grace, redemption and all of us who recognize that each person is more than their worse act.”
