Enticement of a Minor

Sex Crime Defense Lawyers in Nashville, TN

Several varieties of the crime of sexual exploitation of a minor involve the enticement or solicitation of a minor to engage in sexual activity or simulated sexual activity. Specifically, TCA § 39-13-528 specifies that it is illegal for an adult to knowingly contact or communicate with a minor in order to engage in specified illegal activities with or against the minor. TCA § 39-13-529 prohibits the solicitation of the sexual exploitation of a minor or the exploitation of a minor via electronic means.

These and related prohibitions hold true even if the "minor" is not, in fact, a minor, but rather, "a law enforcement officer posing as a minor, and whom the person making the display reasonably believes to be less than eighteen (18) years of age."

Cases involving the enticement, solicitation, or sexual exploitation of a minor can be exceedingly complex and are harshly prosecuted and penalized. In addition to facing imprisonment and fines, you may face lifetime sex offender registration, which alone can negatively affect every aspect of your life. You must involve a competent attorney to defend your constitutional rights.

Federal Charges for Solicitation/Exploitation of a Minor

When a suspect invites a minor to go out of state to commit a sex crime, the FBI may get involved. Your legal situation is very serious if you have been charged, or have reason to believe you may be charged, with such a crime. A conviction in federal court could result in 20 years in prison.

You have no time to waste if you have been arrested or if you have learned that state or federal law enforcement agents are investigating you in connection with alleged enticement of a minor for the purpose of sexual activity.
