An experienced Maryland solicitation of a minor lawyer will understand how law enforcement officers conduct the investigation, the common mistakes officers can make that can jeopardize the government’s case, and what defenses may be available.
Solicitation of a minor is a felony sex offense in Maryland.
It is a crime in which no physical contact need occur for the accused to be charged or convicted of the crime.
More on the law shortly but first, here are the facts of the case: My client had developed the unfortunate habit of spending time on Internet chat sites looking for women to meet for sex.
He admittedly had been doing this for some time without the knowledge of his wife.
I was recently retained in such a case in Baltimore County Circuit Court wherein my client is charged not with soliciting a minor on the Internet, but instead with soliciting an undercover detective posing as a minor.
