Is an Online Sex Sting Legal?

While you might be surprised to learn that police are allowed to trick you into believing they’re someone else in order to get you to commit a crime (doesn’t that sound like entrapment?), they can. That’s exactly what they’re doing with their online sex stings: masquerading as minors under Operation AEGIS.

What to Do if You’re Accused of a Sex Crime after a Police Sting Operation

No matter what crime you’re being accused of committing, you do not have to answer police or investigators when they question you. You have the right to remain silent – so use it!

You can request that your attorney be present when you’re being questioned, too. It’s almost never a good idea to talk to police without talking to your lawyer first, even if you’re completely innocent, because they can take anything you say into the courtroom.

If the police haven’t arrested you, but they want you to answer questions, you’re free to leave the location. You can’t leave if they’ve informed you that you’re under arrest, though. The first thing you need to do is call a Milwaukee sex crime lawyer. Only your attorney can give you legal advice, and no two cases are the same; that means the only person you should let guide you in a matter this serious is your own lawyer.

Hiring a Lawyer for a Sex Crime Allegation

What it really boils down to is that you need someone to protect your rights after a Milwaukee sex crime allegation. When the situation is this serious—a Wisconsin sex crime conviction will stay with you your entire life—you can’t afford to wait to hire an attorney. As soon as you get in touch with a lawyer who can help preserve your rights, he or she can begin building a defense strategy on your behalf.
