Sex Offenses

Joliet Solicitation of a Minor Attorney

Accused of Illinois Underage Sex? Attorney Steve Haney Will Fight for You.

Any type of crime against a child involves an emotional component that puts the accused at a severe disadvantage from the outset. But sex-related crimes against children seem to have an entirely new level of challenges associated with them. A conviction for this type of offense can result in a negative impact so severe that the criminal penalties are the least of your concerns.

One of the most prominent sex crimes involving children is solicitation. Law enforcement agencies often set up sting operations where officers will pose as minors in Internet chat rooms looking for adults seeking to make contact with minors. Television stations have dedicated entire programs to catching alleged offenders. These are high-profile crimes that prosecutors aggressively pursue.

If you are facing charges for solicitation of a minor, it is critical that you speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

Building a Strong Defense Against Solicitation of a Minor Charges

At the Law Office of Steven Haney, our Joliet solicitation of a minor lawyer takes a very proactive and results-oriented approach to protecting his clients’ rights. As a former Will County prosecutor, Steven Haney has the knowledge and the strategy to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome.

There are a number of key issues that need to be proven by the prosecution in order for their cases to hold up in court. If the solicitation happened via the Internet, the prosecution must prove that it was you on the computer at the time of the alleged solicitation. It must also prove that there was an intent to have sex, regardless of whether the alleged solicitation took place online or in person.

We will find any flaws in the prosecution’s case and use them to help us build the strongest possible defense on your behalf.
