Man charged with soliciting a minor online

Being accused of a sex crime is something that no one wants on his or her record. It can affect your job, your relationship with your family and friends and even your health. Worry and stress become a part of your life from the moment you are charged. Knowing your rights under the law is important. For example, can you look at sexual sites on a computer that was issued to you from your employer or is that restricted? One man found out the hard way that you cannot do this.

The sites the man allegedly perused were geared toward children. The 40-year-old man was accused of visiting sexual sites on his school-issued computer. The authorities also found that he had on his computer a nude picture of a 12- or 13-year-old girl. It appears from the investigation that he Skyped with the girl.

Unfortunately for him, he crossed the line from legal to illegal. He had the choice of not downloading the illegal material and turning off his computer but allegedly chose not to.

The man was an eighth-grade social studies teacher in the Derby, Kansas, school district. He has been charged with electronic solicitation of a child and sexual exploitation of a child. The police in Wisconsin acted as if they were a 14-year-old girl and were trying to catch him in the act of soliciting a minor. That is reportedly what happened.

Getting a defense attorney early with this type of charge is of paramount importance. He or she will be able to follow the chain of evidence and if it was broken, the charges could end up mitigated or dropped.
