Computer Crimes Involving Minors
The state of Oklahoma has passed several laws pertaining to the sex solicitation of minors. One specific law deals with solicitation via technology.
Soliciting Sexual Conduct or Communication With Minor by use of Technology – as it’s called—makes it illegal in Oklahoma to “facilitate, encourage, offer or solicit sexual conduct” with an individual suspected to be under the age of 16 via computer, laptop or smartphone in any format, including via text messaging or app or a social media platform.

Canadian County officials seem to be the most determined to trap people into communicating with someone pretending to be underage. Per capita, more sex crimes have been filed in Canadian County (El Reno) than any other county in Oklahoma over the past few years. In addition, law enforcement in Cleveland County (Norman) and Oklahoma County (Oklahoma City) have also started to focus on these types of charges.
