Charges Involving The Solicitation Of A Minor
Oklahoma Sting Operations: What You Need To Know
The state of Oklahoma has become increasingly proactive in their investigations into potential sex crimes against children.
Working with the Oklahoma Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, local law enforcement agencies have launched numerous sting operations to catch alleged predators who are targeting minors on Craigslist, mobile apps and other platforms.
Similar operations have occurred in Canadian County, Oklahoma County and Cleveland County, to name a few.
Understanding Sting Operations
In these operations, an adult police officer will typically pose as a minor online, attempting to catch someone in the act of soliciting sex from a minor.
The prosecution will present transcripts of chats, copies of emails and other online correspondence and make it seem as though this evidence is bulletproof.
However, that is not necessarily the case. A skilled attorney understands that these things cannot be taken at face value.

- What was stated implicitly in the correspondence?
- Is there evidence that the accused actually sent the messages?
- Is it possible someone else used the computer?
- Are all the messages accounted for, or are some now “missing?”
