Exploitation generally refers to the sexual exploitation of a minor, a crime often committed over or using the internet. Chat rooms and child pornography sites are often the mediums for exploitation and will result in charges brought against a person for their attempt to seduce or proposition a minor for sexual activity, or for viewing or possessing pictures or videos of children engaging in sexual activity.
Jennifer Le is an Orange County exploitation defense attorney who has experience with all types of sex crimes throughout Southern California. By keeping ahead of state and federal laws and regulations regarding sexual exploitation and exploitation of a minor, attorney Jennifer Le maintains a level of expertise and knowledge in this area that makes her a force to reckon with both in and out of the courtroom.
Law enforcement agencies often monitor chat rooms and internet websites to locate and arrest exploitation offenders. By using fake usernames and creating false identities in chat rooms, a police officer may impersonate a minor and flirt with an adult in order to coerce the adult into sending illicit photographs, requesting illegal photographs or videos or into requesting a meeting to engage in sexual activity. By entrapping an adult, the law enforcement agency may then make an arrest for sexual exploitation of a minor. Although no illegal sexual actions may have occurred, and although the “child” in the chat room was actually over the age of 18, this may still be used to charge an unsuspecting adult of exploitation.
If convicted of sexual exploitation of a minor, you will likely face jail time as well as registration as a sex offender, a label that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
