Sex crime charge brought against Minnesota man set up in sting

When seeking legal counsel, many individuals will likely want to assess their particular circumstances in order to determine what type of assistance may be most valuable to them. If an individual has been charged with sex crime allegations, he or she will undoubtedly wish to explore criminal defense options and hope to gain insight from knowledgeable legal professionals. Such assistance could allow for better understanding of the situations.

One man in Minnesota may soon be working on his defense after recently being taken in custody. Reports stated that police had apparently set up a juvenile prostitution sting by posting an ad for an escort service. The man allegedly sent a text message to the number provided on the ad and was informed by police that a 14-year-old girl and a 16-year-old girl would be able to meet him.

The man purportedly went to the arranged meeting place and was taken into custody. As a result, he is currently facing charges for solicitation of a child to engage in sexual conduct. This charge is considered a felony. It was unclear whether the man still remains in custody. 

In order to handle the sex crime allegation brought against him, he will need to find out more information about the charge itself. He also will need to understand the Minnesota criminal proceedings for such allegations and plan for his criminal defense. If he wishes to seek assistance for determining his best possible starting point, he would need to consult with an experienced defense attorney.
