Did you know that law enforcement officials are being enticed with financial rewards to make sweeping child sex stings with large numbers of arrests? That’s the case in today’s heated environment toward possible sex crimes involving children.
A national network of law enforcement agencies known as the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force has handed out more than $200 million in federal grants to police departments for making arrests in cases such as online solicitation of a child, sexual performance of a child, and sex assault of a child.
While child predators must be held accountable, not all of those arrests have been valid, and many innocent people have faced the stain and strain of false child sex accusations.
But when millions of dollars in federal funding is dangled before law enforcement agencies, the incentive to cast a broad net and catch vast numbers of arrests in child sex sting operations becomes compelling.
It’s easy to see why sex stings fueled by federal money have led to countless innocent persons being swept up in the process.
