I previously wrote about the ongoing online solicitation of a minor/attempted sex assault of a child sting operation in Fort Bend.
I wrote that it kept going and going, like the Energizer Bunny, but now it has finally ended.
Turns out, this sting operation extended far beyond Fort Bend County, Texas. We now know the online solicitation sting extended to three other counties: Harris, Montgomery and Galveston.
A total of 126 suspects were arrested and charged. And true to form, the District Attorneys had a joint press conference, publicized mug shots of those arrested, and have made it as difficult as possible for them to be presumed innocent (as the Constitution requires) or to hire an attorney (since they will now almost surely lose their jobs).
You can read the full story over at the Houston Chronicle.
I’m looking forward to defending several of my clients against the strong-arm tactics police used in these online solicitation of a minor cases, including: misleading defendants about the alleged minor’s age; the alleged minor appearing on adult-only apps and chat groups; the alleged minor coercing defendants to go over to the alleged minor’s apartment even though defendants did not initially want to; and police pressuring defendants to confess.
