Internet Sex Sting Operations

Local law enforcement officials utilize a number of different tactics to prevent crimes from occurring. In some cases, they use undercover officers to catch suspects in the act of committing a crime. In one recent case, a 44-year-old coach at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach was arrested for soliciting sex from a minor who turned out to be an undercover officer. According to news reports, in that particular case, an officer pretended to be a 14-year-old girl and engaged in a conversation with the defendant. The man was arrested when he traveled to meet “the girl.” He was arrested for using a computer to entice a child, for traveling to entice a child and for using a two-way communication device to commit a felony. Local law enforcement agencies often combine their forces to form these teams to conduct Internet sex stings.
