With the increasing usage of the internet, it is no surprise that cyber crime has exploded as well. This includes sex-related crimes. Usually, the victims of these crimes are children due to their vulnerable nature. One of the most common internet sex crimes involving children is the online solicitation of a minor. This involves an adult over the age of eighteen purposefully luring or enticing a child into committing a sexual act or meeting with the purpose of a sexual encounter.
Due to the nature of the internet, it is easy for an adult to pretend to be someone younger that they are. By sending pictures of a juvenile, adding details and falsifying the truth, these adults can lure a minor into trusting them – often convincing them to meet them.
