There has been a huge increase in the last few years by federal and state authorities to catch sexual predators.
Most men purchase sex during the work day through the internet.Cybersex is the act of role-playing sexual acts or exchanging explicit sexual messages with people through chat room via the internet.The practice itself has become quite popular, particularly with the rise of certain internet service providers.The deception can include the officer lying about their identity and sending photographs of other people or even other adults all in attempt to keep the conversation going. Do not assume that your privacy is protected, and do not assume that police must tell the truth.The mere act of having an sexually explicit conversation with someone whom you think is a minor is a federal crime.As our recent anti-trafficking efforts show, protecting our children from violent and manipulative predators is a central mission for the U. Attorney’s Office and our law enforcement partners.
