The Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates: League City, Galveston, Houston Criminal Defense Lawyers
Law enforcement officials are utilizing Internet sting operations in order to catch online child predators throughout Texas. Seen on popular news magazine shows, these Internet sting operations often involve undercover cops posing as minors in chat rooms and social media sites in an attempt to lure those who are soliciting minors online.
If you have been charged with solicitation of a minor online from an Internet sting operation, it is vital that you seek experienced criminal defense representation as soon as possible. You have legal rights, including constitutional ones that may have been violated during a sting operation. In addition, there are other defenses such as entrapment.
Attorney Tad Nelson understands how difficult cases are involving charges for solicitation of a minor online and other Internet sex crimes. Oftentimes people charged with a child sexual offense are automatically assumed guilty by the court of public opinion. Fortunately, this is not the court that matters. He will do everything he can to seek the best possible result for your specific case. This may include having charges against you dropped or dismissed. However, this can very much depend on how soon you seek criminal defense representation. That is why early intervention is so critical to these cases and why you need to act quickly.

These cases require a high level of understanding within the computer and Internet field. Fortunately, Tad Nelson is very experienced in Internet sex crimes cases. He works with computer experts in order to develop effective defense strategies for his clients.
