Coercion and Enticement Attorneys
The laws surrounding federal sex crime cases are extremely complex. These cases require the assistance of an experienced and skilled federal sex crime law firm to combat criminal charges and avoid the harsh penalties that often accompany a conviction. If you or a loved one is facing coercion and enticement charges, it’s crucial to contact a skilled defense attorney early on in the case. The more time your lawyer has to conduct his or her own investigation into the specifics of the case and prep your defense, the better your chances are of receiving a favorable outcome.
What are Coercion and Enticement Charges?
Coercion and enticement charges are unique, because typically the act of persuading someone is not against the law. In cases related to sex crimes, however, you can face charges no matter how small of part you allegedly played. Because of the nuances of this offense, it’s common for innocent individuals to face coercion and enticement charges. If you feel like you are being unjustly targeted, don’t assume that investigators will uncover the truth. Reach out to the Grabel & Associates team today and start developing your defense.
Coercion and enticement is illegal at the federal level. That means that you could potentially be charged in either jurisdiction, depending on the details of your case. Section 2422(a) of Title 18 states that it is illegal for an individual to knowingly persuade, entice, induce, or coerce anyone else to travel within the United States or in foreign commerce with the intent of taking part in prostitution or any other kind of criminal sexual conduct. It is also against the law to attempt to persuade, induce, entice, or coerce a person into traveling for the purpose of engaging in criminal sexual activity. If you are convicted of coercion and enticement, you could face life-altering penalties, such as imprisonment for up to 10 years, a fine, or both. If the individual you enticed or attempted to entice is under the legal age of 18, the punishments increase. You may be up against 15 years in prison, a fine, or both.
