The criminal defense attorney for sexually motivated crimes should file and litigate a motion to dismiss founded on entrapment. In these cases, law enforcement officers will engage in online advertisements:
- with advertisements for sex with a minor child in order to target child-sex predators.
- with advertisements for sex with an adult in order to target those involved in prostitution-related offenses.
The defense of objective entrapment is evaluated under the due process provision of article I, section 9, of the Florida Constitution. The objective entrapment analysis focuses on the conduct of law enforcement and operates as a bar to prosecution in those instances where the government's conduct so offends decency or a sense of justice that it amounts to a denial of due process.
