With increased focus, Michigan and federal law enforcement agencies are devoting resources towards investigating and prosecuting people for Internet crimes, including solicitation of minors and other computer crimes. Without question, this is one of the most common federal and state charges, especially over the last decade. A defendant who is convicted of an Internet solicitation charge might be jailed, imprisoned, fined, subject to a criminal record, removed from their children, and required to maintain long-term sex offender registration on Michigan's Public Registry. And yet, computers are far from reliable when used as the underlying basis for a criminal charge. A computer malfunction, glitch or operation error should not result in punishment for Internet solicitation.
