The government has issued grants to police agencies in southern California to help seek out potential child molesters. The police pose as minors on the internet and in chat rooms and strike up conversations with unsuspecting persons looking for romance or intimacy on the internet. Dateline NBC had recently done a special on these new arrests happening throughout the southland. The sting operation has netted hundreds of arrests of people who communicated with persons they thought were real people. In reality, they were police who induce you to meet them at a certain location. When the suspect arrives, they are arrested and charged with 664-288 (attempted child molestation) and 288.4 (internet solicitation of minors). Do not be fooled. Be careful who you talk too. California law prohibits communication with minors on the internet that include sexual content or sexual solicitation (288.4 California Penal Code).
