If you or a loved one get arrested you will go before the Court within 24 hours at what they call a first appearance. Before that happens, while you are in the jail, someone will ask you to fill out an application for a Public Defender. Did you know that they charge you a fee simply for filling out the application? They charge you a booking fee and they charge you a fee for every day you are in jail. If you have been arrested and you are facing felony criminal charges you absolutely must have an attorney. Even if you are guilty, you still need an attorney to guide you through the system. Many people because of the lack of money are forced to use the Public Defender. One of the questions I am often asked is “should I use the Public Defender”
Some of the lawyers at the Public Defender’s office are experienced and qualified. Others have little experience and minimal qualifications. Would you want heart surgery performed by a doctor at a public health clinic? If you are facing charges in March 2015 in Manatee or Volusia County you really need to think about a way to hire a private criminal defense attorney. Our Aiken and O’Halloran criminal defense firm, like many others will work with you to find a way to provide a quality defense. Often a relative or friend can put the fee on a credit card. In some instances, we may be able to take an assignment of your bond collateral to secure our fee and in other instances, we may be able to work out a payment plan. I have over forty years State and Federal Criminal Defense and Trial experience. As a former Federal Agent and Prosecutor I have handled over the years thousands of serious felony cases for crimes ranging from Homicide, aggravated battery, drug trafficking, racketeering and numerous Sex Sting and Sex Crime offenses. Many of the charges now, particularly Sex Crimes involving children carry minimum mandatory sentences. If you are facing 15 years in prison or in some instances life do you want some young inexperienced lawyer representing you?
When you are arrested it is generally a surprise to everyone. It is like any other emergency. If your roof fell in, if your transmission failed or if you got some serious illness, you would find a way to pay for it. It is the same with being charged with a serious crime like Cyber Child Sex Stings or Internet Sex Sting Operations. Talk to your relatives and friends. Sometimes an employer will help you. Sometimes you may have to sell something you own on Craigslist to raise the money. Find a way because it may make a big difference in your life.
Call for a free consultation. It costs nothing to talk to us. Check out our qualifications and experience and compare them with other private lawyers. 941-366-3506

Another Sex Sting in Bradenton

4x5 056Another Sex Sting in Bradenton
The Manatee Sheriff’s spokesman went on television to announce the arrest of 14 men in the latest Internet sex sting operation. What the public is told is simply a lie. In the press releases, the Sheriff claims that the men approached minors with profiles on the Internet. The truth is that the undercover chatters posed as adults on Internet sites like Craigslist,, and After engaging the men in chat, the detectives switched to ages to those of minors. Many lives have been ruined by these sex sting operations. The public needs to be told the truth about what is really happening.
It is a crime to lure, seduce and entice a minor. It is a crime to travel to meet a minor after using the Internet to lure, seduce or entice. The police are posing as adults and then pretending to be minors interested in sexual encounters. The truth is that in many of these cases it is the police that are doing the seducing. The police post ads in the adult section of posing as prostitutes offering sex and “in calls” for money. When men respond, they switch the age and claim the woman is really a 15 year old. The police run ads like “Get me pregnant” in adult dating sites. Again, they bait and switch and after engaging men in texting switch the age to that of a minor.
One of the common ploys is for the police to pose as a mother or single dad looking for someone to teach their daughter about sex. Over and over, year after year, men fall for this pitch. The police are still getting away with these entrapment techniques. As the cases work their way through the court system the real tactics come to light. There is a world of difference between what you see on television and what is really happening. As a sex sting lawyer and sex crime attorney I have been involved in over twenty five of these sting cases. I have been blogging for several years trying to educate the public, but the stings keep on coming. The truth is that there are millions of dollars of Federal money involved. The local departments are under pressure to produce results to justify the money they get. It is just like the old ticket quotas. There are defenses to these trumped up arrests and if you or a loved one gets arrested you need to speak with a criminal defense attorney who has experience in trying the cases.
Being falsely accused of a sex crime is a horrible thing. Friends, employers and family members often abandon you after a sex sting arrest. They simply do not know what really the police really have done. You can call my Sarasota office for a free consultation at 941 366 3506. I will give you and your family straight answers. If you have been arrested in the March 2015 Manatee internet sex sting, DO NOT give up, call me, Peter D Aiken, and let me talk you through your defense options. 941-366-3506
