Solicitation of a Minor
The crime of "solicitation of a minor" under Georgia state law is any offense in which a minor child is lured or persuaded to come to a certain location for sexual purposes. There are many efforts by law enforcement to trap those who are engaged in soliciting minors for sex acts, including police personnel posing as underage children online. A sex act with a person under the age of 16 is illegal. The punishments imposed upon an offender are based upon the age of the alleged victim, the disparity of age of the victim and the defendant, the prior criminal record, if any, and whether a sex act took place or was merely suggested.

Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
If you have been convicted of a sex offense and your sentence includes the requirement to register as a sex offender, you will face serious repercussions if you fail to adhere to this requirement. If you have recently moved into the Lawrenceville area, or the Atlanta Metro area, you are required to register locally. A failure to register within the time limits allowed under law can lead to incarceration and further legal trouble. Read more about charges involving a failure to register.
