Lincoln RI Indecent Solicitation of a Minor
A middle-aged man was arrested in Lincoln, RI, and charged in the Kent County Rhode Island Superior Court for:
- Indecent Solicitation of a Minor, in violation of R.I.G.L. § 11-37-8.8
- Electronically Disseminating Indecent Material to Minors, in violation of R.I.G.L. § 11-9-1.5
A middle-aged Massachusetts man was arrested and charged by Rhode Island State Police with Indecent Solicitation of a Minor and Electronically Disseminating Indecent Material to Minors. The charges stemmed from an undercover, online internet investigation where an undercover police officer posing as a minor female sought to have sex with an adult male. Police both posted and responded to doublelist.com ads regarding casual encounters and hook-ups. The Massachusetts man corresponded with the undercover officer. Even after the undercover officer, posing as a decoy told the man he was an underage female, the older male still expressed an interest and desire for sex. The police applied for and executed an arrest warrant for the man who was then placed under arrest and charged. Once arrested and charged, he hired Rhode Island Sex Crime Defense Lawyer, John L. Calcagni III, to defend him in this matter.
Case Result: Suspended Sentence with Probation.
Attorney Calcagni negotiated a plea deal that provided the man with a suspended jail sentence and probation in exchange for his admission of guilt.
