RULING DEFINES LIMITS OF ONLINE SEX STINGS
A federal appeals court ruled that Mark Poehlman was entrapped by the task force involving FBI, Navy and county officials. The conviction of the Florida man was overturned. He was arrested walking into a hotel room on the promise of having sex with three underage girls as a result of a police sting. This ruling, experts say, will further define how such law enforcement operations can be handled and perhaps give those looking to engaging in child pornography tips on how to avoid getting caught.
