PA OAG and to catch a child predator style cases in Hershey, PA

The Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General (PA OAG) has a “child predator unit.” Because the Office of Attorney General is located in Harrisburg, PA, and the kid family epicenter of PA is Hershey Park, the PA OAG loves to use Hershey as its target. They use a sting style internet based operation like what is seen on TV’s “To Catch a (Child) Predator” to set folks up. They will set up a fake account and troll on line until they find anyone that is willing to engage with them. They will honeypot them into thinking that they are a male or female under the age of 14. In other words, they will lie.

Through a series of days or weeks or months, they will use police tactics to get a person to agree to travel or invite them to travel to meet the alleged under 14 year old. Meanwhile, it’s a trap. If you agree to meet, and show, they will search your car and your belongings looking for items that they say is consistent with your intention to have sex with the alleged under 14 year old.

They will confront you, scare you with threats of long prison sentences and threats of high bail until you agree that what you did was knowing and illegal. They do not understand the role that fantasy has in the internet. You may be scared and embarrassed into giving a statement against your interests. If you agree, but you don’t show, they prosecute you any way. It’s a trap. Don’t be trapped. Call us. We can protect you.
