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.

Attorney David McKenzie, Fairview Village PA
I have known Mr. McShane for many years now. I can say with absolutely no reservation that Mr. McShane is one of the finest lawyers in his field. He is attentive and accommodating to his clients. He is tenacious in the courtroom and his legal prowess is second to none. I highly recommend Mr. McShane.
Indecent Assault dismissed
I have never seen or heard of a more talented group of people and I believe if people really care about their life and future they’ll think real hard about hiring you guys.
Agg Indecent Assault dismissed
Justin, I believe, is the best bar none. Not only just in the courtroom but also for just being a great guy. I’ve always been told not to trust an attorney but Justin I trust along with the whole firm.
Was able to take tension off of the situation, and able to explain what was going on. Also helped put my mind at ease knowing that they were helping me along the way
I called at midnight the night before my hearing and spoke with Attorney Barrouk for almost an hour. He attended my hearing and got my charges dismissed.
I felt your firm had everything under control. you were on top of things and most of all I knew I did not have to worry about anything – which was great.
