Soliciting Children in Chat Rooms

"A lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserve, a firefighter and a college student are among 24 Manhattan and Long Island men accused of soliciting sex from detectives posing as children in computer chat rooms during a monthlong sting operation, the Suffolk County police said on Tuesday. All were charged with attempting to disseminate indecent material to a minor, a felony with a maximum penalty of four years in prison. The 24 cases together constitute the largest child sex crackdown ever in Suffolk, the police said." By Julia C. Mead, New York Times Link to Article (last visited 2-15-06 NVS)
