Georgia Sex “Sting” Operations

Both Georgia and Federal law provide for certain forms of law enforcement that come close to entrapment but do not cross the line. This is because the law allows officers to pose as children on the Internet, phones, and other forms of communications. They pretend to be the age of consent to begin with, and then exchange language or images of a sexual nature, at which time the officer who first lied about be an adult now states that he or she is actually younger. Having created the interest in sexual matters, the officer waits to see if the citizen will “take the bait” and meet somewhere for some further activity. If the bait is taken, the citizen gets immediately arrested and could do up to 20 years in prison without ever even touching a child.

Sexual Assault

This is one of the most serious categories of criminal offenses for which you can be arrested. Law enforcement, judges, and juries take acts of sexual violence or unwanted contact very seriously.

Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact that is unwanted or perpetrated by a person who has authority over the individual. This crime can be committed against both adults and minors. It is vital that you have a knowledgeable sex crime defense attorney on your side who understands the nature of your charges.

If you are convicted of sexual assault, you could face time in prison, fines, restitution, probation, and/or be put on the sex offender registry. Call Sexual Assault Attorney Elmer Young today – he will help ensure your rights are protected and that you have a fair trial.

Child Molestation

Crimes against children are one of the most serious sexual offenses and are prosecuted harshly. Child molestation is any type of sexual activity committed against or engaged in with an individual who is under the age of 14. This crime carries heavy consequences, including registration as a sex offender. If you are charged with child molestation, it is vital that you choose an experienced Georgia defense attorney who can successfully represent and defend you. Sexual Assault Attorney Elmer Young is committed to providing the representation you deserve.


If you are facing rape allegations or you have been arrested for rape, you may not be sure who you can turn to.

However, you should understand that they do not have your best interests in mind. Georgia Defense Attorney Elmer Young is here to protect your rights and give you the opportunity to have a fair trial.
