12 Men Arrested In Online Sex Sting: Operation Intercept

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has announced arrests in Operation Intercept.  This is the Sheriff’s third online sex sting.  The first thing someone arrested in this sting should do is to consult with and retain a qualified criminal defense lawyer.  What makes a lawyer qualified to handle such a case?  Attorney Mark Zimmerman is a Florida Bar Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer.  Only 5-6% of all lawyers are board certified in any area of law.  The number certified in criminal trial law is much smaller.  Make sure to ask whether the lawyer with whom you consult has handled such cases in the past.   Mark Zimmerman has handled online sex sting cases through trial.  If you are reading this on behalf of a loved one presently incarcerated in jail, make sure that they do not discuss their case with anyone other than a lawyer.  Phone calls from the jail are recorded, and prosecutors routinely listen to them to see if people might make incriminating statements.  Also, do not speak with other inmates about your case.  Jails are filled with snitches that will try to use your statements to help them gain an advantage in their own case.  Defense of these cases involve collection of evidence already in existence with the government, the strategic taking of depositions, an analysis of any and all possible defenses, the filing of motions in an attempt to suppress evidence or dismiss the charges and if necessary the trial of the case.  In the event that overwhelming evidence exists, it is important that your attorney be able to effectively negotiate the best possible outcome for you.

Call Mark Zimmerman at 941-364-8503 to schedule an immediate and free consultation regarding your case.
