Child Enticement Defense Considerations
The broad definition for child enticement makes it possible to make this charge against people for a wide variety of actions that may not have criminal intent. The prosecution has the burden to prove intent to harm the victim in these cases.
The charge of child abuse carries considerable social stigma. Prosecutors are under considerable pressure from the public to pursue charges of crimes against children and are highly motivated to seek convictions for these charges.
Child enticement cases can be complex due to the use of the testimony of children. Prosecutors can often induce the testimony of a child in a manner that benefits their case. The social stigma associated with harming children can lower the threshold of proof in the minds of jurors.
