Mr. Hancock handles serious Internet sex crime investigations involving:

Undercover Sting Operations and Internet Sex Crimes
Most Internet crime investigations involve an undercover sting operation, where the accused offenders get arrested when they go to meet the “child.” Shows like Dateline and “To Catch a Predator” have increased the popularity of these operations and often leave defendants in cases of borderline entrapment. Mr. Hancock will take an aggressive approach to protect your rights throughout the investigation and trial, including determining whether entrapment can be used as a defense.
Internet crimes often require extensive investigation to defend. At our law firm, we take a comprehensive approach that scrutinizes evidence involving what was said to whom, whether the undercover cop provided an age, and which party introduced the idea of a meeting. All of these facts will play an important role in whether your case can be dismissed.
Protecting Your Fourth Amendment Rights
You have Fourth Amendment rights that could be potentially violated during an undercover sting operation. Whether your person, office, home computer or cellphone was under surveillance, you have the right to challenge evidence unlawfully obtained against you.
Patrick Hancock will review police records leading up to your arrest and wage an aggressive defense to ensure that your constitutional rights were not trodden upon in the process of an investigation or arrest. Learn more by calling 210-223-8844.
