In order to commit a crime such as soliciting a minor, you have to have the "mens rea", or guilty mind --essentially, you must have the intent to solicit them knowing they are a minor.

Charles Pugh’s behavior with a teenage boy more than a decade ago was “strikingly similar” to encounters he had with other young men, prosecutors have said.
During a court hearing today, a judge ruled that three men, who prosecutors contend were groomed by Pugh and solicited for sexual purposes when they were teens, will be able to testify in the upcoming trial of the former Detroit City Council president and ex-TV anchor.
The alleged encounters occurred in January and March and were reported by a family member of the now-16-year-old complainant, who resides in the Brighton area.
He allegedly targeted high school teenagers and used his celebrity status, mentoring program and opportunity for jobs to get parental consent to be with the teenagers then allegedly used that consent to commit sexual offenses against minors or young adults.“In each of these cases, there’s a proposition to a young adult in high school to have sexual contact,” Cameron said, adding that Pugh also allegedly asked for pornographic videos or pictures. 7 in the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice, has been charged in one case.Search results are sorted by a combination of factors to give you a set of choices in response to your search criteria.These factors are similar to those you might use to determine which business to select from a local Yellow Pages directory, including proximity to where you are searching, expertise in the specific services or products you need, and comprehensive business information to help evaluate a business's suitability for you.It was just a chat line free trial - anyone could participate via profile'sit was for phone sex - no personal information was given outno addresses or phone numbers or names etc - nothing happened as far as the phone sex - and the person seemed more concerned about her phone bill - and the chat line said it was all the other peoples fault not theirs - they do have a 18 disclaimer before you get on the line - it it a dating what ever line - like a party line Thank you for your reply.I apologize for the delay in responding, my internet connection keeps going out.
