What is Luring?

Luring refers to the act of using the internet or other forms of digital communication to communicate with a child or young person for the purpose of committing a sexual offence.

Pursuant to the Criminal Code, it is illegal to communicate with a person under the age of 18 for the purpose of engaging in a sexual act, or to facilitate such an act. The penalties for luring can range from fines to imprisonment, depending on the severity of the offence.

Luring can take many different forms, including online chats, social media messages, email, and phone calls. It is a serious offence that can have devastating consequences for both the victim and the offender. If you suspect that someone may be engaging in luring behaviour, you should report it to the police immediately.

I am Facing Luring Charges, What Should I do?

If you have been arrested or charged with luring, it’s essential that you exercise your right to remain silent and do not speak to the police or anyone else about your case. Anything you say could be used against you in court, so it’s important to be cautious and seek legal advice before making any statements.

If you are facing a luring charge, the first thing you should do is seek legal advice from an experienced criminal lawyer. Your lawyer can help you understand the charges against you, review the evidence that the Crown has, and develop a defense strategy that can help you achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
