Adult roleplay chatrooms
At the time of the investigation, section 218A of the Criminal Code (Qld) was not in force; however, other offences subsequently came to light.Police received a complaint of sexual abuse which occurred in another state upon a 14-year-old female victim who had met her abuser on the internet.They use computers at home, at friends' places, at the library and at school to work, play and communicate.Some have net connectivity on portable devices such as mobile phones.One way is for the police to pretend to be children in online spaces and wait for the predators to come to them.
The results of this study show the aggressive and rapid way that children are targeted by adults for sexual purposes.
A police officer, posing as a 14-year-old girl, was asked by S to meet with him in Brisbane so that he could photograph her nude and have sex with her.
In conversations between S and the undercover police officer, S claimed to have photographed underage girls in the nude and to have some 66,000 images.
The provision makes it an offence for an adult to use electronic communication (such as email, internet chat rooms, SMS messages, real time audio/video or other similar communication) with the intention of procuring a person under the age of 16 years (or whom the adult believes to be under 16 years) to engage in a sexual act.
The definition of sexual intercourse is specifically not limited to acts involving physical contact.
