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.
These provisions have extra-territorial effect in relation to the location of the adult or the child, by the use of the words 'either in Queensland or elsewhere'.
The maximum penalty provided is five years imprisonment.
In 48 per cent of cases the adult suspect was arrested at the intended rendezvous with the child.
Various facilities are available to search out others with similar backgrounds or interests.
However, a maximum penalty of 10 years applies if the child is, or is believed by the adult to be, less than 12 years of age.
In March 2002, Queensland Police began an undercover operation against a person whom they had discovered in a chat room seeking underage girls for sex.
In 76 per cent of cases the suspect was arrested for an offence within one month of the first online contact.
In 68 per cent of cases the adult sought offline contact with the child.
