SUMMARY:

The FBI instituted an undercover operation that was designed to stop U.S. sex tourists before departing from the United States. The undercover operation consisted of a fake travel agency ("Costa Rica Taboo Ventures") that offered to match travelers with "tourist companions" ages 14 through 27 in Costa Rica. The defendant, an arborist from Florida, sent a letter to the agency requesting information, and eventually requested the services of a 14- and 16-year-old female. The defendant agreed to pay at least $425 for such services. The defendant was arrested when he boarded a flight to Costa Rica. Eleven other defendants were arrested in connection with the investigation.
