Thanks. Unfortunately in New York there isn't really a lesser offense he could plead to that does not involve registration because it involves solicitation of a minor. His only chance of not registering is fighting and beating the charges at trial (although it is very difficult to beat charges of this type because the chats are usually recorded). He should get a lawyer if he hasn't gotten one yet to try to work out a good plea deal for him, but unfortunately he will most likely have to register. Sorry I can't give you better news.
