    All that is wrong with our legal system

    A judge has actually considered dropping charges against a former child sex prosecuter from Mobile because...well, you'll see.

    Well, to a point I do see their argument. If the photo was never produced, there's nothing there to be "obscene."


    BUT...with that said, he OBVIOUSLY needs to be charged with a crime. Can't he be charged with some sort of "attempt" crime? Attempted Enticement or whatever their applicable laws are?

    I think the intent of asking for the pics are clear. The lawyer is trying to exploit it as a gray area though.

    I'd have to look it up, but it's already been addressed higher up about soliciting a minor that is actually a LEO. No hope for him there.


    edit*
    The undercover agent is also covered by Alabama law under 13A-6-127:
    (a) It shall not be a defense to prosecution under this article:

    (1) That an undercover operative or law enforcement officer was involved in the detection and investigation of an offense; or
    .......

    The enticing is covered under
    Section 13A-6-122
    Electronic solicitation of a child.
    And it's a Class B Felony which is 2 - 20 years

    If I'm correct, what I read in the paper the other day stated that the judge was considering dropping the charge of Enticing a Child. My problem with this is, that it could have serious repercussions in similar cases in the future. What are authorities supposed to do to catch these bastards? Actually have a child sitting at the computer in place of a LEO??

    On top of that, this is a former prosecutor of child porn. He should get NO leway!!

    Not an attempt to defend this scum -- but a point to ponder...

    How would that be different than, say, stopping someone for an obvious and irrefutable traffic offense... and not giving them a ticket because they're a cop?

    One is a traffic infraction I let lots of people go for including lawyers.

    The other is a felony that should result in your manhood being physically severed from your body, whether you are a cop or a lawyer.

    The difference I see is one is a minor offense and the other is a major crime (or attempted crime I guess) against a person.
