A few days ago I posted my reply to Cliff who left a comment about his nephew who was arrested and later acquitted for buying sex with a child.
Here's an additional reply from an undercover investigator:
I read the [comment] and I think he [Cliff] may only be getting half the story. There are many reasons the state attorney or a judge may drop a case and many times it has nothing to do with the facts of the case. That is a much longer story and issue.
Every case I have investigated, it is very clear the individual is traveling to have sex with a minor or any age. I don’t trick or hide the fact it is a child or throw it in the mix half way through. We don’t beg; we don’t pressure. If anything we try to turn them away in many cases, giving them many chances in a lot of cases to change their minds.
If he feels like just because his nephew was young and fell into a trap, I am sorry for him. But I will not apologize to someone who is willing to have sex with a child just because they cannot control their sexual urges. If he thinks that is ok and should be excused then he has bigger issues than I can fix in an email or a blog response.
And more from another investigator:
Guilty men go free every day due to technicalities, lost evidence, crafty attorney work, etc. Being innocent and and NOT being found guilty are two very separate things.

I encourage you to read Lacey's excellent comment here (scroll to end). And to leave one of your own.
