# there was a programme on once (i forget it's name)
where someone pretended to be a young girl/boy and meet up with a paedophile,
the paedophile would come round, then that ^ man would come in and tell them
what had happened, which was funny funny funny, and then they'd get arrested usually.

# Despite the fact that by talking to an adult they hadn't actually committed a crime.
What are they like eh?

# but they thought they were talking to a kid
so it's 'attempted'.

# Well I imagine it America it is, but with the majority of other legal systems that's not how the law works.
For instance if you steal something but then the person says they have given it to you or that it was in fact one of your own possessions you somehow implausibly stole, you don't then get arrested for 'attempted' theft. Attempted crimes are in failing to commit the actual crime, not having no crime to begin with BECAUSE IT WASN'T A CHILD!

Otherwise that would mean if someone tells you they are 15, but are actually 16, then when you have sex with them you've broken the law. Which is just stupid.

# intent
would be enough in most courts of law

or shamen's huts

# The intent argument doesn't really work when it is also entrapment though.
I mean then you don't really have the intent, or the conscious commital of a crime.

# hmm
by which i mean, that's why it's a tv show, not court papers

# It is entrapment
up until one moment...
The show I saw... Just before he is busted, the perp hands over alcohol (some beers) that the 'victim' has requested.
Then it's giving alcohol to minors =$4000 fine and year in jail. Which instantly makes entrapment a very difficult call.

# actually
they may have done.

heard a case of a former police chief who got stung in a similar manner (but by a police force)and the charge they got him on was crossing state lines to have sex with a minor (the "girl" involved was 5, and in conversations with the "mother" the bloke claimed to have experience with children that young) he topped himself before the case went to court

# One of the funniest shows i've seen
Plus some of the excuses they come up with are great:
"Am, I only came over her to tell her that I wasn't going to come over here"
Say what now?
