That if Foley did commit a crime, he will likely be prosecuted by the terms laid out in his own overly vague, heavy-handed, and clumsy Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act:
If charges are leveled, they’ll likely be based on broad legislation inked by the man himself. It’s a safe bet that any law with a kid’s name in it will overreach, and the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act is no exception. The law, a hodgepodge of a response to MySpace panic, strikes at everything from hawking “date rape drugs” over the tubes to the use of “misleading domain names.” It penalizes the solicitation of all minors—everyone under 18—despite the fact that the age of consent is two years lower in most states. Merely channeling an invitation through the magic of fiberoptic cables is a federal crime.
Your government, hard at work, keeping your kid’s safe- from government employees. I guess these guys thought federalism meant the federal government should be involved in everything.
