Canada and England have Sex Offender Registries. The U. S. is the only country giving citizens access to their identity and location via the Internet. This Clinton-era federal initiative in the State of Maine has resulted in sex offenders being murdered and the male population of entire towns in the grip of over-zealous prosecutors, arresting dozens of men for non-existent sex crimes while securing no convictions. This book relates the experience of a man snared in a whirlwind of sex offender hysteria in a state that is aging, conservative, poor and reluctant to accept social change. This may be the clearest example in American history of a provable "railroad job" in a criminal trial. The book reproduces actual documents and trial transcripts to demonstrate conclusively how core American values like due process under law and respect for civil rights can be burned away through perjured testimony and manipulated evidence. When the goal is "conviction at any price," it's poorly-trained police officers and their computer labs, prosecutors, judges - - even defense attorneys - - who bare too much of themselves in this brutally honest book. ABOUT THE AUTHOR A graduate of the University of Maine with advanced studies in English Literature, Jim Logan (now 71) moved from Maine to New York in 1966. That move accompanied a "great awakening" to liberal social values that included sexual experiences that Jim wrote about with fictional flourish. Decades later his hand-written 500-page manuscript, which Jim imagined might one day become the "Great American Novel," instead fell into the hands of police officers and prosecutors with their own notions of literary interpretation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An insightful and eye opening true story 6. März 2012
Von Steven Kreg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Yikes! This book makes me afraid to download porn on my computer! This guy brings his computer in for repair and gets busted for having illegal pics. But the story is way more complicated. I liked the way every step the police took was explained and documented. The author must have spent years piecing all this together. The computer repair guy ends up lying his head off on the witness stand. The cops lie. The D.A. cleverly pushes the lies along. The judge helps by issuing crazy rulings. Even his own lawyers slide along with the kangaroo job. It really is just an amazing true story. This is not a light read. It's a challenge to figure out all the laws involved with this topic, and if a reader is squeamish about sex, this book is not for you, even though it's not X-Rated. The author also shows how the legal statutes have changed over time. Today there are big conflicts between State laws, Federal laws, and Supreme Court rulings, which the book demonstrates. It also shows what a colossal phony Dartmouth Professor Hany Farid is (he's called "The Father of Digital Forensics" when featured in a Nova program), testifying in cases where he claims to be able to do something that's impossible. He basically sells his reputation for money and sends people to jail on false pretenses. Also, the author shows how the so-called treatment programs for sex offenders operate. It reminds me of the movie Snakepit. I recommend this book especially for anyone interested in the subject of sex offenders and child pornography and for those wondering how totally innocent people can wind up convicted of serious crimes.
