This paper discusses how, although criminals have been escaping justice on the basis of technicalities for decades, when it comes to sexual predators of children using the Internet, some judges are blazing new trails into the terrain of protecting the criminals and punishing the victims, diminishing the results of police work, as well. It looks at the growing need for anti-pedophilia laws concerning the Internet and the surrounding issues, such as the First Amendment and freedom of speech.

From the Paper:

"While some judges and lawmakers are worried about protecting the First Amendment rights of pedophiles, so they can continue to lure their intended victims over the Internet, the population seems to desire even stronger anti-pedophilia laws concerning the Internet.
By 2002, 40 million children were assumed to have Internet access. "The Internet is a dream come true for a pedophile," said Arlington County, (Va.) police Detective Paul J. Reid. "It takes the playground from the street and puts it into their home where they can cultivate victims in privacy." (Fagan 1997)"
