how did he keep his marriage together for so long?
there are other postings from former co workers about how he acted for all these years then he does this..........
Who knows? The girls; however based on what I observed he was not interested in his marriage. Lining his pockets while doing as little work as possible were foremost. I suppose the last straw (I am sure there were several straws before that) was the dateline sting operation.
His wife, a pediatric oncologist, didn't need him for anything and essentially dumped him. Good for her. LLDY

California Appellate Court Overturns Craigslist Sex Sting Conviction

In what seems to be a huge victory for people surfing the internet, the Fourth District Court of Appeal in Santa Ana, California just overturned a conviction for a man who was caught in an internet sting by Huntington Beach Police. Gregory Aguirre, 53 of El Monte was arrested after he arrived at a Carl’s Jr. restaurant to meet a fictitious 13-year-old girl for sex in 2010.

Aguirre was charged with three felony counts, PC 288.4(b), Meeting a Minor to Commit Lewd Conduct, PC 664(a)-28(a)- Attempt Lewd Act on a Minor, and PC288.3(a) Luring of a Child with Intent to Commit Specified Crime.

The ad placed by Huntington Beach Police Department investigators read,“Hi wanta play with me2nite---w4m (hb).” Aguirre along with 100 other people responded to the ad. The officers replied to the responders by adding “Hi Im Jess, Im 13 yrs old and looking to make some $ in exchange for stuff.” Aguirre and “Jess” continued corresponding, including sexually explicit exchanges.

Law enforcement then set up a meeting at a Carl’s Jr in Huntington Beach. When Aguirre arrived, he was immediately arrested. When he was interviewed, Aguirre said he went to the Carl’s Jr to meet “Jess” and engage in sexual intercourse. Aguirre had condoms with him. In addition, Aguirre told officers he really didn’t believe “Jess” was a minor.

Aguirre went to trial and was convicted. He neither requested nor was he given an entrapment instruction for the jury. The court of appeal stated in their opinion “The police lured defendant into an electronic conversation with Jess without providing any indication at the outset that she was underage….The police quickly disclosed Jess was 13 years old once defendant contacted her, but in response to defendant’s request for a picture of Jess, the police selected a photograph of an attractive and mature female body.”

The court further stated,“Our overview of the record suggests a reasonable jury could find that the police conduct would illegitimately ensnare normally law-abiding individuals in an illegal conversation they would not have otherwise pursued. In sum, the jury might have believed the conduct of the police was likely to induce a normally law-abiding person to commit some or all of the charged crimes. We therefore reverse the judgment.”

It must be noted that Aguirre’s computer was seized and there was no evidence of any child pornography on his computer, furthering the justices opinion that Aguirre was just that a law abiding person who got trapped by police conduct.

The most meaningful development for me personally from this thread was that at least one person read this:

Good night, all! Happy entrapping!
I still think it's a good read.

While I've had one short story published, you're ahead of me in that you have a book completed.

I can't remember how I first found this forum but it's been hugely enjoyable overall. The different perspectives offered by the participants, the legal debates especially, and the idea that we may have unintentionally been a "defense strategy focus group" gave this experience extra meaning for me.

I'm sure there's more I could say but I don't write well under time pressure and I really need to get ready for work.

In a story I wrote years ago one of my characters said we're changed by the people we meet in life, and this forum proved that point amply.

That's because you guys were wrong - it WAS entrapment - and now all you can do is troll.

Bob! Welcome back.

You and the sock puppets are the only ones left believing that it was entrapment. Maybe that is what MoWo will have written on his tombstone -- "It WAS entrapment." That would be very funny.

By now your words sound too much like whining. It was not entrapment, but even if it had been, MoWo lost, and lost miserably. There is no red-trial. There is no appeal. Get over it.

It is surprising that he obstinately remains in the US where his imbecility is visible to anyone who cares to look.

I believe his presence is an inescapable embarrassment to his innocent family. And while it is generally true that his daughters need a father, the question remains whether they need this particular one – being that he is a convicted felon, a registered sex offender.

There are many very funny epitahs for MoWo; Think of Me While You Masturbate?? What other country would accept him? He is still arrogant and an imbecile (Bob!!) I doubt MoWo has a legal passport. His profile would be readily available if he tried to re-enter Canada. He is the terrorist of love. Canada doesn't like felons or terrorists. He has a challenge and all of his own doing.

The family of The Great Doctor Wolin is a family blessed by God. They have stayed together by the grace of God. Shame on you for suggesting that this family should be broken up.

No, she did not "dump" him. They are together and theirs is a loving union blessed by Almighty God.

I am appalled by your recalcitrance. You and your children will live longer lives because of the accomplishments of The Great Doctor Wolin.

The chat is at about page 190 or so. Take a look. They did the same thing to Wolin and even talked him into showing up when he didn't.

Do you have any idea what is going on here? It seems as if someone let rabid animals out to play. MoWo is a pedophile. End of story. LLDY
