It goes to motive my friends. You can't just say it is fact that a man's intention is to rape a woman because he follows her down a sidewalk or an aisle in a store. Not even if he makes any comments to her.
HAVE TO PROVE INTENT.
He's not once denied that he attempted to lure the girl into his truck. He did not have the permission from her parents to do so. Even the judge questioned his mental competency.

" (720 ILCS 5/10-5)(from Ch. 38, par. 10-5)
(Text of Section from P.A. 97-160)

Intentionally lures or attempts to lure a child

under the age of 16 into a motor vehicle, building, housetrailer, or dwelling place without the consent of the child's parent or lawful custodian for other than a lawful purpose. For the purposes of this item (10), the trier of fact may infer that luring or attempted luring of a child under the age of 16 into a motor vehicle, building, housetrailer, or dwelling place without the express consent of the child's parent or lawful custodian or with the intent to avoid the express consent of the child's parent or lawful custodian was for other than a lawful purpose.

So it seems that everyone and their brother and mother knows and apparently has known that thois George Smith was, is and will continue to be a great danger to the children of the community. Is that right?

Because if this is right, then why has he lived in town for so God awful long as this ominous threat without any previous police involvement, no police investigation, no previous complaints from a single citizen?

I'll tell you why. Because none of those things happened. If any of those things did happen then we would know about it from postings right here on this shit site filled with people who (think they) know every fact about everyone else's business.

That is what this site is - a virtual cesspool of losers. Every thread is started to bash others, insult, ridicule or harass. Longtime trademarks of losers, idiots and imbeciles. No wonder why so many jump on the bandwagon.

So if everyone knew so much about this George being a threat to children then why did you bite your tongues and allow the children to be at such risk? Seems by not saying anything that you too bear some responsibility.

This isn't his first run-in with the law. If you check the Will County Court website, you will see that there are other.

Maybe as he ages, his mental state has changed?

Even the judge has questioned his mental status.

I keep seeing the word "lure" being used.

Can anyone say as fact that he offered the girl candy, or money, or anything that could be construed as a lure (I.e. bait). Anything to entice her?

He is a danger to children in this community I don't care how you slice it. Maybe if he tried to solicit your young daughter you might feel differently! I am amazed at the lack of concern some people have over this. And we ain't living in Mayberry RFD. Get people like this off the streets before thy do real damage.

Mr. Smith will be enjoying a nice turkey dinner on Thanksgiving with friends and family. I expect the charges will be dropped tomorrow and apologies issued to him.

Things aren't looking so good for your buddy. He should have thought about the consequences before he tried to get a young girl into his truck.

It just a matter of time before all the charges are dropped. George is a true hero and there is nothing that the powers at hand can do, this fraudulent charge is a waste of taxpayers money. You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? I have serious doubts that this case will ever make it to trial.

The judge pretty much told the prosecution team that they have a weak case and that if they don't produce concrete evidence by the the next court date the case will be dropped.
