There was no attempt of a crime against a child, the man was only trying to be a good person and offered the child some assistance.
That's right there was no attempt of a crime. Successful prosecutions require the proof of intent and in this case there was not even a shred of evidence to support intent.(sorry haters - who have no life)

Furthermore in speaking with some of the local prosecutors, it was said that this is a very obscure law that very few people realize even exists. Though ignorance of such an unknown law isn't necessarily any sort of excuse, it does make it clear that this man had no idea he was doing the slightest thing wrong and in all likelihood had nothing but good intentions.(this point will be very hard for the subsequent posters to believe let alone understand - because they are shallow, lonely and bitter people....I.e. haters)

Sounds like he was acting irrationally in the beginning for the judge to issue a hearing on his mental status.

The gentleman is 65 years old, give him a break. I think I would be a little worked-up also if I tried to some good and was wrongfully arrested for it and had people trying to railroad me.

All tests came back with results as normal.

Adult men should not be trying to lure young girls that they don't know into vehicles. What is this the 1920s and she had never seen car ? Thankfully this young lady was smart enough to flee.

This comment falls right in line with so many of the haters posting on this thread. Ignorant, assinine and immature.

There is a pretty obvious difference between OFFERING A RIDE to a child and LURING A CHILD.

OFFERING would be just that, "Hey, Would you like a ride?"

LURING would be, "Hey. Do you want some candy? Come on in here and I'll give you some candy."

Not knowing the meaning of the words you choose to use ties you directly to ignorance.

Just being you ties you to immature and assinine.

Not a hater

I agree with your statement, but this case has been fought in the Will County Circuit Court for almost a year now. If it were as innocent as someone offering a child a ride; the case would have been dismissed a long time ago. I'm not saying the man is guilty or not, just that there probably is enough evidence to support the charge of Attempted Child Abduction against the man and the case will eventually go to trial.

Rational from Plainfield ...I wonder what you would do if some old guy offered, multiple times, to give your twelve year old daughter a ride when she didn't know him...? Run crying to the police the and anyone else that would listen would be my best guess. Fortunately she was able to ID the guy...
There are Child Predators all around in in many shapes sizes colors ages and genders. I hope for your sake you never have to wonder or worry about if your kid gets home safely from a walk on a nice sunny day.

George and his supporters also said that he did it because it was cold an snowy.

I guess that they never thought that the internet has weather sites that track this kind of data.

It kind of blew a hole in that when it was confirmed that it wasn't the case.

I think it is time for all the negative posters to take a good look in the mirror. They come here, post, and want to act like they are all about children. Protectors of children. Watchdogs of children. Helping children all the time. At every opportunity.

I call bullshit on these weasels.

They are just political penises. They want to attack, judge and convict this guy here in this gutter level "court". This court where it is always about the negatives. Where lowlifes come to bash those they envy, disagree with or are jealous of.

I ask you finger pointers...

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO HELP KIDS?

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO PROTECT CHILDRN?

All of a sudden this guy is facing an accusation and you jump to the front of the finger pointing line.

If you dare accuse so strongly why do you hide so strongly?

That alone shows you r not very upstanding yourselves.

If you want to accuse then post under your REAL NAMES.

Because if you want to say he broke the law then stick by the laws - OR PROVE YOURSELVES COWARDLY.

Because the law says the accused have the right to face their accusers.

FIRST COWARD KINDLY STEP UP BY POSTING WITHOUT YOUR REAL NAME.

And before the first pinhead tries to ask why I haven't posted my name....

DUH!!! I'm not accusing anyone of a crime!

George Smith is eventually going to jail where he will most likely find out what it's like to be stalked and abused. Someone will probably spit his backdoor hole wide open.
