AOL- dirt bags like this one shows that even with education people can steal be a real sleeze. You know you should contact the DA office in Petaluma where he was arrested and let them know this also contests to his charcter - a real dirt bag.

P.I I hope that they take is Medical Liscense.

That would also have been illegal in the U.S. In fact, they post video tapes and pictures of men who try to solicit prostitutes (actually scantily clad decoy policy officers.) Meanwhile, someone can rob or badly beat up someone and not receive the same coverage. If there was a place these guys could go to get it from a pro we wouldn't have as many of these kinds of problems.

I think you're very ignorant to the fact that every one desearves the right to counsel and due process of law. We live under the rule of law which means due process. Attorneys are much needed and do this great land a great service. Think about it..if you can think.
I agree with Edward, I think that the good Dr. has rights and should get his day in court. Many men and women have died to protect the rights of our citizens and it is an insult to them that Dr. W be deprived of this right. However he was clearly wrong and will suffer the fate of his crimes. Scott I don't like what he did anymore then you and I believe he should pay. However it should be by the book. You sounded off with several points without thinking them through.

This is America! We put people in jail for far less severe crimes than this. For example, the cancer patients we put in jail for smoking pot (and other non-violent types who are harming absolutely nobody.)

In contrast, most of the online predators usually get away with it. This is the problem with spending our judicial resources on stupid crimes like pot.

Then the more serious crimes that outrage our society like Mo, don't receive the kind of attention they should. In addition, the juries are less likely to convict if they have been busted on some frivilous crime: marijuana, prostitution, or my favorite gambling (LOL, they actually put people in jail for gambling in some states! ROFL!)

I sent an email to the corporate ethics department and the board of directors at Maurice Wolins empolyer. He works for a Pharmacutical company in Canada called QLT. He's a Vice President of somthing or other. I'm not sure if they get Dateline up there in Canada, so figured they should know they have a Vice President of Statutory Rape. I feel bad for his wife, She's some sort of fitness/nutrition author:

He has been banned from practicing medicine in California, but that doesn't mean much. It seems he's involved in research, not seeing patients and therefore doesn't exactly practice medicine.

That would be a nightmare being married to that guy. One minute you're leading a life of luxury, the next everyone's spitting in your face.

Dr Wollin is a complete sicko, but I still feel sorry for his family. They must be going through hell.

Maurice Wolin is whay some may call a serial predator. He has much time wasted trying to get laid on the internet. Maybe if his wife spent more time giving him some ass & b/J instead of writing books all the time he'd stop looking for ass on the internet.

From he phote on web sight she looks as if she has no time to suck him off or give him ass.

maybe he should have beat his meat

whatever..I saw the Dateline video. It was absolutely shameless how they and the police department set this guy up, the girl literally begging him to come see her. Only in America, where legislative law replaces natural law, is something like this demonized by self-righteous fools like you and NBC and the government. There is absolutely nothing "evil" about having mutual consenting sex with a so-called "underage" girl. Get off your high horse. Think about your own sin, your own sex life, before you ridicule and condemn those of others. If youre so self-righteous, i suggest you take a vow of celibacy and head to the monastery, for a lifetime of devotion to the Truth. Otherwhise, you have no right condemning anyone else.

And that goes for the rest of you too. LEt he who is without sin cast the first stone. Guy is simply trying to enjoy intimacy with someone else, regardless of age, and there is nothing wrong with it if she consents. Most 13 year old girls know more than you think. The idea that these "evil" men are "preying" on "helpless" "underage" girls is just heinous, putting women in to a victim role even at a young age. It's absurd, all of you are absurd, and should be ashamed of yourselves. Like i said, if youre so damn religious, join a convent. Otherwhise, shut your mouths.

Hey Anonymous:
If that's what you believe, why don't you identify yourself? Why don't you go public with your views?
Let all of your friends and family members know how you feel.
Maybe we can change the law for you and other perverts that want sex to have sex with a child.
About Natural Law? Do you find it "natural" to have sex with kids? It doesn't matter. It's illegal in this country and If you don't like the law, LEAVE!!!

Dr. Maurice Wolin is married , so it is the wife that must provide the needed sexual extacy that he was lerking on the internet for. She should have spent more time giving him ass and b/j - it she did he would not have to go to the internet

Obviously he's not interested in his wife. He wants sex with kids. She probably did give him sex but since he's a PERVERT, he wanted it more--and from a kid.

In spite of the gravity of his intent to meet a minor his lack of judgement in this matter points to a terrible character flaw. He should have exercised self-control and having full awareness of his proclivities for minors he should have sought counselling years ago since he knew he had a compulsion that was overtaking his sound judgement in the matter. Somewhat as Dr. Jekyll knowing he had Mr. Hyde within and doing his utmost to control him so as to save himself from his own baser instincts. Alas, he had feet of clay too. Had the TV/police not been a party to this unfortunate meeting to which we have all been witnesses it is evident he would have perverted or attempted to pervert the mind of a child by what he intended to do. He would have interfered with the normal social interactions of a child of that age within its own social milieux. An immature youth is not fully cognizant of his motivations or desires nor has he weighed the repurcussions of his actions. This is why it was wrong for him to be there in the first place. It is a more grevious error because of his stature in the community as an intellectual-a married physician with children himself who also swears the Hippocratic oath and swears to do no harm.

Anonymous, you are a moron.
THE GIRL begged him? Give me a break! THE GIRL is an immature child. Who is the ADULT ONLINE STALKER in this situation? WHY THE HELL was he online stalking for a 13 year old?
What were his intentions when he drove 2 and a half hours NORTH of Peidmont where he lives, to Petaluma to meet a CHILD??? Let me repeat, you moron,* A CHILD *!!!!!!!!!

Someone needs to pull Maurice Wolin's children from the home. 2 girls age 7 and 9 are probably being molested by him on a daily basis. Molesters can't stop. Predators can't stop.....they prey on anyone, at anytime, at any risk.
Hence, he finally got caught.

I also emailed QLT, both in Colorado and Canada and the VP emailed me back and said he did not work at the company. Maurice Wolin also worked at Chiron (now Chiron Novartis) in California.
This animal needs some jail time.

His wife needs to pack those abused children up and move now, or the state needs to step in and seize more than his computer.

Bottom line is that he is a married man. He has a wife and daughters. He carried on a sexually-explicit conversation with another female (in this case, a 13-year-old girl). Then he showed up ready to carry through with his chat. In that chat, he made it real clear what he wanted to do. Another poster has said she met him for real before this episode airs, and that he wanted to have sex with her in a motel.

He is a scumbag and, like others here, I feel bad for his family. He's not the only one who will pay for this....his wife and daughters will, too. There is no justification for what he's done, and it's especially disturbing to see doctors doing this. They're supposed to be mature pillars of the community, not sexual predators.

As for the liberals who think age shouldn't matter, the law recognizes that a 13-year-old is not emotionally mature enough to make a decision like this, and is easily swayed. That's why it's against the law.
