Entrapment?Edit

Isn't this kind of sting banned as 'entrapment' in some jurisdictions? Why is it legal in D.C.? --InfantGorilla (talk) 08:18, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

IANAL, but I thought if the undercover cop propositioned the john, then it was entrapment. If the john propositions the undercover cop, then it is a good bust (no pun intended). --SVTCobra 08:34, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for explaining. I think I would be an irritating juror. --InfantGorilla (talk) 10:45, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

At least you got the Officer information correct. Some of the other reports posted state it was an Agent and it was in fact, as you reported, a Secret Service Officer. There is a major difference between a Secret Service Uniformed Division Officer and a Special Agent for the Secret Service.

Thanks for keeping the story straight. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.16.80.238 (talk) 21:45, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

U.S. Marshals and former judge Edward NottinghamEdit

The U.S. Marshals provide after hours security to U.S. judges. Some judges have been given around-the-clock protective details by deputy marshals. Terry Frieden CNN Judges Fearing For Their Lives

Former judge Edward Nottingham was so drunk at a strip club on 9/05/05 that he couldn't remember how he spent $3,000. The Marshals must have been driving him. A prostitute said she had weekly paid sex w Nottingham for 22 months. A driver for a brothel said he delivered prostitutes to Nottingham's, or his son's condo, at least eight times and prostitutes were also delivered to an unidentified location, possibly the federal court house, for appointments with Nottingham. Edward Nottingham The Marshals must have covered up for Nottingham. It just makes you wonder what the Marshals might have done with the prostitutes and strippers.
