Agreed I guess, I have addicted friends and it's a sad life they live. From their point of view they seem to get as much attention as they could ever want, but from the outside they're sad shut-ins who never tag along to the movies or out for a drive or anything else for that matter.

Ok while I dont agree with her doing this. How do I not commit a crime in another country, but get arrested when I am back home for a crime. Its like gambling in Vegas and having the local cop arrest you for it when you get home. Or going to a prositute in Amsterdam, and then get brought up on charges when you get back. Can someone explain it to me, because I am just not getting it.

The enticement originated in Texas so that's where she crossed the legal line. Sounds like a lot of people dropped the ball on parenting this kid. They both need help.

As for people cheering, what if it was a 42yo man enticing a 16yo girl? People would talk about much of a perversion of the 42yo man.

IANAL, but my guess is that she probably wasn't arrested for meeting with the boy in Canada, but for the sex chat and messages exchanged while she was in Texas. Just a guess here.

The way I read it, she was arrested on the flight back home, not after she got back home. So technically, she was in US airspace and still in the US. Now the reason that she was arrested, is because while what she did was not illegal in her home country, it was illegal in the country that the activity took place in (the US). Example: If you are from a country where pot is illegal and go to a country where pot is legal, and buy it, you have done nothing wrong since the actions were legal where they took place (we're assuming that you buy it and then smoke it and do not cross any borders with it). However, if you live in a country where pot is legal and travel to a country where it is illegal, then you can face charges in that country since you broke that countrys law(s).

One thing the article mentioned, and didn't fully clarify, was that the boy lied about his age. He said he was 20 years old. Did the woman know he was only 16? Furthermore, how does one actually go about verifying the age of somebody they are talking to online?

I'm not a law-expert by any stretch of the imagination, but how would a trial go in something like this?

Though she met the boy in Canada, she did commit a crime in Texas. She contributed to the deliquency of a minor, lewd conduct (sex chats), etc. etc. It's just the same as if she were to gamble online (with a Vegas casino), or solicit an Amsterdam prostite online, from Texas.

Bottom line though, she just pissed people off and they found a way to lock her up.

Both of them may be extremely sad cases, but I can't see blaming HER for the failures of HIS parents, nor for HIS disobedience when they said "No." "Ask your parents" may have been unreasonable, but it doesn't sound like criminal wrongdoing. Her intentions may have been outside the bounds of typical Christian pseudo-morality, but that also doesn't make them wrong; I'm not sure whose rights were being violated here, even if some poor decisions were made.

ewoodnot if you dont buy it and smoke it in that country you cant... she didnt bring the kid back with her.



First, she did take the kid with her. They were spotted at a FUTURE SHOP. Future shop is the Canadian equivalent of Best Buy (and owned by them as well). Since the store ONLY exist in Canada, there is no way that they could have been spotted at one in the US, so she MUST have taken, or enticed the boy to go to Canada with her. The Canadian govt only said that since it was not illegal in Canada (since 16 is age of consent), that they would not press further charges. Had the boy been 15, she would probably have been charged in both the US and Canada since they were in both countries.

The way the story reads, it says she was arrested on (during) the flight back home, which means she must have still been within the US since it would otherwise require extradition by the Canadian govt.

And as for my last sentence, I was implying that if you bought it in that country, not if you just traveled. If that were the case, people would be getting arrested all the time for something they did in other countries.

Yikes! Well I'm glad his parents were smart enough to know that this was an unhealthy relationship for their son. I think it sucks for the woman that the kid lied to her about being 20 (legal age) and she gets thrown in jail while the kid receives no punishment. Although I'm sure the kid will be grounded from WoW permanently, or at least until he moves out. Either way I'm still glad she got thrown in jail. 42-year old woman preying is what it really sounds like to me. I don't think this even falls into the cougar-pup category...

I certainly don't wish to imply that she acted reasonably, or that the situation isn't really unfortunate, but I don't yet see where a crime was commited.

side note....when I was 16 or 17 this same thing happened to my best friend when he was addicted to playing an mmorpg called T4C (the forth coming). I remember the woman was from the states and was just over 40 (big fat ugly woman to boot). they never went as far as to meet, but i remember how mad he got when his dad read his msn conversations with her and told him he was to never talk to her again cuz she was messed up lol.

UltimateFighterManGuys she is being arrested for the sexual conversations she had with him. Not the act that took place in Canada.


Nope, inital arrest was for transporting a minor across state lines without permission, either expressed or written, from the custodial parent or guardian. Which is a felony. Sex conversations, lewd acts(outside of actual sexual contact) are usually considered misdemeanor and typically will not warrant pursuit of an interstate type of arrest.

Everything else (weither or not they boinked, sex chats) is actually circumstanial and would require further investigative work in order to make a timely arrest and are not grounds for issuing warrants without further evidence. While it may be used to futher the initial investigation it actually is just considered "hear say" which most times is not considered admisable in court most of the time. Read up on the big debate over "Sexting" for futher info. Kinda ties in with the whole proving someone actually downloaded illegal music just because it was on their PC debacle. For example, I am a police officer, I set up a chat room conversation and represent myself as a teenage girl looking for sex with an older man. Just because I get responses and what not doesn't actually give me grounds for arresting someone in most states unless they send certain explicit media to said minor, it is the person actually showing up at what ever location to meet the "teenage girl" that gives me grounds to arrest because at that point I have witnessed a felony in progress or someone seeking to solicitate a minor.

Go to Cambodia to have sex with an 8 year old boy and see if the feds are waiting for you when you get back. I'm pretty sure there's some law that states that crimes against children (I realize the term "children" is debatable in this instance) are just that... crimes... irregardless of geographic borders. I think the intent is to protect children in places where they are not protected by punishing the predators. It's a gray area... a 42 year old woman had no business going after a 16 year old... no long-term good is gonna come of that for the boy.

the kid was not moved anywhere!!!!! it takes 5 min to drive across Barrie, its not a big city maybe 150k ppl. so the lady was NOT arrested for that. she IS being arrested for luring a minor back in either the US (dont care if they are state or federal charges, but it sounds to me like she is facing state charges since the age of consent is higher then 16 in Texas...

One thing that really bothers me with this article: "Kane supposedly played the game "every waking hour," and rarely attended school because of the addiction."

So his parents let him stay home from school to play WoW? He's 16, that puts him in either Grade 10 or 11, I know some pretty hardcore WoW players but they at the very least go to work/school at a minimum.

I could only imaging the repercussions if I would have told my parents "no I'm going to stay home, I'd rather play video games than go to school" Pretty sure my computer would have been in pieces within minutes, possibly burning in a fire pit out back...
