Convicted Sex Offender Charged With Child Luring
Yet another convicted sex offender paying no mind to the law. Henry Richard Newell who is a registered sex offender, but homeless went right up to a 7 year old boy and told the child to leave with him. The little boy's dad was speaking to a salesperson and Newell fled when he realized the boys father was nearby.http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...ildluring.html

Have A Cookie
The attempt to lure the little boy happened in a QFC grocery store. The boy's dad was in the floral section while the boy was nearby in the bakery section. Newell got away but the incident was captured on tape. Being the brilliant pervert he is he returned to the store again some time later. Employees recognized him and eventually LE got the freak. This depraved guy told cops he didn't recall speaking to the boy, BUT if he did it would have been to ask him to come outside and have a cookie. O.K.http://www.komotv.com/news/local/18141164.html

The sex offender has this guy as a Level 2 offender, but on another part of the information he's 3. How about everybody is a 3 I say. Better safe than sorry. Look at this guy. Would anyone believe he was going to take a child outside for a cookie? As if mere strangers would even entertain that thought?http://ml.waspc.org/offender.aspx?pi...e%20&zip=00002

I read the link and I have a problem with the wording. Newell a convicted sex offender was charged with "attempted luring" of a child, shouldn't this be "attempted kidnapping?" I don't get it?

I feel like hitting my head on my desk when I read about ANOTHER child rapist out and about to rape and kill other children while our laws and some very mixed up individuals (even some of webslueths!) supports the rights of the pedophile to live freely among our children and by doing so they allow it to happen over and over again. We don't want to take the rights away from tax paying pedophiles but the rights of our kids to be safe ...ah who cares...
Some people make me wanna vomit.

Come guys, why y'all always so suspicious? The nice man just wanted to give the boy a cookie.
Argh, no really, this is going to be one of those stories where the RSO gets off again (oops) and will attempt to lure another child till it works and THEN he'll go to jail for rape and murder.

The specifics of this law vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
I don't have a problem with a state being bright enough to have an attempted luring law on the books so that this man can be charged and spend 10 years in jail. Kidnapping is taking and holding someone against their will through force, threat or intimidation. This man didn't do that and it would be difficult to prove that he did. But we know he was up to no good. Luring for indecent purposes is just that. Without the attempted luring law, he would likely go free.
I think such a law is on the books when a place takes "Here little boy - do you want a piece of candy?" seriously.
