Re: Rape is the Easiest Crime to Get Away With

There are so many reasons why a person wouldn’t report. Maybe they’re worried about not being believed. Maybe they just want to put it behind them. Maybe reporting it would cause problems with their family or their work. It all makes me really sad. What makes me saddest of all, though, is that I am,...

Re: Fogbow Arts and Crafts Club

I make stuff... mostly bags, but other stuff too. I went to a Pride Festival recently (I was part of the entertainment :bag: ). Anyway, there were lots of vendors there selling lots of stuff. I bought a bag. I know, I could have made it myself way cheaper (but it is made from really cute cowgirl fab...

Maybenaut The best way to understand it is to go back and look at the indictment and the statute. The indictment says he is alleged to have conspired to engage in sex trafficking in violation of 18 U.S.C. Sec. 1591(a) and (b). It also says he engaged in sex trafficking in violation of 18 U.S.C Sec....

Okay. I noticed the words "interstate or foreign commerce." I was interested in knowing if the 2008 crimes only took place in Florida.
The operative words will be "in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce." Almost anything will qualify.

I promise I'm not trying to be dense here. What in the charges equals trafficking? (As opposed to soliciting prostitution, for example.) What's the thing that distinguishes it as sex trafficking? Is it that other people acquired them for him? Does that make him a trafficker? (Nor am I trying to got...

If privilege is waived because of Flynn's claims, is privilege waived on all matters discussed between Flynn and his former attorneys? That would seem to be a very, very bad turn of events for Flynn.
No. It would only be waived as to communications relevant to the issue before the court.

How does Flynn making the claims he is about his former attorneys since it could be considered unprofessional or malpractice affect client privilege?
