Doctor Claims Entrapment In Nbc "Predator" Series

A doctor targeted by NBC Dateline's "To Catch a Predator" producers has claimed that he was lured by the program's staff and has asked a judge in Santa Rosa, CA to dismiss the charges against him. Dr. Maurice Wolin said that the Perverted Justice employee working with Dateline and posing as a 14-year-old child, accused him of being "a chicken and a liar and a ditcher and a player" after he told her he was "not ready yet" and "couldn't do anything." In fact, Wolin told police, She begged me to come. I know that doesn't make it right ... but I never would have done anything." Meanwhile the program and Perverted Justice have been criticized by Bradd Russ, training director for the federal Internet Crimes Against Children task force. In an interview with Saturday's Contra Costa Times, Russ said, "I think there are definitely entrapment issues. ... The fact law enforcement allows themselves to abdicate their role and responsibility and become agents for the media and actors for the media is very disturbing."
