A former Disney computer executive who used internet chatrooms for lewd exchanges with underage girls until he was caught trying to solicit sex from a 13-year-old has been told by a federal judge he will not have to serve any prison time because of his exceptional contributions to FBI efforts to track sexual predators online.
I feel a bit betrayed and worry about whether I can trust him.
Since being arrested on Santa Monica pier last summer in a sting operation - the 13-year-old he had met online turned out to be an undercover agent - he has become friendly with his trackers from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and voluntarily developed five investigative software packages that could have cost the government millions of dollars on the open market."[The programs'] purpose is to protect children from internet paedophiles and it is the view of this court that they would be extremely helpful in doing so," Judge Edward Rafeedie said at the sentencing hearing on Wednesday.Showing obvious respect for Naughton, the judge not only waived prison time - which could have been as much as 15 years under federal law - but also said the defendant would be under no obligation to help the FBI further during his five-year probation period.Such intimacy is built on communication and friendship and leads to deep affection and a satisfying sex life.However, creating this intimacy is hard work and much harder than the easy escapism of the internet or watching TV or even over-working or domestic chores.
