The fact is, the state almost blew it on this trial and Mitchell came within 30
days of walking. If federal charges hadn't been filed by the Smarts, he would
have. I think a more pertinent discussion would be on the flaws of the
prosecutorial process including the media influence on it.A more
pertinent discussion would be on how states can make sure that ICAC teams have
sufficient funds to save children from situations involving pornography and
other influences that bring about kidnapping and abuse.
