    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.
