Read the recent Q&A about my book, But They Didn’t Read Me My Rights!, on The Super Lawyers Blog. In the interview, Adrienne Schofhauser and I discuss some interesting issues, including religion’s influence on the law. When she asked me about that topic, I couldn’t help but think of the
Wisconsin prosecutor who threatened to criminally charge school teachers for teaching state-approved sex education. (That threat makes the teachers’ current battle with Scott Walker look tame by comparison.) I also wondered why the prosecutor would charge contributing to the delinquency of a minor—I mean, why stop there? Why not go for party-to-the-crime of child sexual assault? People have been convicted of aiding and abetting that felony for doing far less than teaching sex education.
