Abstract In this ABC News program, John Stossel sheds light on troubling issues involving sexual behavior and criminal justice. Case studies include the story of 18-year-old Jon, who spent a year in jail after having sex with a 14-year-old girl-although her father later regretted pressing charges and tried to have Jon removed from Florida's sex offender registry. Other reports concern an alleged sex offender who was "framed" by his younger sister, a father whose sexual transgression as a teenager now impacts his freedom as a parent, and the prevalence of double standards among American parents and politicians. Megan's Law is a featured topic.
