60-year-old John Jacques has appealed his conviction for engaging in sexually graphic online conversations with a police officer posing as a 13-year-old girl, saying the police entrapped him using animated emoticons during the chats. From the article: “Jacques claims prosecutors withheld evidence when they failed to use a computer program that would have shown the jury animated emoticons, which he argued was ‘clear evidence of enticement.’ He doesn’t support his argument with a legal basis, the appeals court found. ‘We fail to see how viewing the emoticons as animations would have led the jury to conclude that he was the victim of excessive incitement,’ the court wrote.”
