Slow news day in the SDFLA... we'll have to turn to Alabama, via CNN:

"Former Alabama prosecutor arrested on enticement, child porn charges"

Here's the quote from the former prosecutor's defense attorney:

"The facts of the case will turn out to be interesting and (we will) address those when we go to trial."

Interesting? Perhaps not the best choice of words... From the article:

A former Alabama assistant district attorney who specialized in prosecuting sex crimes against minors is accused of enticing what he thought was a teenage girl online for sexual purposes, authorities said.
Steven Giardini was indicted on charges of enticement and solicitation crimes over the computer with the intent to produce child pornography, the Alabama Attorney General's Office said in a statement. Giardini, a former prosecutor in Mobile County, was arrested Tuesday.
The charges stem from the suspect's alleged communication with what he thought was a 15-year-girl, Alabama Attorney General Troy King said in a statement Tuesday. But instead he was communicating with an agent from the FBI's Internet Crimes Against Children division.

His defense will be that he was doing research for his job and checking to see how it is the defendants he prosecuted committed these types of offenses.
