Man Charged With Attempting Sex With 9 Year Old and Computer Use Gets Time Served No SR

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 8 – Orestis Argyris was changed in 2017 with "using the internet and a phone messaging application to communicate with an undercover FBI officer about arranging to have sexual intercourse with a nine-year-old girl."  

 He was sentenced to a year of home incarceration. But on September 9 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Sidney H. Stein held a violation of supervised release proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

There was talk of Argyris being autistic, and Judge Stein said perhaps this matter should no longer by in the criminal courts due to questions about Argyris' mens rea.

The approach contrasted to that in US v. Peter Bright of ArsTechnica.

On December 8, Judge Stein held the sentencing, and Inner City Press again covered it. After pleading guilty to patronizing sex workers and using a computer without the permission of probation, Argyris was sentenced to time served and no more supervision; the problem was said to lie outside of the criminal justice system.

This case is US v. Argyris, 18-cr-547 (Stein)
