Late in the evening on the night of February 22nd 1984 Keith Jacobson ordered two explicit magazines for his personal leisure These two publications ordered were titled Bare Boys 1 and Bare Boys 2 from a California based adult novelty shop Keith Jacobson claims is that he did not know that these two publications included pre-teen nudity of young boys which violated the provision of the Child Protection Act of 1984 Only ninety days after Jacobson received the illegally explicit magazines the law banned all types of pornography of underage children What interests me the most of this Supreme Court Decision was the government originated entrapment that ultimately decided Jacobsons Guilt During the time the nude publications were ordered by Jacobson the act of viewing child pornographic material was permitted or in Jacobsons case - not yet attended to Subsequently the Child Protection Act of 1984 made the acceptance of any mailing with sexually explicit children illegal When Agents found Jacobsons name on the bookstore mailing list two Government agencies sent mail to him through five fabricated organizations and a phony pen pal to investigate his willingness to break the law Receiving the fabricated government mailing for over two years Jacobson eventually let into his personal explicit interest and ordered a bogus publication which would have included under age teenage boys involved in sexual activities He was arrested after a controlled delivery of the magazine but a search of his house revealed no materials other than those sent by the Government and the Bare Boys magazines During Jacobsons trial he pleaded entrapment and testified that he had been curious to know the type of sexual actions to which the last letter referred and that he had been shocked by the Bare Boys magazines because he had not expected to receive photographs of minors He was convicted and the Court of Appeals confirmed The main issue in this Supreme Court decision that caught many peoples attention
