Mr. Scott Ritter was setup by the FBI in a sting operation for talking and exposing the Iraq war WMD narrative, something he's since been vindicated for, and for testifying in US Congress against a certain Joe Biden.

For this, they set him up; A clear as day example of entrapment.
During a role-play, at her behest, this female adult FBI agent spontaneously exclaimed "i'm 15". As part of the role-play, he thought nothing off it.

Also; That Wiki entry is nothing more than an anti-Ritter hit-piece and the Wiki editors' lie. What's new. Wiki is no longer the impartial information portal it once was now that politics became involved.

Ritter was the subject of two law enforcement sting operations in 2001. He was charged in June 2001 with trying to set up a meeting with an undercover police officer posing as a 16-year-old girl. He was charged with a misdemeanor crime of "attempted endangerment of the welfare of a child". The charge was dismissed and the record was sealed after he completed six months of pre-trial probation.

Ritter was arrested again in November 2009 over communications with a police decoy he met on an Internet chat site. Police said that he exposed himself, via a web camera, after the officer repeatedly identified himself as a 15-year-old girl.

In October 2011, he received a sentence of 1½ to 5½ years in prison. He was sent to Laurel Highlands state prison in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, in March 2012 and paroled in September 2014.
