NORTH DAKOTA -- A former North Idaho man who battled the Environmental Protection Agency has been arrested and charged with sex trafficking in North Dakota.
Michael Sackett, 47, made his first court appearance in federal court Tuesday.
Sackett faces charges for attempting to entice an underage girl across state lines to engage in a commercial sex act.
Sackett and his wife Chantell made headlines when they fought the EPA over some land they bought in Priest Lake that was later determined to be wetlands by the agency.
The couple brought their fight all the way to the Supreme Court and won.
Sackett will be back in court Friday.

As Lois Lerner said upon losing an IRS ruling “We NEVER lose”.
With this administration, it may not be coincidence.
He may very well be guilty. But taking on his EPA overlords like he did?
It put his life under a microscope and he is SOL.
This one is a bit more dicey, as it requires a 14 year old to testify, and children never, ever lie, even with the full weight of the federal government hanging over them and their families.
That being said, maybe this guy's crime isn't fighting the EPA and winning, maybe he really did violate the Mann act.

I thought this federal govt was PRO porn anyway.....and pro ped......
Frame up. I heard the other handy one is planting kiddie porn on your computer.
some things don’t pass the smell test.... this is one of them
I am looking forward to the Obama Quatrofecta: A Nobel Prize, an impeachment, a War Crimes Trial AND him and all his cohorts being thrown into the Lake of Fire.
What is "handy one"?
If we only had an opposition party with a backbone.
I smell rats the size of ranch houses, here.
“Sackett faces charges for attempting to entice an underage girl across state lines to engage in a commercial sex act.”
This covers the gamut of the “ideal federal charge”, because likely all evidence against him was collected through warrantless monitoring of his computer. It crosses state lines so it is clearly federal jurisdiction. And the collection methods, even *who* collected that data is likely secret, and will not be divulged to the defense.
In other words, “He committed a federal crime that cannot be detailed in court or cross examined. His accusers are secret. Therefore he is guilty, and cannot prove he is not guilty.”
If the feds were really being crappy about it, if his computer used WiFi, they could have parked near his house, accessed his system, done the evidence transfer themselves, with him none the wiser.
Whether you sign up for ObamaCare or not, living in a Marxist police state can be hazardous to your health. If you have “skeletons”, it might be a good idea not to attack “da man”.
And there will come the day when we will be called into active duty.
why drive over there just access his account and load it up with all kinds of BS..
May be time to throw this thing away
From the Article: “...The couple brought their fight all the way to the Supreme Court and won....”
Obama, the criminal anti-Americans in the EPA and Eric Holder & his corrupt Department of Justice do not like to lose. Paybacks are hell.
