Jim Clemente talks “Without Consent” and Criminal Minds with Allison Weiner

Via Allison Weiner and Crime Time.

Child abduction online and through the Darknet is discussed with Jim Clemente, who details his experience as an FBI SSA, and how it has informed his writing on CRIMINAL MINDS. Citing several episodes of CRIMINAL MINDS that dealt with child abduction and murder, and the real-life basis of the dramatizations, we discuss how online acquaintances can manipulate children into sexual trafficking, and how kidnapped kids can be shamed and programmed through torture into staying with their captors in this uncensored Crime Time, hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.

Jim Clemente is a retired FBI agent and current advisor, writer and producer for the TV series “Criminal Minds.” A graduate of Fordham University School of Law, Jim was the head of the Child Sex Crimes Prosecution Team in Bronx County for the New York City Law Department.
