Society Favors is light hearted and occasionally humorous video broadcast that places two individuals on the air that couldn’t be more diverse when it comes to their chosen profession. After being told by his life long friend since birth, Robert, that by defending criminals he “is not doing society favors,” William “Ryan” Moore makes it his mission to educate his friend on criminal law. By claiming that the statement was more of a cry for help than an actual belief, William, referred to by his friends as “Ryan” plays on an unfounded fear that absent intervention, Robert will be likely to commit a crime in the near future.
Attorney William R. Moore, a criminal defense lawyer in Fort Lauderdale Florida, provides explanations of criminal offenses such as domestic violence, drug possession, shoplifting, DUI, reckless driving and driving on a suspended drivers license to name a few. The interaction between William and Robert ultimately provides an avenue in which viewers (or listeners) can learn about criminal law in a way that is both entertaining and educational.
In this episode, William (know by his friends as "Ryan") becomes fearful that his lifelong friend Robert, a musician, may be susceptible to the advances of under age fans. Unsuspecting Robert is forced to succumb to a line of questioning designed to illustrate his inability to adequately gauge a girl's true age including photographs to which he is required to guess the age of the various girls depicted.
Available and unavailable defenses to the crime of statutory rape under Florida law are discussed including but not limited to parental consent, checking ID and situations where someone looks much older than their actual age. Criminal charges filed against rock stars such as Tommy Lee formerly of Motley Crew, Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Billie Joe Armstrong of Green are discussed.
The issue of heroin and OxyContin dependency is also discussed in relation to Florida drug possession and trafficking crime. Guitarist John Fruciante and Singer Vince Neil are also discussed.
