Introduced by U.S. Representative Nancy Johnson, R-CT, on May 16, 2001, the Sex Crimes Wiretapping Act of 2001 was intended to change Title 18 of the United States Code so that sexual crimes with minors as targets would be classified as “predicate crimes for the interception of communications.” On May 22, 2002, this Act was sent to the Senate Committee, was received in the Senate, and was sent to the Committee on the Judiciary. It was not passed in this form.
