Pressing charges when there's a crime

I don't understand the debate over whether SC should press charges against Michael Phelps. If he committed a crime, the state should press charges.

If it "costs too much" for society to gain its expected benefit from enforcing a law, perhaps the law should be removed from the books.

We have too many people in this country to whom the law doesn't apply on account of particular fame, fortune, or family.
