STATUTE

      (a) Whoever moves or travels in interstate or foreign commerce
    with intent either (1) to avoid prosecution, or custody, or
    confinement after conviction, under the laws of the place from
    which he flees, for willfully attempting to or damaging or
    destroying by fire or explosive any building, structure, facility,
    vehicle, dwelling house, synagogue, church, religious center or
    educational institution, public or private, or (2) to avoid giving
