COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Sidney Myers will spend the next 18 months in a federal prison for 15 minutes worth of sex videos he made with his teenage girlfriend.

Myers’ prison sentence, handed down Thursday, is the type of nightmare scenario that law enforcement has been warning parents and high school students about: Intimate videos and photos of young people on electronic devices can send someone to prison.

[His] attorney said comes from a “very good family,”

Myers apologized to his family and told Anderson, “I’m sorry about everything. If I could take it back I would. This ain’t my lifestyle.”

Bologna. He calls a terrorist threat to a high school so he can spend the afternoon diddling his 16 year old girlfriend and captures it on video and expects us to believe this "ain't his lifestyle"? That is his lifestyle.

When I was in high school a guy and his girl got caught in this mostly stupid law.
He had just turned 18, she was just 16, the father (of the girl) caught them together.
The guy was charged and forever tagged as sexual predator, spent time in jail....when she turned 18, they got married.
I get the laws but good lord some common sense should be applied.

This where an informed jury is supposed to nullify the law.

But we don't like informed juries in this country. They are bad for the re-election chances of so many judges and DA's.

So, the big problem is that he recorded it on his cellphone. We’re in big trouble in this country.

The whole sex offender registry is a joke. If a person is a threat, sentence that person appropriately. Once their sentence is up, he/she should be FREE, period.

Punishment for all crimes should be taken care of in prison, but once that person has “paid their debt to society”, all rights should be restored. They should be able to own firearms, there should be no criminal history on their record, etc.

But I believe that child molesters should NEVER be released from prison, if it is such that you have to worry about them once they leave prison, then perhaps they should never be allowed to leave prison.

This guy sounds like a candidate for a future Darwin award. He lost one leg in an ATV accident. He called in a bomb threat so he and his girlfriend could have the day off. He video'd his underage girlfriend having sex ~ presumably with him ~ or whoever.

He's lucky to be getting locked up ~

Being an amputee, he will probably serve his time in a medical prison of some sort. I can’t see them putting him in a maximum security facility.

When you’re 20 you should know that it’s not wise to have a 16 year old girlfriend.
