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.

This guy sounds like a candidate for a future Darwin award.

Yeah, this guy is a Grade-A moron. Calling in a bomb threat to his school is as far as I'm concerned more reprehensible than the video of the 16-year old he was banging. And then, he should've known better. It's not like prosecuting these cell phone crimes is a new phenomenon. It's been going on for the last decade or so.

His future earning potential is now limited by being a sex offender? No, they're limited by him being an idiot.

why did the jury convict?

Nullify

Judges here (Silicon Valley, CA) make it crystal clear that the will not tolerate any of this jury nullification nonsense in their courts.

I've seen lots of amputees in prison, most prisons are built or upgraded to be ADA compliant. Not a big deal.

And the 16-year-old’s mother knew about Myers and often let him spend the night at her house. Moreover, when Myers had met the girl, she had told him she was 18.

Second first -- while she may have lied at first, he clearly knew she was 16 by the time he was arrested.

First, what is wrong with this mother? Inviting a 20-year-old to have sex with her 16-year-old daughter?

Agreed - you do your sentence, your debt is paid. If you’re that dangerous, then you should still be in prison.

Murderers go free after a few years and he gets life for doing what she wanted him to do??

No. They didn't get married. He got 18 months in prison, but has to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Dunno, I haven’t yet had the opportunity to test them. Nobody wants an engineer on the jury.

The implied threat is contempt of court, with whatever jail time or fine hizzoner sees fit to apply.

kiddie porn is unforgivable, may he be cursed for a lifetime

Kiddie porn?

Yes, I understand that as far as federal law is concerned there is no difference between naked photos of a 4-year old and naked photos of someone who is 17 years, 364 days. Now I'm not saying that porn of minors should ever be legal but, c'mon, photos of some 16-year old high school strumpet in no way, shape or form equates to the sexual exploitation of children.

Do we really need to fill up sex offender databases with this kind of stuff at the risk that true sexual predators and true pedophiles slip through the cracks?

>> “You think kiddie porn should be legal??” <<

.
Hyperbole much?

It really wasn’t “kidde porn,” it was a family video, a memento. It was not circulated or sold.

A juror cannot be held in contempt for voting their consience.

He deserves to be on the list just for being so STUPID, as to record “the event”.

I have no sympathy for him at all.
