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.

My oldest son got his girl friend pregnant when she was 15 years old. Her father went to the police to try to have him arrested for statutory rape, he gave up on the idea when the cops pointed out to him that my son was 4 months younger than his daughter.

A side note to this story:

My wife and I encouraged her to have the baby and we would take it and raise it, or support her and the baby, she was for it but her father was not and forced her to get an abortion. Yes, I said forced.

My grand child would have been 24 years old this year. The g/friend’s father died 2 years ago. When I heard the news, I immediately thought, that he was having to answer some very serious questions.

Their family was Catholic and we’re not. I went to Catholic family services, they even sent a Priest to his house to talk to him. It did no good at all. The girl could have moved in with us.

Sorry for the long reply, I have to unload this once in a while.

i was in a jury pool a few years back - a young black man - probably 18 was charged with statutory rape of a “child” - pretrial case info delivered by the atty stated the girl was 1 week from being “legal” - the pool groaned in unison - why it even came to trial amazed us- all - it was quickly thrown out once everyone on the pool was seated

Given what we see in the name of entertainment, 'these days'; it is all to easy to see; how 'easy' it is; in fact; for lines to blur - that and the scum MO of 'reality tv' itself.

Reason to bear here? Not in Liberaland; where most of these 'issue' take root; in fact.

The guy was charged and forever tagged as sexual predator, spent time in jail....when she turned 18, they got married.

I bet family get-togethers with the in-laws were tense.

Sick is what you’re proving yourself to be.

Try Yeshua’s standard for a change:

“Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.”

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

I would hate to have a roomie in prison named Bubba who had a nickname of Captain Hook.

Oh, so that means we can do anything bad we want?

kiddie porn is satanic-type evil that should be a death penalty offense

Although the courts have no flexibility, pity, sympathy, or common sense with regards to the the letter of the law, most police have a "3 year rule", if the age difference is less that three years, they can't be bothered, unless a well connected parent forces them to be.

it was quickly thrown out once everyone on the pool was seated.

Good for you!

You’re really over the edge.

You boil with bitterness and hatred. Don’t be surprised if you come down with cancer; that is the usual result of such a spiritual state.

Thanks Gamecock.
The girlfriend, who knew Myers was videoing at the time, was 16 -- which made her a minor under a federal sex offender law meant to apply to serious sex crimes. Having the video on his cellphone meant Myers violated federal law by possessing child pornography... Myers, who was 20 at the time, had no criminal record... now will be listed on South Carolina’s sex offender registry... mostly includes sex predators, stalkers, pedophiles, child pornographers and rapists. That will sharply limit his future career choices and even where he can live... Anderson also gave Myers 18 months in prison for making a bomb threat to Eau Claire High School in north Columbia on Nov. 2, 2011... so he and his girlfriend, an Eau Claire student, could spend the day together without her having to skip school. ...Myers used a blocking technology to disguise his cellphone number when he called Eau Claire to make the threat... At 16, the girl was legally able to have consensual sex under South Carolina law. But under federal law, it isn’t legal to videotape minors under 18 having sex.
He didn't "videotape" anything. However, the bomb threat part of this makes me want to see the budding sociopath publicly flogged.

Oh please. Just because I think children should be protected from exploitation, I am somehow a bad person?

Actually, it wasn't the sex that was illegal. It were the photographs.

That is what we were referring to, the photographs

I pointed out that nudity is not the illegal part, its the sexual activity on film that was the illegal part and rightfully so.
