Oh, so that means we can do anything bad we want?
kiddie porn is satanic-type evil that should be a death penalty offense
>> “I’ve seen lots of amputees in prison...” <<
How many years did you do? :o)
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.
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 Carolinas 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 isnt 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?
You know what this thread is about, and you know what is in your heart.
This thread is about a pervert who knew very well what he was doing was illegal.
That is why its illegal
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.
I mostly blame the girls who are incredibly stupid.
some times it's fun to leave out the fact that I only work in a prison. Last year I told a fellow freeper that I spent new years eve locked up. Blew his mind until i let him off the hook and told him my occupation.
From another article:
The case was investigated by agents of the FBI. Assistant United States Attorneys Dean Eichelberger and Winston Holliday of the Columbia office handled the case.
in many US jurisdictions she is of the age of consent. also, in various jurisdictions there are "romeo and juliet" laws that carve exceptions for cases like this where there is a consensual relationship.
for me what really does him in is the added layer of the bomb threat. this is most definitely his "lifestyle" despite what he says.
“age of consent” for sex
She is still under 18 though, a minor
Nope, not complicated at all, dead simple, she can have sex unless she has sex.
She can have sex. They just cannot take pics and videos of it.
Not quite, she can have sex, just not with anyone else, or it's statutory rape.
Or at least state sex is OK, but Federal sex isn't?
She can do the deed in South Carolina, but not in these United States...
...or did I miss something?
Now your being dense.
leave the cameras off, its that simple.
Kiddie pornographers should be killed. All of them.
sex offenders have a lower rate of reoffense than other criminals. Stats don’t lie.
You and your family did everything you could. That must give some comfort. Its a sad story. I am sorry you don’t have your grandchild with you all.
Some sex crimes are worse than others. The thing about the sex offender registry, at least the one in my town, it does not tell you what the offender did.
Attacking little kids or did he get caught taking a leak in a public park late at night?
Whoa. Stop. Rewind. I missed this little gem when you replied to me earlier.
Now why on earth would I want to go look at "gray area" photos of children on nudism sites?
For someone who thinks child pornographers should burn in hell, you sure seem to know where to find pics of naked kids.
I am pointing out that images of nude children is not illegal, I wish they were.
Source please? I'm given to understand that child molesters have the highest rate of recidivism, not the lowest.
And you told us all where to find them.
Now would be a good time to put away that shovel.
There goes the Sistine Chapel........
I didn’t know the chapel had photographs of actual children engaged in sex...
The author's claim was that the crimes went unprosecuted because they were black on black. Sorta sounds like the Sandy Hook murders versus a typical Chicago Saturday night, doesn't it?
The high schools pass out free condoms...
“Meanwhile, the existing research raises tough questions about the relative danger child molesters pose to society. Their likelihood of being convicted for a crime after release is much lower than average for all criminals released from prison, and even for all sex offenders, at least in the short term, as measured by a Bureau of Justice Statistics study and others.” -Wall Street Journal 1-24-08
They were married for over 60 years.
It is the peoples courts.
They cannot stop it.
I would not want to see his family life if this is considered a good family. He is a complete idiot....if it was just the video that would be different but making calls to the school stating a bomb threat well that is completely different and jail is appropriate and since I am not being charitable life on the registry is fine.
This was a very informed jury and he deserves every moment in jail!
So sorry to hear this story. May he burn forever. I think your family is fantastic to do everything you could to stop the abortion. God Bless you and your family.
If common sense could not be used to begin with; a law will only make things worse as the language is twisted and skewed to suit the needs of the moment, and as such should be killed immediately.
Like anything to do with gov’t, it is best not to give them any more power than they already have stole/usurped. Give an inch, take a mile.
Interesting. It wasn’t too long ago when ‘kids’ this old were married, building and having families and creating America as we know it now.
The People’s memory is, indeed, short.
The implied threat is contempt of court, with whatever jail time or fine hizzoner sees fit to apply.
We call this FELONY EXTORTION
This guy is a dumb jackass, but I wouldn’t put this on the sex offenders list for life. I personally think this guy needs 1000 hours of community service for the bomb threat with the change of expungement. I’m uneasy about the 20 and 16 age difference, but that’s not necessarily evil and the parents didn’t seem to object. If he transferred the video to a 3rd party - then I’d have a much different opinion.
Because murders never repeat..or rapists?
Sorry, but you could very well worry about repeat offenses for anybody in prison.
I am so very sorry for you and your husband and the mother and father of this precious baby who dwells with Jesus.
The guys in black robes, surrounded by armed and armored bailiffs, the ones who can decide what is and what isn't contempt, and who can confine anyone for as long as they please (subject to a few limits) call it maintaining courtroom discipline, jury instruction or whatever they damn well please.
You can call the judge out on it any time you please, bless your heart.
Not too long ago at all. In fact it has happened in my own lifetime. ;)
The whole “let’s record IT for the internet” is a relatively new event that still escapes me.
Maybe I should reread the article,but it doesn’t look as if he had a jury trial. His lawyer probably worked a plea, and the obviously perplexed judge had no choice but to follow the sentencing guidelines. Sorry story all around. Incredibly stupid, both as to taping the sex and calling the bomb threat to his girlfriend’s school. Now he pays the rest of his life.
“This thread is totally useless without pics.”
They probably wanted to nail him hard for the bomb threat.
He is likely to face charges in South Carolina. If done right, he may face life in prison due to SC’s three strikes law.
