...FBI agents later interviewed Marrero's ex-girlfriend, who confirmed that she was 17 at the time the pictures were taken. A conviction will force Marrero to register as a sex offender and could land him in prison for up to 30 years. According to the U.S. Department of Justice's guide to federal child pornography law, "a first time offender convicted of producing child pornography...face fines and a statutory minimum of 15 years to 30 years maximum in prison." Under Ohio law, which also sets the cutoff for child pornography at 18, Marrero would have faced between six months and eight years. ...

Where is common sense???
What does the Keebler elf say?
Only government officials are allowed to engage in pedophilia.
Everybody knows that.
The law is the law, but I agree that it should also exercise a little discretion lest it become inflexible, absurd, and contemptible.
Change the laws then.
What ever happened to federalism? Why is the federal government involved in this?
“According to Cleveland.com, Marrero accidentally admitted his conduct while on the stand in federal court, testifying in defense of a roommate who was also facing child porn charges.”
There is something more to this.
Child pornography is obscene. This was an act between consisting adults. This was not child pornography. Perhaps the FBI should spend their time uncovering the many many many crimes of the Clintons and our Justice Department.
Never tick off the FBI...
As is usually the case, there is more to the story than we are seeing here in your little excerpt.
But in fine FReeper fashion; I’ll feign outrage about it.
Given this statement:
According to Cleveland.com, Marrero accidentally admitted his conduct while on the stand in federal court, testifying in defense of a roommate who was also facing child porn charges.
I would guess there was more going on than just taking “innocent” pictures of a girlfriend.
Our FBI is wasting time and resources on this stupidity when real threats exist?! Every agent involved should be fired!
Kind of surprised at least a few of the formerly respected FBI pukes were available to chase this idiocy instead of trying to frame President Trump for things Hillary Clinton did. Maybe they needed a distraction.
“This is insane. The FBI is completely out of control. And there’s nothing anyone can do about it. “
LOL. perhaps if you had read your article ...
“Where is common sense???”
Not smart to volunteer under oath that you are guilt .... while testifying at his roommates trial for ....... child porn.
“Perhaps ... “ you should read the article
“According to Cleveland.com, Marrero accidentally admitted his conduct while on the stand in federal court, testifying in defense of a roommate who was also facing child porn charges. (The article does not clarify whether the roommate’s alleged crimes were as farcical as Marrero’s, and it does not give the context of Marrero’s inadvertent confession.) As soon as Marrero had finished testifying, the feds arrested him.”
More to the story
First never take nude pictures, never take nude pictures of someone else, never take nude pictures of someone else who is under the age of 18, never admit to it on the stand as a witness on another child porn case.
This dude did a lot of wrong here.
I could see if she took a nude selfie of herself and sent it to him, but for him to be the producer, that is the fine line and he crossed it and admitted to it on the stand (sworn statement)
I have personal and documented knowledge of a half billion dollar pump and dump scam. Reported to the FBI, SEC, and my Senators.
Know what happened? Nothing.
The Deep State could not care less about us, but will take the time to wreck some kid. Pathetic.
True, but don’t interrupt the pervert virtue signaling.
