It is amazing but ungodly how far ” child protection” can be had ” by law. ”
Isn’t it queer how a claim of manifest evil in purpose in deterrent act’s necessity fruits a manifest evil more severe to liberty itself of the body whole. As explained in DOE03 “the basis of recidivism as a statutory matter in expost facto statute question.” Punishment itself carries the exact intended outcome of safety. By that measure ALL LAW has that inherent consideration and therefore a( or ant for that matter) non dispositive test is a bootless exercise precisely because ” civility” is a measure of every intent behind its adoption.
This article highlights the weakness in over reliance of law. A problem
faced by all.

My Son is serving time for CP .. he became addicted to Porn .. and he ended up going down a rabbit hole to hell . He was educated and a great job . He spent a lot of time on his computer . He was single . I hear no discussion about the DANGERS of Porn on the Internet and the addiction it has on the human brain . Even children have access to it in some cases . Most people DO NOT start out watching CP … they become addicted and are lured into it … like drugs . It is a public health issue . There is a group called
“Porn the New Drug “ it is too late for my Son .. but I wish more would be done for others .. as well as the victims in the films .

This just highlights what happens when a former prosecutor gets a lawmaking position where they have the power to put forward laws that are more restrictive. Instead of closing loopholes that favor the influential, he thinks that increasing the penalties is the answer.
Lawmakers need to work with groups like NARSOL & treatment providers to understand the problem. Then use what they learn to find how to best work together to deal with deterring the spread of child pornography. Treating all sex crimes the same hasn’t worked. It’s time to do more than just lock people up & then label them forever.

Well, well. well now. IT FINALLY HAPPENED to one of The State Lawmakers. I wonder how many more have similar images ON THEIR COMPUTERS? No doubt there will be some kind of ‘Double Standard’ Punishment for the rest of them. This punishment isn’t severe enough for him. So he’s not getting what others of Us have been. He’s still getting a break. He won’t see State Prison Time. He’ll do it all in County, and get a break when time comes for his Probation…despite the fact that he’ll still most likely have to Register!

It’s not about how long it takes. It’s all about the state being spiteful and dragging its feet because they know they can and they know you have no way to force their hand.

Was this prosecuted at the state or federal level? I though CP crimes were federal. The sentence doesn’t seem in line with other federal prosecutions for this type of offense. This case seems like the ‘good ol boys club’ was working behind the scenes to help this guy out.

James, CP in PA can be prosecuted either as state or federal. Senator Folmer was prosecuted by the State AG’s office.
