    castration should always be the punishment for this crime.

    I think the whole system for child sexually related crimes need to overhauled.

    The laws in my opinion are to vague and obviously the punishments far, far to weak.

    The guy will probably also spend his time in Protective Custody, meaning he won't be around any other prisoners, which is sad because typically kiddy diddlers would be killed if they were amongst the rest.

    Nobody here has ever downloaded an image of "teens gone wild" or crap like that... how do you know they're all of age? Even a mistaken download could get you a rap for "Child Porn" The use of the word "Child" being key... it's pretty easy for a 17 year old chick to pull off 21 or better, and mislead people into thinking they're legit. Yet that's "Child Porn" Nobody said they guy had pics of 9 year olds or anything. He may have for all I know, but that's not what I'm getting at. Maybe it isn't what we think and the sentence does fit the crime, it could very well have been a very minor thing.

    I do think the laws should change to reflect the severity in situations of a 16 year old compared to , say a 9 years old.

    However a 50+ year old looking at porn with girls 16 and younger is still wrong.

    Sticking up for a man that looks at and has been convicted of possessing child pornography...classy.

    Anytime I hear someone do this I always make the assumption they, or someone close to them, have been charged with something simaliar.
    I know I shouldn't, but it's always the first thing that pops into my head. :o

    Not sticking up for anyone... it's called looking at something objectively and thinking, try it.

    No, I've never been charged with anything ever, and hold several security clearances for work.

    I was trying to figure how a guy can get a two week sentence. So there's two options that come to mind. 1. The judge is retarded. 2. The actual offence must've been pretty minor, and possibly not even intentional.

    In no way do I condone child porn (see above), but xix made an intersting point.

    Exactly. A two week sentence dose appear too lenient. That would be like Boots getting busted for child porn before of sunfire girl's/"stained thighs" pics on RC. It could have been unintentional.

    Laws regarding this kind of thing are reallyyy lax in my opinion.

    Although they seems to be improving and I hope they will continue to do so.

    Sadly 2 weeks does not mean it was something "small" or accidental.

    I remember years ago a father getting a similar sentence, he was charged with abusing and molesting his young daughter. :(

    Well, i was looking around at some prior sentences and came across this article (click), it wasn't an accidental thing obviously, and the guy got the minimum allowable sentence. I have no idea what the judge is smoking.

    Long as the public keeps electing the shitty politicians we do nothing will change as far as sentencing.
    We elect bad people and they are not going to fight to create huge penalties for crimes they may commit.

    I accidently downloaded child porn from Lime-wire once. I was gonna report it to the police, see if they could track down where I got it from. But my ex wouldn't let me and deleted it. The kid was no more then 2 or 3. That is one video that will never leave my mind.

    I don't know. The reason he gave was they probably couldn't trace it to someone off limewire. (Afterall someone could have downloaded it from me in the short time I had it.) And who knows how long they would have the computer for. I think he was afraid of something, but I don't know what. Maybe being judged by cops whos opinions of our personal lives doesn't matter.

    Nobody "tracked" this guy either Columbo. Read the article.

    Anyway, my statement was for discussion and isn't pertinent to what the guy had on his pc as it turns out. This guy did have real child porn and two weeks in jail is not an effective sentence in my opinion.
