Child Pornography Sentences Too Harsh

Anyone rational individual who is familiar with our country’s sex crime laws knows that the punishments for these types of crimes are disproportionate, and unfair. Below is a link to an article that describes exactly this problem, in which case a man was sentenced to life in prison for possessing child pornography. With so many individuals’ lives being shattered by these excessive punishments, the question is when will our lawmakers stop being driven by public outcries, and instead make level-headed decisions?

    well, i really do think that sentence for child porn must be this harsh. imagine the ruins made to a child’s life when they are exposed to this crimes. the trauma can never be erased. it stays there even after it is medicated. i think that this is a right punishment for all who are involved to child pornography.

    My son was taken into custody last month awintiag sentencing, which will be the 15 year mandatory minimum, for production if child porn . He didn’t molest anyone, but did take four pictures of a teenage girl, which might or might not have been considered child porn. They were found on his computer. He pled rather than risk a longer sentence by going to trial. Because many, if not all SOs were molested as children, I’d like to recommend a book by a survivor, Pete Pelullo, called Betrayal and the Beast. My son has been in contact with Pete and has read his book, as have several of the men in his pod at CCA. All thought it was very helpful, giving them some insight into why they did what they did. I and several members of my family also found it very informative. It helps us understand the long-range effects of childhood sexual abuse. I’d like to thank Joe for his blog. I’ve printed much of it for my son and think it will be very helpful to him. And thank you, Matt for posting it for him.
