She was 33 when she became a grandmother. Should I be surprised that she's a degenerate? I'm sure her circumstances are to blame, not her - read sarcasm.

You know what sounds fishy though. She has been charged with "coerced sexual activity" and yet the report also says that she only took pictures of her grandchildren naked. I have seen more than a few photographs of naked children over the years in respected books and magazines and the photographers have never been charged with sex crimes. Is there something they aren't telling us or is nudity now regarded as "sexual activity"?

I guess you skipped the part the said "A woman prosecutors say helped make a graphic videotape of her two visiting grandchildren".

It sounds as if the one who needs to be investigated is you, since you are trying to view taking pictures of nude children as ok.

Photographing a young baby in the bath,or crawling in the nude is cute,photographing 10 and 11 year olds in any state of undress is wrong. There must be more to this story because they charged her with coerced sexual activity. I say she is a very sick person.

this is beng handled in federal court, not state court. She apparently made some sort of deal. Maybe they went after her and cut a deal to get the goods on distributors. everyone is so hypersensitive these days, it is reasonable to wonder what happened, especially in light of people actually being arrested for nude baby pictures and 18 year olds going to prison for haveing sex with 17 year olds. we seem to be ging to the toher extreme and need to find some balance.

taking pictures of nude children or node adults, for that fact, is ok. There is nothing wrong with the human body. it is interesting at all ages. It is taking pictures of those in a sexual manner that are not able to give legal consent that is illegal. It's a wonder that some mainstream ad maker are not brought up on charges, the kids are clothed but definitely depicted in a sexual manner.

A 51 year old making a graphic videotape of a 10 and 11 year old is not to be compared to an 18 and 17 yr old having sex. There is no "balance" to be found and I highly doubt this grandma was taking cute nude "baby" pics of her 10 and 11 year old grandkids.

1) wasn't comparing the two, was giving examples
2) agreed there was something more to this picture than was contained in article. Though, on second thought, with the feds current reputation on holding people on no or flimsy evidece, I wonder. but, again, she did plead guilty.
3)there have been cases where, for example: a woman asking if it was normal to feel sexual arousal while breat feeding was normal (it is0 ended up losing her kid to foster care for almost 3 months, and a Vietnamese family who took baths with their kids (very normal in thier culture) were arrested and went through months of hell before it was settled, and, we all know of the 17-18 year olds. we have gotten used to getting information in sound bytes and i fear we have lost some of our ability to se the bigger picture and use discernemnt.
