Just take him out back and put a bullet in his head.... That is the only cure. Why waste tax dollar money on putting him in prison and supporting his worthless existence ?

Oh yes, because every time someone sees the words "child porn" in the news, it means they must be some terrible child-raping heathen who deserves to be shot in the head.

Ever heard of "innocent until proven guilty"? Also, what would you rather see... someone struggling with an urge they can't control and trying to cope with it by viewing some pornographic material, or someone going out and raping kids all night and all day? No, I don't approve of how CP is made since there are real kids out there getting traumatized and abused, but really, there are worse things someone could do other than possessing CP. MUCH worse. Keep that in mind. And no, just because someone views it doesn't mean they're going to be more likely to go out and rape a kid. That's like saying anyone who plays a violent video game is going to end up being a serial killer. If you still believe that crap, you need to wake up. Lol.

Anyways, my point is, there may be something the news isn't letting us know. Maybe some of these people are set up, or accidentally got into a bad situation... but none of you would ever know because you're too busy assuming everyone who's ever called out in a newspaper or on the TV is guilty of whatever crime they're fingered for... until it's someone from your family or yourself. Then they're ~innocent~ always, even if they aren't.

Be nice, be mature, and wait until everything's said and done before trying to pass judgment. I'm sure you wouldn't be too thrilled if you were accused of something and people couldn't see the truth behind it.

in b4 my post goes completely unappreciated... and yeah, I know my rant isn't completely relevant to the story this thread links to but since there are no other relevant threads (yet) I figured I'd post this here.

"The defendant committed the offense of distribution of obscene matter to minors when the defendant sent pictures of his exposed genitalia to a minor by sending via instant messaging"

Umm... Not accidental.... Pray tell... When was the last time you " accidentally" took a photo of your junk with your phone and then " accidentally" sent it to a minor in a text message?? And I am " fighting a strong urge" to NOT put a bullet in this scumbag's head. It will be a cold day in HELL before I felt any different than that about anyone who views, distributes, possesses, or makes child pornography.

I hope there is a special corner in HELL reserved for these sick bastards...

I'm still ashamed to see such close-minded people in here. You wouldn't be saying this if you were related or close friends with someone in this situation. INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. It makes me hope that every single one of you who is saying such heartless, rude things gets in a situation like this and are hanged and shot in front of the court house. Speaking of which, who SERIOUSLY says anything like that? This is 2012!! They don't do that crap anymore. It's not the 1800s...

You are obvisously a relative or friend of this person or you wouldn't be so devoted to the "Innocent Until Proven Guilty" play off. What if this were your child who had been violated like this, would you still feel this way?? I am pretty sure you wouldn't, you would be saying give him the maximum!!!!!

The sad fact is a large % of people that do these acts have been molested their self, if the case is done the right way and this person gets prof. help I'll bet this is the case. There is no cure for a pet., only prof. help can teach the person how to controll and curb the feelings they might act out on an innocent child. This isn't a blame it was just ment to help.

To Hillbilly Prisoner, I would like to know how you came about with details on this. Is this your opinion of what happen or do you have actual proof?

Ok so I dont see the big deal here. friend/family or not, 9 times out of ten if he was charged he more than likely commited the crime. with all the advances in our technology now there are rarely cases where the aressts are made without evidinciary support. and, if thats the case, whether your realted or a friend, you should be able to see the severity in this situation. this is sick and perverse and in no way should anyone feel sorry for him.

The question isnt whether he did or not, but the actual proof of what he did. Anyone can say he did this or that. Only one real proof of what he did will be in a police report. So, if your not the defendant, police officer, victim, parents, proscuiting attorney, judge or any one else in direct involvement then you have no actual proof of what happen, thats all. We all can have concerns on this and we all can think what might have happen.

No newspaper article,tv news,radio news that I have seen or heard have stated what you said about taking genital pictures and sending via text messages. If so, please post the website or where I I can find it. As concerned citizens and parents we need to go by true facts not just anyone's opinions of what we thought had happen. It's a sad cruel world and we don't need to add fuel to the fire without facts.

That's funny I read that paper and it was on page six of the paper. It only gave charges for him and about the investigation into that case. There was so details of what he actually done to get him caught.

PAINTSVILLE — Attorney General Jack Conway announced Monday the indictment of a Staffordsville man, following an investigation by the Attorney General’s Cybercrimes Unit.

A Rowan County grand jury indicted 21-year-old Eric LeMaster, a former Morehead State University student, on Feb. 17, on one count of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and one count of distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

A search warrant was executed Jan. 31 at LeMaster’s residence at Morehead State, with assistance from campus police. LeMaster turned himself over to police on Feb. 24. He was released from the Rowan County Detention Center after posting bail.

The charges against LeMaster are the result of an undercover investigation that began Jan. 23 by General Conway’s Cybercrimes Unit. Prosecution of this case is being handled by the office of Keen Johnson, Commonwealth’s Attorney for the 21st Judicial Circuit.

Since its creation in June 2008, General Conway’s Cybercrimes Unit has launched more than 230 child pornography investigations and seized more than 300,000 child pornographic images and videos from the Internet. The unit is also a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.

For additional information on cybersafety in Kentucky, visit General Conway’s Cybersafety Page at http://ag.ky.gov/cybersafety/ . To report cyber abuse, visit the CyberTipline or call (800) 843-5678.

A charge is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Now can u point out where it states genitals via text message. Apparently it is that

Sounds like the little girl (although nobody knows HOW little; she may be 17) sent him a picture of her junk (the possession charge) and he sent one back of his (the distribution)...
