There it is. What an idiot. Threw away a lucrative deal and will forever be known as a sex offender, all for a fetish. Hope it was worth it pal.

I wouldn't call pedophilia just a 'fetish'.

On topic - Genuinely surprised he turned out to be like this.
Why? You didn't know him from Adam.

People are getting lazy about coming up with their own thread titles and just taking the headline of the article.

No other title I could've come up with would have been as clear as the one the original article used and I didn't think this would be an appropriate thread to include some sort of joke in the title.

DVD's? Damn Jared!

Not saying I'm for what he did but the FBI are really looking into destroying peoples lives. Should they be looking for murders or major drug dealers instead of porn?

I hope the deal was jail time. This seals the deal on subway for me. It's like the yoga mat breads weren't good enough.

Setting aside the hilarious idea that the bread was made with yoga mats, are you suggesting Subway was somehow complicit in this and thus deserves your unending ire?

Yeah, what's up with the FBI getting in the face of honest child porn owners when they could be busting a guy selling weed?

How do you think this porn is getting produced? Once you figure that out, maybe you'll understand why this is a big deal.

Getting the footage to a DVD requires children to be abused. Which is illegal, you're missing that. They are usually from sex rings, where they are sold/traded. These are gigantic networks that sprawl across the globe. If you really wanted to make the argument, I'd say that global Child Abuse/Sex Trade has more victims than the murderers and drug dealers activities.

But that just depends on where you place on importance, child rape, forced prostitution, and deaths of said children.

edit;

While im realising this might be a troll -- The sentiment here is bound to resonate with some that aren't familiar with how deeply fucked up the child sex trade is.

edit:

It wasn't a troll... :-|

Perhaps, but regardless it isn't something you throw away your livelihood--and your freedom--away for.

It was estimated the guy was worth 15 million. Living in Indiana, he could of settled for a nice life if his Subway endorsement deal dried up. Hell, he could of been convicted of buying sex from a non-minor prostitute and I believe the stigma wouldn't last forever, if even a couple of years. But he had to go after the kids....

According to the previous story, the women he was trying to convince into a cousin-involved threesome went to Subway and they ignored her.

This is about child porn and pedophilia. The kids being pushed around for porn and sex acts could be sex slaves because for some reason sex trafficking is a thing in our first world country. People who take advantage of children are just as bad as murderers and drug dealers.

Is downplaying child porn in anyway REALLY something you want to do?

When news first broke I felt like he got a bad break given his employees actions. Turns out they had him dead to rights.

Well? What do the pedophile apologists from the original thread have to say now
I don't think anyone was defending pedophiles, or making excuses for them, more like just trying not to throw labels around until evidence came to light. Now that evidence has come to light, and Jared has all but confirmed himself he is guilty, I'm pretty sure that those people will be happy to climb on the GAF side of the fence.

Possession of child porn means also looking at child porn, right? Or was he just holding it for his business partner?

I need to know how fucked up Jared truly is.

There is no sentencing guidelines for 'looking'. It's all possession and distribution if they find proof of that on his computer.

Plea deal better end with his ass in prison. Weren't people arguing that he was only dating 16 year old girls and that there was nothing wrong with it because it's "legal".

My view is, any grown ass man dating/having sex/whatever with 16 year olds never stop there. Hell any grown ass man with a 16 year old girl is a pedophile in my book, fuck your dictionary definition.

Lock him up, and fuck the noise of "show empathy" or whatever people like to argue.

Lock him the fuck up.

First of all, it's mainly the media that ends up destroying people's lives over these things, not the FBI (and is a whole separate issue). I mean the guy's pleading guilty so he's not some innocent person who is getting wrongfully investigated here. Second, the FBI has to start somewhere in order to get these children out of horrible situations. It's not like they can just tell who is abusing children and who is "only" watching them get abused. And besides, anyone who watches this kind of stuff is directly responsible for these children getting abused because they support the industry surrounding child porn.
