or be like the situation i am in.

I'm only interested in 2d porn aka hentai (mostly due to psychological damage thanks to my ex's :D)
my country will send you to jail if any Cartoon porn you consume is under 18 (characters under 18)

I ask you to look up hentai and try to go a full three minutes without coming across (lolicon,Shota,15-17 year old characters etc)

It's next to impossible from my experience and means alot of visual novels are illegal in my country (Australia).

So if i use porn i live on the edge unintentionally ._.

I'm just gonna pull a few quotes from the ANN thread. I think "drawn" CP isn't qualified as CP according to U.S. law, it can land you an obscenity charge but not jail time. These were likely actual images.


Manga & Child Pornography: By definition, manga cannot be child pornography. Child pornography is photographic evidence of a crime where a real person is being subjected to real harm. Drawings are not photographs, and no real people are harmed in their creation. Prosecuting individuals for possessing art is a dangerous infringement on our rights



Child pornography according to US law does not include drawings.





Read all the above quotes about US Law defining child pornography as actual photos or videos. Written material or artwork is not included (afaik). This is clearly not about hentai.


The investigation started in April ish I think and he was convicted in August, so they've been figuring this shit out for awhile and he pled guilty, likely to avoid a worse sentence. Three years is still too light.

However, when you consider it- guy's gonna get fucking eviscerated in jail. Most inmates HATE pedos and if that comes out while the dude is in jail, he's gonna end up maimed, dead, or somebody's bitch. More likely the former though. The lot of people in jail aren't necessarily in for worse or heavier crimes, some of them are in for drugs, and they even find pedos to be morally repugnant as hell.

He's done. Guy is so screwed in jail. They can try and conceal the fact that he's in there for CP but it'll eventually come out. Pedos don't last long in jail.

I feel there's a Psycho Pass joke in this story somewhere, but I'm just not finding it.

It was probably hentai. If it was loli where the character is over 18 and just....loli, I doubt the court would've charged him.
But still, what he did is unacceptable and he got caught by the law.

Hentai isn't qualified as CP under U.S. Law according to most people, the boundaries are sketchy, but the only reason he ended up with 3 years time as supposed to much longer was because he accepted a plea bargain. As I said I think the worst sentence drawn hentai can get you is an obscenity charge. Looking at this realistically, it probably wasn't hentai.


Charges involving possession of loli manga are obscenity charges, because virtual/drawn depictions of under-18s engaged in sexual activities were defined as obscene in the PROTECT act. By contrast, child pornography featuring actual children is banned as part of a series of laws intended to protect children from exploitation, and these laws work differently than obscenity laws.

So, at least if I understand correctly (I am not a lawyer), the fact that Freeman was charged with child pornography makes it pretty clear that the materials that featured human beings, not drawings.

Ah. Yeah, he's getting off easy. And from where he's going, he probably won't last the full length of his sentence. I don't care how famous he is, what he did was wrong. I don't feel sorry for him.

He had a few notable roles and a couple mains, but really he mostly did side/one time characters. The only major loss here is for fans of the Highschool DxD dub and the Hetalia dub, where he played mains. And for fans of Shusei from Psycho Pass like OP mentioned. I don't watch dubs a lot anymore, I find thier quality to be on a constant decline lately, but I remember his name from the Hetalia dub as I used to be a Hetalia fan.

To be honest I feel terrible for his colleagues, and according to someone at ANN, he might? have a wife and be married. Imagine finding out your colleague, your friend you think you know, and in the case of the wife, your husband, imagine finding out that he's a pedo. That's just devastating. Monica and Jamie are trying to lighten the terrible situation with humor (see the "subway" tweet a few pages back), but imagine how they actually feel. Finding out someone you think you know is actually a heinous deviant is startling, to say the least.
