This is a new one on me. It's important though.
Christopher Binck aged 54 of Chester, PA was sentenced to 8 years jail time for "morphing" child pornography.
This is the first case in the region that has been prosecuted successfully.
From what I get out of the article this guy took the heads of two girls he knew in real life and put their heads on two poor kids in child pornography. LE actually found the two children who were in the pornography and this creep has to pay restitution. It's to the tune of $2,000 and some change which is jack. Those kids will be in therapy for years.
Binck the father of five says after 18 months of therapy he now sees what he did was vile.
Most important is there were laws put on the books five years ago that enabled this guy to be prosecuted. Prior he could have gotten away with it by saying since he morphed it that it isn't "real".
omg what a twisted sicko......
he should have to pay restitution to all the kids!
Thanks, Filly. This is, indeed, important. Thank goodness that, for once, they had the foresight to get the law on the books and then use it appropriately. Woohoo!
I'm guessing this would perhaps also cover the anime phenom? I forget what they call that porn that's anime and exploits children. Hoping this serves that as well.
More shocking is the dude is from these parts. Go us. I guess. I mean as far as finally locking somebody up.
