This case interests me as this young man readily admitted that he'd been viewing child porn since he was 15. He speaks of dreams and fetishes. Studies are showing that child porn collectors were often (not always) sexually abused as children and are often drawn to look at child porn which closely matches the age of their abuse. I don't think the experts even understand why. In the eyes of the law, a 19 year old is really no different that a 49 year old. Many men say they want help but they don't get it in prison. There's absolutely no treatment for most, just incarceration. I truly wonder what happens when someone really does want to stop. Four years of viewing these images as a teen would be devastating to the brain, IMO. I'm very concerned about the sibling in that home.

He spoke of dreams that he has, as well as fetishes. He said he has had hundreds of videos and pictures of child pornography over the last four years. While he is by himself when he views the images, he said he “did show one guy from school one time....”
