Follow-up: Youtube prankster goes to jail

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Remember Evan Emory, the guy who got in trouble for editing a video, making it look like he was singing explicit lyrics to 1st graders and posting it to Youtube? Well, he'll be spending next 2 months in jail.
On Tuesday, Judge William C. Marietti of the Muskegon County 14th Circuit Court sentenced Emory under a previously arranged plea deal to 60 days in jail, two years probation, 200 hours of community service, mandatory counseling and fines and costs. And when he emerges from jail, Emory can’t be within 500 feet of children under the age of 17.

Emory in March pleaded no contest to the reduced charge of "unlawful posting of an Internet message with aggravating circumstances." He had been charged with "manufacturing child pornography," a charge that comes with a potential 20-year prison sentence.

Under the reduced charge, Emory will not have to sign up on the sex offender registry, which would have been the biggest crime committed by anyone involved in this case.

Wow, clearly making an example of nothing... Out of order and idiotic judgement. He was clearly not a damaging person to society, he did not need rehabilitation, and yet he's being given probation and a sentence.

One step closer to the totalitarian corporative state. It's become normal in the US to jail dissidents and journalists. People are being tortured by police right on the streets.

Sad to see such a great nation fall apart, and how fast it all went.
