3 years in prison for having loli/shotacon doujins.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - A Monett man pleaded guilty in federal court Monday to possessing cartoons that depicted child pornography.
Christjan Bee, 36, of Monett, pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge James C. England to possessing obscenity. That's according to David M. Ketchmark, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri.
He says on August 8, 2011, Bee's wife contacted the Monett Police Department and reported that she had found files she believed to be child pornography on a computer used by her husband. Police officers executed a search warrant at Bee's residence and seized his computer.
During the forensic examination of Bee's computer, a collection of electronic comics, entitled "incest comics," were discovered on the computer. These comics contained multiple images of minors engaging in graphic sexual intercourse with adults and other minors. The depictions clearly lack any literary, artistic, political or scientific value.
Under the terms of today's plea agreement, the government will recommend a sentence of three years in federal prison without parole.
A sentencing hearing will be scheduled after the completion of a pre-sentence investigation by the United States Probation Office
Also, who are they too decide those "comics" don't have any artistic value?
The justice system shows it worth once once again(/sarcasm).
This is so much bullshit I don't even know where to begin.
Firstly if your married, you think the guy would atleast lock his computer every time he is AFK. Also why doesn't he have a password on that thing? Or why not hide the files? I'm mean you can easily just zip everything and lock it with a password.
Anyways...... Guy got caught with a strange hobby his wife didn't like. I hope he doesn't have kids, if he did I believe they would be stuck with some police man with doll asking them if they dad did this and that to them.

^She is over 500 years-old. I guess every hentai doujinshi about her is pretty fucking legal.
Unfortunately that won't help you much. In this case the prosecution would focus on how she looks underage rather than her implied age. Similarly if you had a doujin with a character who looked 18 but was stated that she was only 15 the prosecution would focus on her implied age VS her physical appearance. I know it sounds hypocritical but a prosecutors job is to convict people not necessarily to find justice. Plea deals are the same way, they are a method of guaranteeing a conviction.
My advice is to not store those images on your computer. I would even go so far as to remove anything that could be considered "questionable" as well. You should also protect access to your computer. One curious person with a moral agenda could turn your world upside down. If you do find yourself in this situation don't say a word to anyone and immediately get a lawyer.
Edit: It seems I have to accurate myself because I thought talking about 2D human trafficking was transparent enough so to two guys below yes I am joking.
Have some confidence, just because your joke went over a few peoples heads doesn't mean no one got it. Save the edits and let the more perceptive people enjoy the joke in its subtlety while we share a laugh at those who missed it.

Honestly? Good riddance.
But prison might be bit harsh for that kind of thing. I vote for Arkham Asylum.
ok, being serious now. some sort of action should be done against him but not quite sure what. prison is harsh for the creep but maybe they are trying to make an example out of him.

Oh, I don't disagree with you on that stance. I know if I possessed something like the man in this story did, one of the first things that would cross my mind would be, "is this legal?" One thing that's a little bit of a detriment in the United States is there are an insane amount of laws and laws vary from state-to-state. Some things are legal in some states where they are illegal in others.
It's not possible to know EVERY law in the book. Hell, I know police officers that either don't know all the laws or how to enforce them properly. However, I do understand and agree that if there's a case where you're doing something that you're not sure is legal, make an effort to find out if it is or not. My biggest complaint about this story isn't so much the legality, I just don't think the punishment fits the crime.

Monad said:You're correct.
Even if you dont know the laws, you must feel that what you are doing is wrong. How else to explain the fact that he hid it from his wife.
People also hid the fact they are watching anime. Is watching anime wrong? People don't hid stuff because they are wrong. They hid them because they will be misunderstand or not understood.
I was under my impression of marriage and trust between man and a wife, but that's another thing.
Right about the anime as well, though I dont understand the hiding, but that's different topic.
