In Prison for Child Porn: Don’t let this happen to you

My heart broke as I read this man’s story — sentenced to more than 17 years for looking at child pornography.  His story should be a real eye-opener to all those are hooked on porn and getting into deeper stuff.  His story is real.  Here’s a snippet:

“I was mostly attracted to the young woman of the Eastern European sites where the girls spoke broken English. I only know this from little snippets of video somehow found online. For me, viewing these “forbidden” bits of video clips gave me a “high” and then I was off to the races looking for more. Worming my way around the net. Role playing despicable characters online, looking to get the next bit of the video.

I was a commercial fisherman fishing the Gulf of Mexico before I changed over to captaining private yachts. Fishing gave me a rush, every time you pulled your gear you never know what you are going to catch. I found a similar thrill going online. Searching out and catching video clips or pictures that are “off limits.” A thrill in doing something I’m not supposed to do, being an “outlaw,” not really thinking I was harming anyone. And I became a collector, no, more of a hoarder of smut.

I had worked the water all my life. I was very good at what I did. I traveled throughout the Caribbean, and I had many opportunities to make very good money transporting “items,” yet, I turned it all that down. I was reasonable, logical, and I didn’t want to jeopardize my family. No amount of money was worth going to prison.

But I am now serving a 210-month prison sentence in Loreto, PA: a medium/low Federal Correction Institution.”
