It's no secret how I feel about Floridians, but this guy right here has an excuse for downloading child pornography that makes Floridians look smart! And trust me, that is hard to do!
This is 54-year-old Ronald Martin from Elizabethtown, PA. On Monday he was sentenced to 3 to 6 years in state prison after claiming that, now get this, an insect possessed him and caused him to download child pornography. It sounds like someone watches too many movies. Martin was charged in May with 77 counts of possession of child pornogrpahy.
Authorities found him in possession of material including children who appeared to be as young as 7 or 8. Other images were of children who appeared to be under the age of 13 involved in explicit sexual acts.
Martin admitted to possessing the images on his computer, after initially suggesting he was the victim of a hack. His wife was the one who called authorities, saying she was frustrated that her husband repeatedly viewed the pornographic material. It also sounds like someone was not getting some from her husband. Just saying.....
The couple told state police that, at some point after he was confronted about the material, Martin was crying and crawling on his hands and knees, stood up, and when he fell back down, a 6 to 8 inch big with a million legs came crawling out of his mouth. Martin implied to the investigating state trooper that the bug possessed him and it was the bug's fault that he downloaded the child porn. If anyone was to believe this, they better get their heads examined. There is no such bug with a million legs!
In court on Monday, however, Martin expressed remorse for his crime and told the judge that he was disgusted by his crime and takes full responsibility. For all 77 counts? I mean Martin is only getting 3 to 6 years for a child porn lover. What is wrong with this picture? He touched himself looking at kids. He should have gotten more than 3 to 6 years! And does he look like he's smiling in this mug shot?
