Too many (and any incident of it occurring is too many really) child molestation charges and child porn were leveled at/found on some very high profile T.V. personalities this past year. The multiple levels of the psychological sickness of sexualizing children will never be truly untangled, but for now meet the top three devils of these crimes from our brightest and best known…
Puck Is Fucked
Mark Salling, “Glee” actor, was just arrested for child pornography. A search warrant for the actor’s residence found “alleged illicit material” and Salling, whose nickname on the popular FOX show is “Puck,” was subsequently booked for possession of child porn. Rumor has it that over 1,000 images of child porn were found on Salling’s computer leading the police to their search.
More Than Merely A Loss Of Weight
Jared Fogle was far from an actor when he began his own Subway® diet, but he did indeed become the fast food chain’s spokesman after losing 245 pounds eating a Subway sub twice a day. For sixteen years Fogle worked for Subway® but will now spend 15 years in federal prison for pleading guilty to child pornography and crossing state lines to pay for sex with minors (16 and 17 year old girls actually).
The Case Of Josh Duggar
Josh Duggar, the eldest child of the popular Christian clan starring in TLC’s reality show “19 Kids and Counting” was found to have molested five young girls on multiple occasions. In Touch magazine broke the news that a teenage Duggar committed these acts between 2002-2003 but was never prosecuted (he was simply sent to a Christian treatment center), supposedly confessed his acts to his folks on multiple occasions (parents Jim Bob and Michelle part of the TLC show) and of the five girls molested, four were his sisters!
Though “19 Kids and Counting” has been cancelled TLC has premiered a show centered around two of the Duggar sisters called “Jill & Jessa: Counting On.”
Surely the above are some of the better known cases of these particularly nasty crimes occurring (Duggar and Fogle made MSN.com’s Biggest Celebrity Career Crashes list for the year-http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets/the-15-biggest-career-crashes-of-2015/ss-BBo3FvN) But unfortunately the abuse of children happens all the time, perpetrated by men and women (even teens) in just about every corner of the globe, one need not to a T.V. star to find this kind of infamy.
