Well, that's it, I guess. Christopher Handley has pleaded guilty to the charges against him, specifically for possessing drawings of children being sexually abused. According to a press release from the Department of Justice, Handley could face up to 15 years in jail and a $250,000 fine.

Personally, I think this is the wrong move for him, but it may be that he just doesn't have the money to fight this as far as it could go. For a while now, I've been trying to put this ComiPress article into words for all of you, but I'll simply direct you to it. The author is a lawyer for NAMBLA, but it doesn't make his article any less valid. Give it a read through to see a much deeper image of the case.

Another point made over at TCJ by Dirk Deppey is thus: Why is it that Alan Moore's The Lost Girls, which features underage girls in sexually explicit situations, can be sold in stores, when Handley is being prosecuted for this? They may be targeted next -- who knows. All I can say is that this is all very depressing to hear.
