When Cartoon Porn Becomes A Thought Crime: Man Guilty The Simpsons Sex Crime

simpsonsmovie1CARTOON Porn and Thought Crime Update: Kurt James Milner, of Ipswich, Australia, is on the sex-offenders’ register having admitted in Ipswich District Court to downloading graphic cartoon porn images featuring child characters from The Simpsons and The Powerpuff Girls TV shows.

That’s right – for looking at cartoon porn he got sentenced. When does the mind of the individual becomes the business of the police? When did thinking of a crime amount to committing one?

The 28-year-old is now a registered sex offender. Police found 64 images of “cartoon child exploitation material” in the machine’s recycle bin.

The images depicted figures from The Simpsons, The Powerpuff Girls and The Incredibles in sexually explicit positions. Milner, a former security guard, told police he downloaded the images to show them to his friend “because he believed they were funny”.

Is this a decent defence? It would seem not. Porn is porn. But what of this poser: you walk past a Pripaic drawing on a wall of Bart Simpson shagging Snoopy the dog – and look at it. Are you guilty of a crime? Are you guilty of a crime if you deliberately went to see the artwork? What is the difference between downloading and taking a book from a shelf and having a flick through it?

He pleaded guilty to charges of possessing child exploitation material and using a carriage service to access child exploitation material. Milner was sentenced to 12 months jail but it was wholly suspended for five years. A conviction was recorded. He was also given a $1000 good behaviour bond for five years.

This not to say that Mr Milner is not a pervert of the lowest order, and it does not require a leap of judgement to think he got some sexual gratification from his cartoons:

The Leichhardt resident was convicted of possessing child exploitation material in 2003 after 59 sexual images of actual youngsters were found on his computer. He received two years probation with no conviction recorded.

But these latest images are of cartoon characters, drawings. Not his drawings, mind, but ones created by the minds and pens of others. Had a child seen the drawings, would they be at risk of committing an offence against their peers, and thus guilty, becsue that is being presumed: you act on what you see? The 14-year-old with the dirty mind is not a single, overweight, bespectacled 28-year-old man. Which fits the bill for our fears?

“Although these offences involve cartoon characters it is nonetheless serious especially since he has a prior conviction for child exploitation material,” Ms Cantatore said. Defence lawyer Matthew Fairclough said his client did not get any sexual gratification from the cartoons. “It was more about amusement,” Mr Fairclough said.

Who can tell what goes on in the minds of another? Answer: the police.
