Game store owner's 290 year child porn sentence

Crime 1

dotarray (1747900) writes "An American man who ran sleepover gaming tournaments at his video games store has been sentenced to nearly 300 years for producing and possessing child pornography.

Leland Beasley, 43, had been running overnight tournaments since 2006, and during these events would videotape himself fondling the sleeping boys and performing lewd actions, as well as sexually abusing them. His behaviour has lead to ten counts of production of child pornography, and two counts of possession – and the largest federal sentence ever handed down for the crime in the eastern district of Missouri, 290 years in prison."

Amazing, they actually busted a guy who abused children instead some sad-sack who downloaded a copy for free.

But, WTF? They charged him with possessing kiddie porn but they didn't charge him with sexual assault of a minor? Sounds like more of the same BS politics to me.
