JOHN GRISHAM: ‘Lighter Prison Sentences For Child Porn Sex Offenders’

While speaking with The Telegraph, the best-selling author explained his viewpoint, stating that he has, “no sympathy for real pedophiles – God, please lock those people up. But many of these guys do not deserve harsh prison sentences.”

The cause is a personal one for Grisham, as he explained a friend of his was sentenced to three years in jail after being nabbed in a child porn sting by the Canadian Royal Mounted Police.

“It happened to a lawyer friend of mine, a good buddy from law school. They haven’t hurt anyone. They deserve some type of punishment, whatever, but 10 years in prison?”

He argued that there are too many sex offenders who are locked up.

“And there is so many of them now. There is so many sex offenders – is what they are called – that they put them in the same prison. Like they are a bunch of perverts or something. Thousands of them. We’ve gone nuts with this incarceration,” he declared.

I agree with the fact that there are too many locked up, because they should’ve been shot in the head once they were found guilty of their crimes. -MD
