We all know the downside of being exploited by a pervy adult and ending up in child pornography: the loss of innocence that can never be regained at the hands of a sick, scrofulous dirtbag that couldn’t get laid in a whorehouse.
As well as the mortification and shame of knowing that, no matter what you do, those pictures are out there forever, all for the disgusting delectation of a subhuman subset of society that would be best deprived of oxygen until that crazy ol’ Judgement Trumpet do a-blow.
But did you know that there’s an upside? Some child porn stars get Paid, with a capital P.
Okay, that’s bullshit. There is no upside.
But sometimes judges do take all of the molester’s property and give it to the victims. Just ask Adam Geoffrey Frankel with his funky-fresh tribal facial tats.
What tribe is he a member of, you ask? The tribe of former homeowners that fiddled with kids and lost all their shit because of it.
The 33-year-old Cary, NC man joined that tribe last Thursday, when Chief United States District Judge James C. Dever III seized his house and ordered him to pay $293,500 in restitution to some of the children he exploited.
Frankel’s problems with the law began last September when he was charged with manufacturing, receiving and possessing child pornography (each is a separate charge). These charges stem from a federal investigation that began in October 2014 in conjunction with the Cary Police Department.
When authorities searched Frankel’s home, they found an expert-grade stash of kiddie porn consisting of “at least 136,350 images.” They also found evidence of Frankel’s directorial desires, learning that he had convinced underaged girls to video themselves performing sexual acts (hence the manufacturing charge).
Last December, Frankel took a plea deal and copped to the manufacturing charge. Merry Christmas, asshole!
On May 24th, he got his long-awaited Christmas present: a shiny new 25-year sentence and a hefty fine. And no more house.
Of the $293,500, $250,000 will go to the identified victim of Frankel’s perverted movie studio, and the remainder will be split between the three identified victims of the non-homemade porn that Frankel had.
Frankel probably thinks he got the raw end of the deal. Just wait, dude.
