Child porn statement apology

16 Oct, 2014

Grisham apologizes for statements made during an interview with The Daily Telegraph regarding the incarceration of people viewing child porn. In a post to his Facebook page:

Anyone who harms a child for profit or pleasure, or who in any way participates in child pornography— online or otherwise — should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. My comments made two days ago during an interview with the British newspaper The Telegraph were in no way intended to show sympathy for those convicted of sex crimes, especially the sexual molestation of children. I can think of nothing more despicable…I regret having made these comments, and apologize to all.
