Kiddie-Porn Lovers at OC Libraries

[Moxley Confidential] Three men, including a brazen public-library abuser, get punished for kiddie porn

Three federal judges in Orange County punished Paine, Thurman and Golder, and none was lenient. Judge David O. Carter sentenced Thurman—who used his mother's declining health for sympathy—to a term of 60 months in federal prison, plus 20 years of supervised probation. Judge Josephine Staton Tucker handed Golder—who also used his mother's declining health for sympathy—a term of 78 months, plus 10 years of probation. But Judge Cormac J. Carney doled out the most severe punishment: The 69-year-old Paine won a 120-month trip to prison. After he emerges back into society as he prepares to turn 80, he will spend the rest of his life forced to submit to potential, round-the-clock, warrantless inspections by federal agents.

Doomsday hasn't yet arrived for Golder and Thurman; they've been ordered to self-surrender to the U.S. Marshal for imprisonment on, respectively, May 3 and May 10. Paine, who requires an electronic-breathing apparatus, is presently housed at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Los Angeles.
