In another case for the Joel Koskan file, William Jacob Stone of Lead is pleading guilty to downloading child pornography. Stone also Photoshopped naked pictures of himself into the foul pix “so it would look like he was the one abusing the children.” I’m not sure that editing naughty pictures is illegal, but gross. Gross gross gross!
On December 16, United States Magistrate Judge Daneta Wollmann accepted Stone’s plea. The charge carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison and five years of supervised release. The court could order that Stone sit in prison for up to twenty years and that he be supervised upon release for the rest of his life.
There is no evidence that Stone actually abused any child. He just obtained pictures of other people abusing kids and imposed gross pictures of himself on those images, apparently to gratify his sick fantasies about abusing children. Yet as they did with another dirty old man last month, the feds are throwing harder punishment at Stone for viewing child porn than the state of South Dakota is considering throwing at Republican politician Joel Koskan for raping his own child for years.
