Recently, Christopher Handley, an anime/manga enthusiast was sentenced to jail for six months for importing manga containing cartoon depictions of underage girls engaging in sexual activities. He possessed no non-cartoon child pornography and his lolicon manga consisted of a “small percentage” of his anima/manga collections, which number in the thousands. Handley pleaded guilty to violating the Protect Act of 2003. He faced a possible prison term of fifteen years.
If the dude has serious sexual desires for 10-year-old chicks, he needs help, not tossed in jail. There is a fine line between Lolita and a lot of these mangas. And this line determines whether one spends fifteen years in PITA prison for reading a comic book. A comic book that is legal in Japan.
