[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]A former executive for the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia has been sentenced to eight years in prison after he admitted having "graphic and violent" child pornography. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]The guilty plea was entered in court in Virginia by Charles Rust-Tierney, where he was immediately sentenced, according to a report today from WJLA television. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]Rust-Tierney previously had served as the president of the Virginia chapter of the ACLU, and admitted his guilt under a plea bargain. He had been in jail since his arrest earlier this year, because two separate judges in pretrial hearings had rejected his request for freedom, describing the pornography as some of the most sickening they ever had encountered. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]It was Rust-Tierney who, nearly 10 years ago, had argued before the Loudoun County Library Board against any Internet filters on the computers at the public facility. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]The library, which had been using filters on its computers, was ordered to change its policy by a federal court. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]"The ACLU of Virginia urges the board to carefully consider a new Internet Use Policy that allows for maximum Internet access…," he said at the time. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]He encouraged the library board to recognize "that individuals will continue to behave responsibly and appropriately while in the library," so therefore "the default should be maximum, unrestricted access to ... the Internet." [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]Prosecutors said Rust-Tierney, who also served as a youth league sports coach in the area, actually downloaded the materials on a computer in his son's bedroom at home. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]As WND reported, the 51-year-old was arrested in February and was indicted in May on charges of having what a U.S. magistrate described as "the most perverted and nauseating and sickening type of child pornography" she ever had seen. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]He was the Virginia ACLU president until 2005 and served on the group's board until the day he was arrested. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]Authorities said he used his own credit card and his own e-mail address to access and purchase an estimated $1,000 in graphic and violent child pornography during 2005 and 2006, according to Virginia's North Country Gazette. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]Magistrate Theresa Buchanan said the material included an extended video featuring the sexual torture of children, accompanied by a song by the band called Nine Inch Nails. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]He faced a maximum sentence of 11 to 14 years on each of two counts, had he not reached a plea agreement. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]Court records indicate Rust-Tierney had subscribed to several websites featuring child pornography over a period of years. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]The federal indictment alleged he "knowingly received multiple computer files that contained photo and video depictions of minor teenage and prepubescent children engaging in sexually explicit conduct." [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]An anonymous chat room participant on the cannablog was distressed by the low profile in the national media over the case. When Rust-Tierney's arrest first was announced, authorities didn't even mention either his ACLU or youth league coaching connections. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]"This man was the PRESIDENT of the Virginia ACLU and while he was president, he lobbied to keep the Internet available to child pornographers via any port available, and WHILE he was president he was engaged in purchasing and subscribing to child (infant and toddler torture) pornography for his personal and sexual gratification. The ACLU. Pouring money into a machine that victimizes children. For years. And that the media is keeping this out of sight is okay with you? Wow," he said. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]Fox News' Bill O'Reilly called it a "horrifying" case. And he noted that the two "biggest left-wing outfits in the country – the New York Times and NBC News – ignored the story entirely." CBS News, CNN and most of the big city liberal newspapers also failed to cover the Rust-Tierney arrest, Fox said. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]Several area broadcast stations and newspapers actually started covering the case as it headed towards a conclusion. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]"That Mr. Rust-Tierney, a leading proponent of unrestricted access to the Internet, has now been arrested for receiving and possessing graphic child pornography should serve as testimony to the injudicious and baleful outgrowth of the legal challenges launched by the ACLU questioning the constitutionality of important legislation that protects children from Internet exploitation and content harmful to minors," said a statement released by spokeswoman Cris Clapp of Enough is Enough, an organization dedicated to protecting children from the dangers on the Internet. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]"When Mr. Rust-Tierney argued before the Loudoun County Library Board that unrestricted access to the resources of the Internet was essential for our children's ability to learn and communicate, and when groups like the ACLU contend that acceptable use policies alone are capable of protecting children online, they fail to acknowledge the tragic and devastating effects to children and families of both intentional and unintentional access to online pornography," the statement said. [/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino, Book Antiqua, Times New Roman, Georgia, Times]The investigation that resulted in Rust-Tierney's arrest was conducted by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, as well as Arlington County police as part of the Northern Virginia and District of Columbia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.[/FONT]

How do you subscribe to child porn?
Maybe I'm naive, but wouldn't that be easy to track down the headquarters or whatever or the site?
That takes balls to subscribe to.

Additionally how does a credit card company accept transactions for a child porn distributor?
