Hey everyone! Remember the ACLU Chief that got caught with Child Porn??? He just got seven years. Not enough of course, but at least something. Hopefully he’ll find a friend in prison named Bubba. From the Washington Post:
Va.’s Ex-ACLU Chief Gets 7 Years for Child Porn
A former Arlington County youth sports coach and civil rights lawyer who once headed Virginia’s American Civil Liberties Union chapter was sentenced today to seven years in federal prison for buying child pornography that prosecutors labeled sadistic and masochistic.
Charles Rust-Tierney, 51, pleaded guilty in June to downloading hundreds of pornographic images of children as young as 4. Authorities said Rust-Tierney used a computer in his 11-year-old son’s bedroom to view the files, which included a six-minute video that depicted sexual torture of children, set to a song by the rock band Nine Inch Nails….
Back in February, WUSA9 Television reported the details:
Youth Coach In Court On Child Porn Charges
….Fifty-one year old Charles Rust-Tierney appeared in United States District Court in Alexandria Wednesday.
Heâ€™s accused of receiving and possessing child pornography, and investigators outlined what they say they found after searching his home.
They say Rust-Tierney had video showing, among other things, the sexual torture of infants and toddlers. The judge said sheâ€™d never heard of child pornography that vile and said because of that, Rust-Tierney would stay behind bars until his trial.
Rust-Tierney is a father himself and also a coach of Arlington-area youth little league and soccer teams….
The ACLU has a lengthy history of defending child pornography as a First Amendment right to free speech.

The ACLU evolved from organized efforts to thwart the United States’ military agenda during World War One. It was founded by communist sympathizer Roger Nash Baldwin, who remained its executive director until 1950.
