Copped a plea and got probation, no jail time, for 16 counts of possession of child pornography.
Well, so much for the treasured Republican mantra, “personal accountability.” And what was Judge Golden thinking? Kiddie porn addicts, and perverts who want to have sex with children, are hardly the best candidates for rehabilitation. In fact, they’re the worst.
Claims to fame: Republican mayor of Green Oaks, Illinois, 1993-2006; chairman, county Republican Party, 2002-2004; Internet kiddie-porn suspect
Moral apex: Arrested in July, 2006, after police traced child pornography sent via email (under three different screen names) to an undercover police officer back to a computer in Adams’ home.
Where he is now: Awaiting trial, scheduled to begin April 21, 2008, on “multiple counts of dissemination and possession of child pornography.” Conviction of a single distribution charge carries a mandatory prison sentence of at least four years.
Suggested Bible reading for Mr. Adams, until a verdict is reached:
Recall the past for me: let us argue together; declare thou the case for thy innocence.
