The people that say the fandom doesn't have a problem with this are idiots.

The fandom doesn't have a problem with this.

The subfandom, IE, the babyfurs/etc, reported this guy.

The fandom DOES have a problem with the famous people like Frank Gembeck who are pedophiles who don't get reported.

See the difference?

Gembeck goes years being a pedophile. Gets away with it.

Allan doesn't even get to meet ONE TEENAGER, and he's going to prison.

I still find it funny that Alans ad said he was looking for someone around the 20 and 25 age and being at least semi-independent, something thats not unreasonable, but then he gets involved with this 15 year old kid and it blows up. Whatever happened between them must have been really THAT special if he was willing to overlook the age difference. Its a lot like licking sugar coated cocaine if you think about it - that is if such a thing exists. Its also possible, though pretty unlikely, that he didnt know he was a minor all this time.

Your rating: None

Even if you know you didn't do something, would you risk your life in front of a jury to prove it? C'mon, it's like no one's ever heard of a plea deal.

Not saying he's not guilty or anything, but there's a lot more to these kinds of stories than the media proclaims.
