  1. I was hoping it was something like him having a nude some stupid ex-gf sent him who was like 17 and then he shared it, which I suppose would technically count as…um..cheese pizza. But that doesn’t appear to be the case. I truly hope he DID ‘think it was legal’ at the very least, and not just something he’s saying after the fact. Purely for the sake of himself. There have been a few cases of legitimate porn operations who have put out productions featuring underaged girls who look 18, and I guess they had some kind of fake ID to trick them.

    But hey, we’ve got good news about Sam Hartman looking at UF to transfer so the day isn’t all bad.
