John Grisham Issues An Apology For Saying Child Pornography Offenders Don't Deserve 'Harsh Prison Sentences'
John Grisham is now offering an apology for saying that punishments for child pornography offenders are too harsh.
“Anyone who harms a child for profit or pleasure, or who in any way participates in child pornography—online or otherwise—should be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” the 59-year-old best-selling author said on his Facebook page.
“My comments made two days ago during an interview with the British newspaper ‘The Telegraph’ were in no way intended to show sympathy for those convicted of sex crimes, especially the sexual molestation of children. I can think of nothing more despicable. I regret having made these comments, and apologize to all,” John concluded in his statement.
