Mark Salling's Child Pornography Case Dismissed

Mark Salling‘s child pornography case has been dismissed.

The United States Attorney requested the dismissal earlier this week, which was then was granted by United States District Judge Otis D. Wright, The Blast reports.

“For good cause shown, it is hereby ordered that: The government’s motion to dismiss the indictment pursuant to Rule 48 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure is granted. The indictment in the above referenced case is dismissed without prejudice,” the legal papers read.

Since the case was dismissed “without prejudice,” it can be re-filed if prosecutors choose.

Salling was supposed to be sentenced in March after pleading guilty last year. He committed suicide last month at the age of 35.

    You realize people have been dying long before government was a thing, right? The American judicial system is barely an authority on the living…I assure you it has no role postmortem.

    uh you can’t convict a dead person his charges were vacated as was Hernandez’s murder conviction in the Odin Lloyd case and his pending charges in his other murder case

    He was suppose to pay 50,000 dollars to each victim in the videos and photos. When he killed himself, he robbed the victims of that too. The guy was disgusting. He had an entire manual on how to force a child penetration, so it was very clear he was planning to do more. He had labeled each folders “2 yrs old”, “1 yr olds”, etc. One of the cops have said they had never seen this much child pornographey ever and that he might be the person with the biggest haul they ever caught.

    Hopefully the victims can sue his estate.

    If looking at pictures keeps someone from actually doing it then making it illegal causes more real life attacks on children so making child porn illegal is counterproductive. Also, what if someone plants child porn on your computer as a dirty trick? But govts have to look like they’re doing something no matter now ineffectual. Making pictures of drugs illegal wouldnt stop people from taking drugs either.
