James Shawn Hulsey – Infant molestor pornographer gets 480 years

United States Attorney Alice H. Martin stated, “Hulsey’s abuse of this toddler and infant deserved every day of the 480 years he was sentenced to by Judge Johnson. May the light of day be denied to anyone who would abuse a child in this manner.”


Husley and a female companion used a female child, who was only a few months old, and a male child, who was less than two years old, to produce child pornography. Husley and the female companion produced pictures of each other engaging in sexually explicit conduct with the minor children.

A Montevallo man was sentenced Monday to 480 years in federal prison for producing child pornography with kids under the age of two.

In the unlikely event that James Shawn Hulsey, 43, is ever released from prison, he also was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Inge Johnson to supervised release for the remainder of his natural life, will have to register as a sex offender and can have no unsupervised contact with minors.

Hulsey was arrested in August 2007 after being indicted on similar state charges in Bibb County the month before.

Bibb County District Attorney Michael Jackson said state and federal authorities were led to Hulsey’s child porn activities after he supplied court officials with a computer disc of his wife performing sex acts with the couple’s children almost a year earlier.

At the time, the girl was just a few months old and the boy younger than 2 years old, court documents said.

‘We appreciate the judge’s sentence for that amount of time,’ Jackson said. ‘That’s essentially a life without parole sentence.

‘I think that kind of sentence sends a powerful message that child abuse will not be tolerated.’

Jackson said Hulsey turned over the disc after being arrested on charges of violating the parole restrictions from a previous armed robbery conviction in Jefferson County.

Hulsey suspected that his wife, Christine Staggs McKim, had turned him in for the violation, Jackson said.

After seeing the contents of the disc, McKim, 24, was arrested on several charges, including producing porn with a minor, permitting a child to act in an obscene manner and first-degree sodomy.

McKim’s charges are still pending, Jackson said, and he was unsure of he future court dates.

Investigators also searched the home of Hulsey and McKim.

After finding a computer, authorities conducted a forensic search and turned up evidence of Hulsey also engaging in the acts.

Jackson said Hulsey still faces more than 30 state charges in Bibb County, including first- degree sodomy, two counts of child abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor and permitting a child to participate in the production of obscene materials.

Simpsons cartoon rip-off is child porn

A Supreme Court judge has ruled that an internet cartoon, in which child characters resembling those from The Simpsons engage in sexual acts, is child pornography.

In a landmark finding, Justice Michael Adams today upheld a magistrate’s decision convicting a man of possessing child pornography after the cartoons – depicting characters modelled on Bart, Lisa and Maggie engaging in sex acts – were found on his computer.

The main issue of the case was whether a fictional cartoon character could “depict” a “person” under law.

Alan John McEwan had been convicted in the Parramatta Local Court of possessing child pornography and of using a carriage service to access child pornography material, the latter of which has a maximum penalty of 10 years’ jail.

The male figures in the cartoons had what appeared to be human genitalia, as did the mother and the girl depicted in the cartoons.

The magistrate said that, had the images involved real children, McEwan would have been jailed.

However, he was fined $3000 and required to enter into a two-year good behaviour bond in respect to each of the charges.

McEwan appealed against the decision, arguing that fictional cartoon characters could not be considered people as they “plainly and deliberately” departed from the human form.

“If the persons were real, such depictions could never be permitted,” Justice Adams said in his judgment. “Their creation would constitute crimes at the very highest end of the criminal calendar.”

But Justice Adams agreed with the magistrate. He found that, while The Simpsons characters had hands with four fingers and their faces were “markedly and deliberately different to those of any possible human being”, the mere fact that they were not realistic representations of human beings did not mean that they could not be considered people.

Justice Adams said the purpose of the legislation was to stop sexual exploitation and child abuse where images of “real” children are depicted.

However it was also to deter the production of other material, including cartoons, that could “fuel demand for material that does involve the abuse of children”.

He dismissed the appeal and ordered each party to pay its own costs as it was “the first case dealing with [this] difficult issue”.
