John Grisham Says Child Porn “Not So Bad;” Claims Offenders “May Have the Cure for Ebola”

John Grisham, critically-acclaimed author of several legal suspense novels such as A Time to Kill, The Rainmaker, and, most recently, Gray Mountain, recently said in an interview with the UK-based Daily Telegraph that people who look at child pornography are not fairly tried in court. “You see, I have friends that have looked at child porn,” Grisham states, “and they got sent away for ten, fifteen years. Is that fair? Is our justice system fair? Absolutely not. These friends were drunk and unaware of what they were looking up. It’s really not so bad.” The author then went on saying that the sites they visited contained photos of “sixteen-year-old girls,” then stated “it’s not like they were little boys.”

When asked what he thought would be fair punishment for these offenders, Grisham defended them by saying, “I don’t know a hundred percent, but it shouldn’t be years! I wholeheartedly believe that these people are just misunderstood, mistaken, and perpetually inebriated. What if some Joe Schmo is locked up that may have the cure for Ebola? You’re going to feel awfully silly throwing that man in maximum security prison for simply looking at some naked kids when everyone’s bleeding from the eyes. It’s just ridiculous.”

Grisham has also gone on the record saying that he knows a serial arsonist in prison who has “for sure” unlocked the secrets of time travel.
