‘PEDOGATE’ CRACKDOWN CONTINUES: SINGER AUSTIN JONES ARRESTED ON CHILD PORN CHARGES

CHICAGO, IL — Austin Jones, a well known singer with nearly a half million YouTube subscribers, has been arrested on two charges of creating child porn. Jones, 24, is accused of asking underage fans to send him sexually explicit videos and images.

Donning a prison issued orange jump suit and ankle chains, Jones appeared in U.S. District Court in Chicago on Tuesday after being arrested at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport where he had just returned from an international tour.

Asked by U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael Mason if he understood that he was being charged with two counts of production of child pornography, Jones responded, “Yes, your honor.”

According to the criminal complaint, Jones asked two victims, identified as Victim A and Victim B, to make and send him sexually explicit videos of them engaged in various states of undress. His “primary fan base appears to be teenage girls,” the complaint reads (https://www.scribd.com/document/351203585/Austin-Jones-Child-Porn-Complaint-WARNING-Disturbing-content).

The complaint further alleges that on incidents occurring in May 2017, and August 2016, which the singer referred to as “tryouts”, Jones directed the children on how to perform sex acts, and advised them on what to wear and what to say.

“I’m just trying to help you!” Jones allegedly wrote in an online chat with Victim B about his lewd requests. “I know you’re trying your hardest to prove you’re my biggest fan. And I don’t want to have to find someone else.”

Jones’ home was searched Monday and he was interviewed by Homeland Security Investigations upon being taken into custody.

A bond hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

Jones’ arrest is just the latest in a series of pedophilia related arrests that have swept the nation since President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Trump, a father of 5, made declaring war on child sex trafficking in the U.S. a priority if elected after recent revelations tied several high profile Democrats to child sex abuse (http://nypost.com/2017/05/19/anthony-weiner-will-plead-guilty-to-sexting-with-a-15-year-old-girl/) (http://nypost.com/2017/05/26/de-blasio-staffer-arrested-for-child-pornography/) (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/11/20/gay-rights-activist-ex-boyfriend-arrested/70021218/).

    Anthony Weiner is the only “high profile democrat” on this list. One you linked to was from 3 yeasts ago. You also fail to include or acknowledge any of the recent republican child sex scandals.
