(June 25) -- A Tennessee man is facing charges of aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor for what authorities say are three pictures -- none of them featuring an actual child's body.

Instead, according to testimony presented at Michael Wayne Campbell's preliminary hearing in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on Wednesday, the photos feature the faces of three young girls placed on the nude bodies of adult females, CNN affiliate WDEF reported.

 

 

Hamilton County Det. Michael Cox said Campbell told authorities "he wanted to see what they would look like as adults," according to WDEF.

Two of the faces were of local girls -- a 10-year-old and 12-year-old, the station reported. The third face appears to be Miley Cyrus, 16, star of Disney's popular television series "Hannah Montana" and its big-screen adaptation, "Hanna Montana: The Movie," according to WDEF.

Investigators do not believe Campbell had any contact with the three girls, but "when you have the face of a small child affixed to a nude body of a mature woman, it's going to be the state's position that this is for sexual gratification and that this is simulated sexual activity," Assistant District Attorney Dave Denny said during Wednesday's hearing. Attempts to contact Denny by CNN Wednesday were unsuccessful.

 

Cases like Campbell's present a unique legal issue. The U.S. Supreme Court in 2002 ruled that "virtual child pornography," in which no children were actually harmed, is protected speech and does not constitute a crime.

Since then, "more and more of these guys are using morphed images, image manipulations" in an attempt to circumvent prosecution, Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, said Wednesday.

Such attempts are not always successful, Allen said, as charges can still be filed under obscenity laws or other statutes. Also, other avenues can be pursued when the faces used are those of real, identifiable people, he said.

"We see it all the time," Allen said. "It makes it harder for law enforcement. It makes it tougher for prosecutors."

"It's definitely on the increase," said Justin Fitzsimmons, a former prosecutor and senior attorney with the National Center for the Prosecution of Child Abuse, part of the National District Attorneys' Association. "People are trying to come up with creative ways to continue to sexually exploit children using digital evidence."

Can't he just claim he's an artist?

 

 

don't think so. TN also has this weird law about not having to prove the age of the minor in the photo.

 

 

my main thought is that this is really touchy. no real children were harmed, but dude is obviously a sick fuck. i don't really know where i stand on the whole thing.

Think of it this way, 20 years ago it probably wouldn't have been a crime.

Most people would have thought it was either weird, or funny and wouldn't have gotten mad about it (unless it was their daughters face being used).

This is just another example of the modern day witch-hunt for pedos.

And what do you mean by "TN also has this weird law about not having to prove the age of the minor in the photo."

Are you saying that you can get convicted just cause the chick looks like a minor?

its sick alright. illegal, probably not imo. think of all the celebrity heads that get pasted onto pronz pics daily. would that be cause for a defamation of character suit? probably not. at most he should get the dogshit kicked outta him by one of these girl's dads.

And seriously, who gives a fuck if dude jerks off to children?

As long as he's not actually trying to fuck them, where's the problem?

How you gonna legislate how people think?

I thought this was supposed to be a "free country"?

yep.

 

btw: just read that the supreme court views virtual cp as protected free speech. this may get thrown out.

 

i still don't know where i stand on it.

 

the logic side says it's free speech.

 

the moral side says that it's still fucked up.

Morals are open to interpretation, and are corruptible by shit like religion and politics.

Logic never faulters.

When in doubt, go with logic.

well, my morals aren't corrupted by religion. politics, maybe sometimes.

not this time.

 

thinking about it like a parent might is playing a big role in it.

 

except for miley cyrus. we all know her dad has thought about doggin' it.

fuckin' hillbilly.

No pun intended?

 

This is a complicated issue though. Sick fucks no doubt, but it brings into line the same type of argument as would you rather have any type of sex offender looking at porn over actually doing the act. Unfortunately, I don't believe the overall population of these types really has the self control to keep fantasy from becoming reality.

if he used local girls faces to put on these adult bodies this means he is having real thoughts about abusing the local girls.

 

which makes him guilty of the charges

Guilty of what?

I've jerked off to 100s of bitches in my lifetime that I never bothered to try and fuck IRL.

Does that make me guilty of rape?

 

Anybody who thinks this guy is guilty of anything is a fucking moron.
