I think everyone is missing the point or over reacting.
The person did something no sane producer would do ... He miss represented himself and his filming to place children in a sexual situation against
their parents knowledge. When you film an actor like this you use a 'nudity rider' form or a similar sex act contract. The contact explicitly states
what acts will occur to protect the while production. The rules for this are twice as strict for children. I also get the impression he did not state
the video was fiction.
There have been cases even when rules have been followed of children being bullied and victimised for being in funny adverts etc ... So what this
person did is pretty serious. Man boy and Ashton's nonsense is not the same league.
Those were people with legal consent. (probably fifty odd pages of it)
On one hand this was really dumb and wrong. On the other it is the equivalent of reckless driving on a bicycle - no judge in their right mind would
give a maximum penalty. (one did in queensland and got fired actually)
The law is always setting precedents and such. This case will be no different. What he did has to be taken seriously due to how the law works. If
anyone could video your child and cut them into a sex scene under the guise of humour it could get bad pretty quickly.
