The incident began on Feb. 12 when Emory filmed himself performing several songs for a class of first-graders at Beechnau Elementary School.
A deal is in the works between Emory and prosecutors that would downgrade his child sex crime case to a felony count of posting harmful information on the Internet if he pleads guilty, Muskegon County Sheriff Dean Roesler told AOL News. Originally Emory faced a maximum 20-year prison sentence with a lifetime registration as a sex offender. The deal would involve jail time, five years' probation and community service, but no registration as a sex offender.
Emory brought a videographer with him and gave instructions to get shots of the children looking surprised and then angry. When the children left, Emory asked the teacher if he could stay behind for additional filming, and that's when the second song was recorded, Ravenna School District Superintendent John VanLoon told AOL News.
The incident began on Feb. 12 when Emory filmed himself performing several songs for a class of first-graders at Beechnau Elementary School. He later spliced in something else entirely -– another song with sexually explicit gestures and lyrics such as "I'll be the bus riding your *** up and down my town" and "See how long it takes to make your panties mine." The faces of the children were clearly visible in the video.
"I s**t on my community," Emory told the Chronicle. "I have people who have known me since I was 4 in my community that want me dead. I sang at my graduation commencement. You can literally fit the entire town in the gymnasium. I never wanted this to happen. I'm sorry to everybody."

I don't know why they just don't do a public "spanking" and be on with it.

I believe the parents of these children have every right to be offended that their progeny was used to make such a "work" without prior notification. The fact that the "artist" in question failed to divulge his intent to the participants parents speaks very poorly on his character.
Free speech is one thing, but free speech exploiting innocents is quite another entirely.
Smearing fecal matter on the walls of the museum of the mind does not "art" make.

Oh really, which world do you come from friend? Have you not heard the hundreds, possibly thousands of so called "punk/hardcore/heavy/death/metal/goth" whatever the hell you call it, by so called professional musicians? The lyrics can be far more sinister and disturbing than the line I posted. These songs and videos can be found on YouTube and many other places, not to mention purchasable at your local music store. And you're telling me someone is going to charge these people with "unfavorable content" or some crap?
No, but it could be considered 'posting harmful information on the internet' or some garbage charge like that.
