PostSubject: Manga Criminal Charges Dropped in Canada   Fri Mar 16, 2012 10:37 am

I've just been informed by the "Comic Book Legal Defense Fund" (which I am a member of) that Ryan Matheson (aka Brandon X) has been cleared of all criminal charges in Canada after they found hentai & lolicon manga on his laptop.

Matheson has spent the last 2 years in Canadian prison for owning what the Canadian authorities describe as "child pornography" (which was all animated) after randomly searching through files on his laptop.

He was also ordered not to use computers and Internet outside of his job.

The Canadian courts dropped all charges against Matheson, will not stand trial and will not be placed on the sex offender's list in Canada, or elsewhere.

Today has been a victory for comic book and manga fans everywhere.

I'm very proud to help another Otaku out of trouble.

Here's the full story
