What makes for a bigger crime?

Ok, like 98 percent of the population we completely agree with the idea that the sexual violation of a minor is a very serious offence that warrants the full weight of the law. That said, what happens when instead of the boy or girl in question being violated, a purported image of them is violated?

Confused- this one is a real doozy…

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for using a computer to make a clothed child appear naked in photos.

The Kansas City Star reported that 66-year-old Elvon Arndt agreed to the sentence in his plea bargain. Arndt pleaded guilty this past week in federal court in Kansas City to attempted production of child pornography.

He acknowledged that he took photographs of the clothed girl, which he then manipulated with computer software.

So let us get this straight, nothing happened to the girl, not once did she appear naked in front of our man Elvon and all Elvon did was have a fantasy of a young child. Fantasy. Right or wrong, the question begs can one be imprisoned for their fantasies, and the furthest he went on acting on his fantasies was photo shopping an image. Never mind the countless photos and sexual predators roaming the universe, does Elvon’s crime really come close to crossing the law or is it just the fact that a reprehensible fantasy as this one as this one is enough to horrify and offend society to the point of overlooking the fact that physically or mentally the child was not once hurt.

Of course what’s even more ludicrous is if Elvon actually physically hurt the girl he would have received considerably less time, but because he thought it and physically drew an image of his fantasy Elvon is going to be spending a very long time behind bars.
