Amos Yee pleads not guilty in US court to child pornography and grooming…

“CHICAGO: Singaporean blogger Amos Yee pleaded not guilty in a Chicago court on Tuesday (Nov 24) to all charges related to his arrest for child pornography, according to court officials.

Yee, who remained on Tuesday in Chicago’s Cook County jail on a US$1 million bond, entered his plea before Judge Carol Howard, nearly three weeks after a grand jury formally indicted him.

In the remote hearing from the Leighton Criminal Courthouse, Yee was represented at his arraignment by a public defender. He will next appear on Dec 18, court officials said.”

Of course…the down side to not taking a plea deal, is that if they’re going to have to put on an entire trial…they’ll usually seek the maximum penalties the law says they are allowed to inflict.

I don’t blame anyone for fighting something they see as unjust…but if the prosecution has what they say they have as evidence…It’s simply over for Amos…This will be a slam dunk, open and closed trial…He will be convicted, no doubt about that…and probably sentenced to at least a few decades in prison…Even if he does manage to get released early, they’ll likely hand him over to Singapore…and we aren’t likely to hear from Amos Yee ever again, once the trial is over.

Take note…

…This is what “going down really hard” looks like, when you lack self restraint and foresight.

Don’t be an Amos Yee.

“Under US law, when a person is indicted, he is given formal notice that it is believed that he committed a crime. The accused is then arraigned, during which he is read the charges in the indictment and is asked to enter a plea.

“The grand jury has indicted you on this case,” Judge Charles Beach told Yee during Wednesday’s remote hearing from the Leighton Criminal Courthouse in Chicago. The judge said that the “defendant demands trial”.

Yee did not speak, except to say “thank you” to the judge.”

    I actually hope he is acquitted, really. It’s unlikely, but who knows? He was getting better. I was somewhat close to him during his change of behavior. He was becoming more humane. As a person who knew him during his healing phase, I can say it’s quite unfair to see his current self through the lens of his past, provocateur self. I really hope it turns out well for him.

        Sure…but not arrested and charged for these things…and not in the U.S.

        Depending on where he ends up, he could be fine if there is a special section for “sex offenders”, separate from the main population…Otherwise, there is a serious threat of being murdered.

        In addition…they’ll almost certainly revoke his asylum status…Best outcome there, is if they allow him to choose his own destination, and said destination agrees to allow him in.

        Will that happen?…
