    Smart move on his part not . He just had some of his charges removed .

  • Dope Boy

    And when you catch him, this time keep him in jail ! Why is this perv. anymore deserving of special treatment then all the other pervs. out there !?

    Stop mocking justice because of his former position. And perhaps investigate how many he railroaded because they would not let him exploit their children. I’m sure you’ll find one or more rotting away in prison on a false conviction.

      It’s common for convicted criminals to be out on bail while thery wait for the appeals process. Look at the story last week about the convicted baby killer. Maybe it only has to do with crimes against children.

        Evidently, they don’t care about kids anymore. Makes me sick!

      Are you assuming he received special treatment due to his former position, or can you cite similar cases that show he was treated differently? As to…”And perhaps investigate how many he railroaded because they would not let him exploit their children.”…that could be the most absurd comment I have ever seen here. I’m trying to imagine how that scenario would play out.

    I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that he was last seen near Hallowell, Maine, and not Hollowell in Northamptonshire, England. If the latter, he’s quite far out of bounds.

  • Anonymous

    Well clearly those ankle bracelets are an effective deterrent *rolling eyes*…and anyone else, who wasn’t an attorney, would have been in jail pending their appeal…..funny how it works differently for some of us. What a joke our ‘justice system’ is and a bad joke at that.

  • Anonymous

    Too bad it took four days after his disappearance to get this out to the public. If his plan was to leave the state, he’s long gone by now. Especially if he’s been spending his time preparing for this, which wouldn’t be surprising. A former drug prosecutor, sentenced to 16 years in jail on child porn charges (inmates call ’em skinners, and despise them,) is not going to have a fun time in prison. I imagine he’s spent quite a bit of time remembering some of the guys he sent into the very place he was headed.

    Not a good development. Here’s hoping they catch him, and add a few more years for fleeing.

          Just a few months ago the DOC announced that they were going to severely limit the isolation of inmates, PC is a form of isolation.

          • Ben Hutchins

            “Severely limit” isn’t the same thing as “eliminate”. If it’s severely limited, one imagines they’d still be willing to do it in extreme-risk cases. The case of a former drugs prosecutor who’s locked up for sex crimes v. minors would probably qualify. Whether it ought to is another matter entirely, but…

          • Jst4Today

            The federal system keeps all the sex offenders, high-level medical care, gang members who have dropped out, and more recently have started adding in inmates with mental health diagnoses together in one of two prisons. So they are basically out of gen pop, but “with their own kind” in a less-restrictive setting. Even these guys have their limit, though. I’m betting if he’s found (alive) he will be in PC for the duration. And let’s hope it’s a long duration at that.

            Child pornography is NOT a victimless crime….but the feds have picked it up and have gone overboard with punishment. The federal guidelines are based on numbers of images, with videos counting for so many pictures. The thing is that this man got more time than if he had actually physically molested a child for years. I don’t know what the answer to all this is but it is disheartening to read comments suggesting that keeping people in prison forever is a good thing. He has ruined his life, career and family. I doubt that he will be found in OK shape or even alive. PS If you think this guy got a break because he was an attorney think about the 16 years he got. He got more time BECAUSE he was an attorney and bail pending appeal is not unusual.

          • Jst4Today

            I disagree. The feds have not gone overboard with punishment in this case; it is other cases which should also be punished to this extent and more. Whether someone actually physically molests the child or purchases child porn in which the child is forcibly molested and/or raped for the viewing pleasure of the buyer of the porn they should receive as many years as the laws allow. Keeping him in prison and off the streets for life *is* a good thing. These people cannot be reformed. That has been proven time and time again.
            I do feel sympathy for his family, but not for him. I do not care that he ruined his life and career. He has ruined many many lives in his path. I don’t think he got a break sentence-wise because he’s an attorney, but I absolutely believe he got a head-start out the door in one way or another.

          • Anonymous

            I understand that you want to throw everyone in jail forever but actually some people can be reformed and this issue has become just a bit nuts. I say lets go after the airlines that knowingly make billions transporting pedophiles to Thailand. but…enough of that rant…

            This is from the sentencing judge in his assessment of the federal sentencing guidelines in Cameron’s case:

            “Even when other sexual offenses against minors are concerned, a total offense level of 39 is punitive. The actual criminal sexual abuse of a minor under the age of sixteen starts with a base offense level of 18 and a guideline range of 27 to 33 months. U.S.S.G. § 2A3.2(a). Thus, under the guidelines, Mr. Cameron is subject to nearly a ten-fold greater punishment for possessing images of someone else sexually abusing a minor than he would receive if he had committed the actual abuse himself. The guidelines assign the horrific crime of selling or buying a child for use in the production of pornography with a base offense level of 38, a lower level of punishment than Mr. Cameron is currently facing. U.S.S.G. § 2G2.3(a)”…..

            So this law is nuts… And as far as getting a break because he was an attorney…I think not …as the judge stated: “Mr. Cameron‘s position as a high law enforcement official is an aggravating factor. As the top drug prosecutor for the state of Maine, Mr. Cameron‘s criminality casts an unwarranted shadow on the integrity of other public officials and encourages public cynicism.”

          • Anonymous

            That is fine as long as the judge will be held accountable when he does it again. He should have to spend the time in jail with the sicko.

            Are you nuts? The judge should go to jail too? These are the guidelines the crazy politicians passed to get your vote. The judge is doing the best he can with an ill-thought out patchwork of legislative meddling in the sentencing arena.. Every time you hear a federal politician wonk-on about getting “tough on crime” you should vote for someone else with great haste.

            Pedophiles can not be reformed nor can the ones that view these acts they find on the web. I don’t agree with your arguments. I think this is a travesty that he was released awaiting the appeal ruling – I think that it was only because he was a prosecutor and for only that reason. Any other person convicted of this type of crime wouldn’t be allowed out awaiting their appeal ruling.
            Also – why did it take the police so long to check on him?!

          • Jst4Today

            I don’t want to throw everyone in jail forever. I do want to throw pedophiles, the people who make child porn, and their customers in jail forever. That would still leave a whole bunch of people who can be released after serving their time. Again, I would agree that *some* people can be reformed. Pedophiles cannot and should be kept away from society for the rest of their lives.
            It doesn’t bother me in the least that on the face of things Cameron may be getting a “raw deal” in the sentencing guidelines in your opinion. Give him every last day he is entitled to under the law, as far as I’m concerned, and beef up sentences for other perverts like him if you feel the law is unjust for his brand of sexual deviance. I never said he got a break due to his attorney status. I believe strongly however that he had some help from someone in the know who leaked some info to him thus enabling his escape.

          • jerrymyx

            I so agree with your comment!! 100%, and yes I too, think he had help!!!!

          • Anonymous

            I totally agree with your statement. I think that more attention should be paid to updating sentencing guidelines for those who actually molest a child. While possessing child pornography is certainly a despicable crime that needs to be punished, I would rather see those who actually molest children get far more time. I have seen multiple cases where molesters get between 2-3 years and are back out to re-offend in no time. They should be getting 16 years (or more) for ruining an innocent child’s life.

            As a side note: I can imagine Judge Woodcock is going to shove this in the face of the appellate court which allowed Cameron to be free on bail.

            As for Cameron I am sure he is long gone and transitioning into a new life far far away from here. 10 to 1 odds that he is somewhere warm. At least in warm climates you don’t have to worry about freezing to death when you don’t have shelter, which would be my first concern if I were on the run.

          • Anonymous

            Long gone, and probably as the result of a self-imposed death sentence.

          • Jst4Today

            The children who are in these porn videos are molested. Should not the customers who pay for the videos to watch them being molested get an equal amount of time? Or is it because they are passively watching a young child molested instead of being physically involved, they should get less time?

          • Dope Boy

            Like the the drug user, no ‘demand, no supply’ . It’s people like him who keep the business of child exploitation alive and well. The user, the viewer is just as responsible for it all.

            Most of these children are from impoverished nations sold by their parents to pay off a debt or for survival.

            In the case of this creep, he of all people, in the position he held is terribly scary. Not just because he should have known better. And if we want to get real cynical we could probably say he was allowed to escape because of the network he was a member of.

            Now, let’s really get you going, and let us hope he has run away to commit suicide. How’s that for some new sentencing guidelines. Your choice, prison or the opportunity to go out like a coward.

            Cause if it was Joe Schumck from anywhere Maine he’s not wearing an ankle bracelet after being sentence to 16 years. The appeal would have been behind bars. Just remember this, there are two America’s (and sometimes three) one for them and one for the rest of us.

            They are severely limiting “in room” time. (they can beat the crap out of someone, but can’t spend time in their room). PC is just like general population, but separate from them. They have other inmates in a block like them, that need it as well. They still get all the “perks” and are certainly not locked in their rooms. Them ones are just kept away from the general population.

  • StillRelaxin

    Suppose like in the movies he’s run off to find proof of his innocence? Or like in real life, he’s just admitted to his guilt. I’m going with choice # two.

    You’re free on bail awaiting the outcome of an appeal process – then you decide to cut off your monitoring bracelet. Sounds like a great idea!! :/

    • PaulNotBunyan

      Read it again. The court upheld 7 of the 13 convictions and the prosecutor made the motion to revoke bail and arrest him. From there his lawyers could try to take it all the way to the supreme court but he would be behind bars during that.

        Maybe he should have been required to be in the courtroom when the decision was announced…

        • PaulNotBunyan

          If the federal appeals courts can do anything similar to sealed grand jury indictments I think that would have been the way to go. I don’t know if an appeals court can just issue a “go fetch him” order but I’ve seen people brought into state courts that way – sometimes only because they ignored a subpoena in a civil case.

      How much help does a person need to cut a nylon-webbing strap? It’s not like they’re some kind of exotic titanium-vanadium alloy weave or something. This is Maine, they probably got the cheapest ones they could find in the Suspected Felons edition of the Sharper Image catalog.

        Ok, let me spell it out: maybe he isn’t just missing or on the run. There are other scenarios that could have happened to him.

          Oh, you figure somebody might’ve 86ed him? Well, it’s a theory, I suppose. One wonders why, given that he seems to have been about to… well… not get away with it on appeal, but weirder things have happened.

            Could have 86ed himself–wouldn’t be the first time it happened

            If so, the polite thing would’ve been to leave the tracker on so the body wouldn’t be as hard to find.

        Actually, these bracelets were on clearance at Marden’s…same place we got the Gov. Speaks to the quality right there, doesn’t it?

      • Maybe with sex offenders, instead of the ankle we could put them somewhere else…might deter trying to cut it off.

  • Anonymous

    If not for his former position, I doubt he would have been allowed to be out on bail even pending appeal. Now he has shown how little he respects the system he used to be part of. It is ridiculous that only now, when he has a good head start, that his status as missing is revealed to the public. What a sad and pathetic joke the legal system is.

            I wonder if that’s a recent change or just not very diligently enforced at some of the crossings out of Maine. Last couple times I’ve been to my dentist in Perth, the Canadians have been perfectly satisfied with my driver’s license; it’s the US Customs people on the way back who want to see a passport or border card, and maybe have a look in the trunk.

    US Attorney says that “he poses no risk to anyone’s safety or the safety of communities. We are uncertain of his intentions or state of mind”

    Someone explain to me how, they are certain that he poses no risk……..but are uncertain of his state of mind? Now, let me get this straight; he was convicted of having child pornography, 6 of which were thrown out. Now, there’s a convicted sex offender on the loose, and he poses not one little tiny threat….to anyone, or a community? All the while, here’s a man that the federal marshal’s are looking for, but they don’t know his state of mind? Sounds like dangerous to me, desperate people do desperate things, that’s a fact. It’s not normal for a former prosecutor, convicted of a sex offense, to cut the ankle belt and run off, full knowing the consequences of his actions. He’s obviously going to do what’s necessary NOT to go to prison, and the reason why he doesn’t want to go is obvious. He’s put alot of people in the place, where he belongs.

    • PaulNotBunyan

      Right. I mentioned my disagreement with that statement in another comment. If he’s alive, I definitely would consider him a risk. As you said, he’s desperate about going to prison. If he’s out for revenge It gets much worse than that.

    Let’s recap. He gets convicted and sentenced. He get get no bail based on the trial judge who is over-ruled by an appellate judge who is unfamiliar with the case but likely knew the perv/perp/lawyer. He then, after having his ties to the community removed or likely lost to bail/divorce. So, connections have allowed this guy to go costing us taxpayers even more money to find him or his body. Hope it doesn’t take long. And the moral of this story is . …. don’t trust lawyers who download porn.

    Why did he still have a computer?

  • Xerxies

    This guy downloaded and uploaded illegal pornographic photographs of children on the internet. He was never accused of, or suspected of, having sexually or otherwise abused a child or children himself. So, contrary to what I’ve seen stated here in the comment section, he is not a “skinner” yet. In my opinion he is a pervert, he’s sick, he’s demented, if not a child molester, he’s in training to become one, but he is not a child molester yet, insofar as anyone has been able to determine thus far. Not that the distinction really has any merit, but for the sake of argument.

    Talk about a high price… The man is looking to spend a large portion of the remaining balance of his life in a federal prison for looking at and sharing pictures. The remaining balance of said life will be spent, most likely in abject misery and self-loathing, unemployable, required to register as a sex offender, a social pariah. When we have people convicted ROUTINELY for actually physically molesting multiple children who are sentenced to spend a year or two, maybe even as much as, but no more than, five years in prison.

    Granted, him seeking, possessing and trafficking in child porn is sick, twisted…..beyond my ability to comprehend, but I ask you all; is this the sort of justice we are willing to accept? What about equity in sentencing, what about the fairness principle?

    There is another side to this coin, another argument to be made, in support of the sentence that has been levied in this case, but I’ll let another make that argument in its entirety. But I will say this; there is, in my opinion, little distinction between supporting or advocating the sexual abuse of children by trafficking in child pornography, and the actual physical act of doing so.

    I support the sentence in this case. My argument is intended make people think, make them think about all the people we let off the hook with comparatively “easy” sentences for crimes that I feel are every bit as bad as the ones Cameron committed. Why?

            My thoughts on fair sentencing in a case like this, or any other that involves the sexual exploitation and/or abuse of a child are a wee bit harsher than yours I think.

            A rope comes to mind…

            But, that’s a debate for another time. I just wonder sometimes, who thought up the sentencing rules… They don’t appear to make much sense.

    Sounds to me like he planned on jumping. Laptop that is missing. Perhaps he was in touch with some underground connections that helped him get out of the country.

    Some time, some where, his body will be discovered.

    So this form of incareation/punishment OBVIOUSLY isn’t working. How about a shock collar around the neck that if they attempt to tamper with it, they get shocked?

    He’s out with OJ, Drew Peterson, Phil Spector trying to clear his name. Oh wait. They’re all in prison except Mr. Cameron. The boys in the Warren Country Club are going to just LOVE you; especially the ones you convicted…

    its bad enough there are sickos out there walking among us that prey on children–but whats even worst is there are law officials —and men / women of the cloth sworn to protect the innocent and entrusted to rid our streets of such scum which are in fact scum themselves –wolves in sheep’s clothing–May they rot in Hell !

    Keep something in mind in these cases. These people do not act alone. They share their sicknesses with others of like mind.

    Ordinarily I’d say this was a no-brainer but given that it took them until almost 10 1/2 hours after his monitor went off the first time to go to his residence I’d have to say “CHECK THE DAMN CAMP IN ROME!” Unbelievable! His monitor went off at 12:46am putting him in violation. No one does anything…then the device attempts to connect to the ankle bracelet at 1:30am and again it failed. No one does anything. They try two phone numbers between 7am and 8am and fail to make contact. So, they wait until 10:30am to go look for him! The guy was out on bail. They had the right to go bang on his door at 12:46am when they first got the alarm. Why did they wait until 10:30am?

    I suspect they’ll find him in the woods after the spring thaw
