I don’t know if you have been following the Paul Reubens child pornography possession case, but it’s tawdry and grim all the way around:

    A judge in Los Angeles Friday declined to dismiss the lone misdemeanor charge against actor Paul Reubens, arrested last November 15, on suspicion of possession of child pornography.

    A trial date could now be set as soon as February 28, the next day both the prosecution and defense are due back in court. But it appeared unlikely the gavel would come down on a Reubens trial anytime soon, with the defense intimating it was considering an appeal.

    Reubens, 50, has pleaded innocent to the charge facing him. He remains free on $20,000 bail.

    ….The defense has sought to blow holes in the case against the Blow star, painting Reubens as a collector of “kitsch memorabilia” who was being nailed for having “vintage” books, magazines and film, not to mention the much-bootlegged Rob Lowe sex tape, in his library.

    The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office begged to differ–a lot. It cited the magazines Hot ‘n’ Hung, Teen Nudes, 101 Boys and Young and Ready, all said to feature pictures of nude children, as evidence Reubens’ collection was more criminal than vintage.

    Reubens’ home became the target of police after a teenage boy lodged a since-discounted complaint against the actor. The investigation was part of a general sweep, which also netted friend and fellow actor Jeffrey Jones, 55, who was rung up on an even more serious charge.

    Jones, the unprincipled principal in Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, faces a felony charge of hiring an underage boy to pose for sexually explicit photos. He, too, stands accused of misdemeanor kid-porn possession. He has pleaded innocent to those charges. [E! online]

So Pee-wee has a shitload of this really terrible stuff, but the cops only found it as part of a questionable “general sweep.”

The prosecution and Reubens camps disagree on most everything, but they agree on the size of Pee-wee’s porno collection:

    Kraft has said police found a “massive” pornography collection consisting of photographs, magazines and hundreds of home videos and movies.

    Reubens’ representatives have said the actor owned a “vast and valuable” collection of erotica, including some items a century old. He never knowingly possessed child pornography and bought some of the items in his collection in large lots that he had not opened, according to his spokeswoman, Kelly Bush. [AP]

That’s a name you wouldn’t make up under the circumstances.
