Donny Pauling Jr.: Anti-Porn Crusader Arrested On Charges Of Sex With A Minor

Donny Pauling Jr. spent years crusading against pornography, but now police in California have arrested the man for allegedly having sex with a minor.

Pauling was originally arrested in December and booked on charges of committing a lewd act with a child under the age of 14, oral copulation with a child under 14, and unlawful intercourse.

This week, the Sutter County Deputy District Attorney leveled nine new charges related to a second victim. The new charges include (via KXTV) four counts of having sex with a minor, one count of having sex with a minor while employed as a public official, one count of oral copulation with a minor, one count of first-degree burglary, one count of meeting a minor with sexual intent, and one count of molesting a minor.

Police said that a woman and her 16-year-old daughter reported that Donny Pauling Jr. had been in an intimate relationship with the girl since she was 13-years-old.

Donny Pauling Jr. is a former producer of porn movies who later became a Christian and spoke about the dangers of the porn industry. His speaking engagements took him to several churches, including one just weeks before his initial arrest.

On his website, Pauling speaks about the dangers of pornography though says he is not in favor of prohibition.

Yes, I was a porn producer for 9 years, contracting with Playboy and a group of other well known companies. Yes, I have become a Christian. And yes, I now speak publicly about what goes on behind the scenes here on this blog as well as at numerous Churches and Universities (including Yale University – WOOT!) across this great country of ours. But the reason I speak about what goes on “behind the scenes” of porn is NOT because I have become a Christian. I do so because someone needs to do so. Porn is often portrayed as great fun, happy go lucky, and victimless. The fantasy shown on screen seems fantastic. The realities of porn, however, are not even close. I am a firm believer in freedom of speech and expression, and it is my personal belief that education, not legislation, is what changes hearts. Therefore it is my goal to educate so that those who hear can make a more informed decision.

On the site, Donny Pauling Jr. also speaks about his joy of being a father. His website makes no reference to the charges of sex with minors.
