    Did JS not just plead guilty? No compassion here, for him. I agree you can't pick your family.

    He who has no sin, may cast the first stone. Have you no compassion? Have you no shame? Have you nothing in your closet? In most of Europe and South America this is referred to as "hanging out your dirty laundry". Is your laundry clean?
    It seems to me that none of you are discussing the issues of good horsemanship; rather, you have created a soap opera and brought in two other people into this soap opera that you alone have created...that being Jonathan's sister and brother. I see the repeated use of the word "gross" with regards to this issue. I think your fascination with this story is gross. What exactly is the inference if one person is related to another? Have your siblings done nothing wrong? Do you believe that the sins of the father are the sins of the son? And, finally, does something on your computer equate to acting upon it? If that were true, I guess a heck of a lot of marriages would have ended by now...please reflect.
    Seems to me that mentioning the other family members was merely to clarify if they were thinking of the right person.

    And yeah - this is pertinent to horse showing. I sure as heck wouldn't want to bring MY children to a show where a sex offender was officiating. And I'd certainly want to be informed.

    So maybe in your world exposing child sex offenders is "airing dirty laundry".

    In my world, it's about protecting children.

    As for your question: And, finally, does something on your computer equate to acting upon it?

    No - his having kiddie porn on his PC doesn't necessarily mean he's actually raped children. But having it on his PC IS a crime that he pled guilty to. And someone with an interest in kiddie porn doesn't need to be around kids - and children make up a significant population of the horse show world.

    OH - and BTW - no, I have no compassion for anyone into kiddie porn. Zero.

    Calling child porn merely a sin, is like saying the Titanic took on a little bit of water. This is more like, don't stand too close to JS or you may get struck by lightening.

    JS being allowed to judge and work in this industry after being found guilty of having child porn... well uhhh, I find that to be a HUGE issue. And the word "sin" hardly does THAT any justice.

    .. he's at Pine Ridge. He may have taught there but I don't think he's there now & he's not listed on their website.

    The last post on this thread was two weeks ago, and now you've brought it right back to the top. And, therefore, back under the microscope.

    Apparently he has a lot of support of clients and people in the industry and given the small amount of material found, it's not surprising that he got off easily without any REAL punishment. I suspect with his ties to George Morris, he'll be back judging competitions or doing high profile competitions fairly quickly after his "rehab" when his PR people spin it as a "redemption" or some other nonsense. I find it kinda ironic though that several articles referencing him before this happened contain phrases such as " trainer Jonathan Soresi was checking out the Young Jumper classes along with others keeping an eye on the up and comers" and he contributed to a biographical book called "A Very Young Rider" along with George Morris intended for children riders.

    He did not write the book, but was merely in it as the trainer of the rider. It was written by the photographer Jill Krementz. She wrote a series of very young books including Circus Flyer, Rider, and Dancer.

    I noticed that a couple farms that had booked him for judging have now cancelled (or he did).

    I don't know ANYONE; besides his clients; who supports him. As far as getting off easy; he plea bargained & ended up with 10 YEARS PROBATION.
    I have talked to a few lawyers who said; 10 years is a really long probation.
    USEF knows all about this matter, but I think the cannot revoke his judge's card until he is sentenced, just a legal thing, he may have plead guilty, but it is not official until he stands before the judge & the judge accepts the plea.

    Yeah, did he end up judging?

    According to some of the articles, he's being held in some jail known as "The Justice Center". I'm guessing that's where the Justice League hangs out these days.

    Is he judging or there as a spectator? As far as I can tell from the information I have gathered, the USEF is refusing to address the issue.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!

    Ok this is just ridiculous , This slime PLEADED GUILTY !!!!to possessing and obviously enjoying child pornography!!!! DO YOU PEOPLE NOT GET IT, do you think the children he was watching were willing participants??? a horrifying crime was committed against theses children. Babies as young as 6 months old are bought and sold over the internet for purposes of creating this child porn, little boys and girls 6 7 8 9 years old are kidnapped held prisoner and forced into making these videos, they can exist in the underground for years, well into their teens being traded back and forth and forced into making these videos for the slimes that watch them. Soresi wasn't committing a victimless crime he was supporting it's commission. 10 years probation seemed severe to one of you .. what would you think of a kid having to endure 10 years of torture so as to give pleasure to a piece of crap like Soresi.. There isn't a sole on Gods Green Earth who can justify supporting this scum in any way shape or form. I don't care what justification a horse show manager gives for hiring him or a client gives for continuing to support him there is NO justification.
