In a comment to last Friday’s TKPOTD, a certain cockroach suggested that Bill Schmalfeldt might want to review the statute of limitations in Maryland before returning to the state, It turns out that’s good advice. Consider this information in this post On the Use of Underage Images from five years ago today and the update that follows.
* * * * *
Last year, Bill Schmalfeldt photoshopped my face into a couple of pornographic homoerotic images which he published on the Internet. Those images and their publication formed part of the basis for the extension of the peace order against him that was issued last December.
One of the images of my face was lifted from a college year book picture. While the yearbook was published for my sophomore year, the picture may be a file photo that was actually been taken in autumn of 1965 during my freshman year. I turned 18 on 31 December, 1965.
Thus, it is possible that one of the pornographic images Schmalfeldt published contains a juvenile image of me.

It turns out that the picture of me that Schmalfeldt used was taken when I was still only 17.
Jeffrey Epstein was unavailable for comment, and he didn’t kill himself either.
There is no question that TDPS has posted pictures that meet the definition of pornography under the Miller v. California (413 U.S. 15) standard.
He posted a picture of two men engaging in anal sex with my face photoshopped onto the body of the the one being penetrated. The picture was originally posted at http://radiowms.com/2013/07/19/the-fat-man-episode-004-murdery-me. The page disappeared when the copyright holder of the video from which my face had been lifted asked that the picture be removed.
Schmalfeldt posted another picture into which my face had been photoshopped. It showed my face surrounded by naked men with erect penises. Again, the link is dead—this time because the web host took the site down for violation of its policy against porn. The original URL was http://www.patriot-ombudsman.com/oh-cutie-pie-eh-nsfw-you-are-warned. This is the picture which may use a photo of me taken while I was underage.
Even if I could, I wouldn’t post either of those pictures here, but I can’t. Judge Stansfield placed them under seal during the peace order extension hearing last year. However, the pictures are part of the record of the hearing as is Schmalfeldt’s admission of having made and posted them. That record can be used as evidence in any further proceeding.
The Cabin Boy™ is correct in saying that I want no part of anything that is about to happen about, to, or because of him. If he thinks things through with the least bit of clarity, he should realize that he doesn’t want me involved either.
Next Tuesday, the next set of hearings in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit will be held to deal with motions to compel discovery from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin and motions for summary judgment. Writing about TDPK’s present situation might provide him with insight into how to better argue his case, so for the next few days, I’ll be recycling some oldies from the TKPOD Greatest Hits section.
The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is no stranger to filing—and losing—RICO lawsuits. While he was still in prison, he ran a business selling porn to other jailbirds. When he lost his original connection for the porn, he turned to a new source, but was unsatisfied with what was provided. On page 213 of Mark Singer’s Citizen K we find:
In January 1987, in federal court in Madison, Wisconsin, Kimberlin sued Crest Paragon Productions, alleging false advertising, breach of contract, mail fraud, conspiracy, and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). … He asked for compensatory and punitive damages totaling $150,000. After “a [redacted] Reagan appointee” dismissed the suit on procedural grounds, Brett appealed to the Seventh Circuit but was told he’d have to pay an additional filing fee. “I decided at that point I’d spent enough on this,” he said.
One wonders when he will come to the same realization in his current Rico Madness.
In his biography of Brett Kimberlin, Mark Singer discusses the pornography business that Kimberlin ran while he was in prison selling porn to other inmates. On p. 203 of Citizen K, he describes how the business ended after he lost his original connection and tried a new source.
In January 1987, in a federal court in Madison, Wisconsin, Kimberlin sued Crest Paragon Productions, alleging false advertising, breach of contract, mail fraud, conspiracy, and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). According to the complaint, instead of the thirty magazines and sixteen books Kimberlin expected when he responded to a back-of-the-book advertisement placed by Crest Paragon, he was sent “fifteen pamphlets and three paperback books of low quality.”
Though Kimberlin felt conflicted because “I could have made a fortune on that stuff inside prison if it wasn’t contraband,” mainly he felt compelled to sue. He asked for compensatory and punitive damages totaling $150,000.
The Gentle Reader will probably not be surprised to learn that the case was thrown out of court.
Yesterday, I noted a similarity between the Prenda Law case and the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. case—that both Penda’s lawyers and The Dread Pirate Kimberlin had taken the Fifth during civil lawsuits. There’s another parallel between Prenda and TDPK.
Prenda is a copyright troll going after individuals who have downloaded pornographic videos for which it claims to control the copyrights.
Brett Kimberlin dealt pornography to other inmates while he was in prison and was also involved in a porn related lawsuit. There’s a section (pp., 202, 203) in Mark Singer’s book Citizen K that describes TDPK’s attempted suing of his source for $150,000 in damages because the porn wasn’t sufficiently exciting.
