Lawyer With Anti-Gay Alliance Defending Freedom Arrested On Child-Porn Charges

A lawyer working with an anti-gay legal fund has been arrested on federal child-pornography charges.

Manchester, New Hampshire lawyer Lisa Biron is associated with the Alliance Defending Freedom, a group of reactionary Christian attorneys lawyers pressing litigation to curb reproductive rights and block the freedom to marry, reports the Concord Monitor.

Biron was arrested by the FBI on Friday for taking a teenage girl to Canada and coercing her to engage in sex on camera. She faces charges of transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, possession of child pornography and five counts of sexual exploitation of children.

ADF was founded in 1994 by, among others, Focus on the Family’s James Dobson and American Family Association’s Donald Wildmon—so it should be no surprise that fighting gay rights is one of the bedrocks of its mission: The organization opposes same-sex marriage, civil unions, and gay adoptions; represented a litigant in Perry vs. Schwarzenegger; and established the Day of Truth, a counterpoint to the LGBT-inclusive Day of Silence.

Biron was originally charged with seven counts of possessing child pornography on October 9. It appears she was picked up by the FBI on Friday because she broke the conditions of her bail—including by possessing rounds of ammo in her home.

Seriously?

According to the Monitor, prosecutors argued Biron needed to be held without bond, because:

* Two witnesses have testified to seeing Biron in possession of ecstasy, marijuana and cocaine.

* Biron sent a threatening text message to the person who turned her in to the police, advising him he would have to watch his back “FOR EVER.”

* Biron sent a text to a friend saying she might flee to Cuba because she had “nothing left.”

* Biron has asked people to lie to law enforcement about her case.

* Other juveniles have been subjected to Biron’s sexual activity and drug use.

Biron is scheduled to stand trial in January, when she faces up to a decade in prison if found guilty on the transportation charge, and 15 years to life on each of the exploitation of children charges.

We always said those people shouldn’t be allowed near children.

(Yes, we know judging an entire group by the actions of one wingnut is unfair. But since the anti-gay right jumped on the Family Research Council shooting as proof we’re all crazy assassins, it’s fair game.)

      What is it with these right wing nutcases and the will too dominate children, it is absolutely sick the absolute correlation between right wing minds and child pornography.

      I’ll never understand it, the fact people think about and act these things with kids is just sickening, literally making me feel sick, horrible.

      @Dakotahgeo: If you mean by popular you really mean dead. Then you are right, she will have to housed in protected custody. Which means it will cost us taxpayers more money by keeping her safe in prison. Contrary to popular belief, prison is not a hot bed of gay sex. And pedophiles are the lowest of the low. When I was 15 and living on the streets in San Francisco. I was solicited by more MARRIED STRAIGHT doctors and lawyers and judges than I can count. Throw on a dress and you can get paid twice the going rate. There are some really sick F**KS out there. And most are rich twisted perverts.

      It just goes to show ya…

      The person much too focused on the lives of others, usually has something within themselves they simply can’t bear to see.

      Sad. Sad.

      I hope they figure out how to help those young kids, who clearly feel they don’t have many options.

      So nobody is mentioning hetero pedophile? I’m always very suspicious of those loud-mouthed hetero religious nutjobs most of whom have a lot to hide. I can’t wait to hear Tony Perkins comment on this one.

      Come on Queerty/Dan Avery — what the fuck is that tag line “Pot, Kettle, Black” supposed to mean? So, you are saying that being gay is equivalent to child porn? Use your brains!

      @The Real Mike in Asheville: All that saying means is that someone is guilty of what they accuse another of doing. It does not speak to the truth of the accusations. I’m gonna have to side with Dan on this one.

      Shakespeare already spoke to this issue perfectly: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” Goodbye, Lisa. Don’t let the cell door hit your ass on the way out – I mean, on the way in.
