Oh, that’s comforting. Los Angeles Times reports:
A convicted child molester who spent recent years helping cast Hollywood movies under an alias was arrested Friday on suspicion of violating sex offender registry laws, a move his attorney decried as an injustice born out of nationwide outrage over pedophilia scandals. Los Angeles prosecutors charged Jason James Murphy, 35, with failure to file a name change and failure to file a change of address, felonies that together carry a maximum sentence of three years in state prison The charges against Murphy resulted from a three-week investigation that followed a Times report detailing his 1996 conviction in Washington state for kidnapping and molesting an 8-year-old and his recent work as a casting associate on films featuring children, including the summer sci-fi hit “Super 8” and the upcoming comedy “The Three Stooges.” Murphy served five years in prison for crimes against a boy whom he had met while working as a camp counselor. After being charged with molesting the child, Murphy abducted him from school and took him to New York, where he was later arrested. After his incarceration, he moved to Los Angeles and registered as a sex offender. There were no allegations of misconduct with children in his casting work, but those who worked with him were stunned when they learned of his criminal history. “To think that someone like this was among us is unthinkable,” said “Super 8” director J.J. Abrams.
