I guess the good news about Jerry Sandusky being exposed for his horrific crimes is that it heightens the attention everywhere on such things. Think about how many stories you have seen over the past week about people coming forward that had never done so before or accusations that had been hidden are now public and just more research and digging. The Los Angeles Times is reporting that contrary to California law, Jason James Murphy who uses the professional name Jason James has been working alone with children and casting them in movies like Super 8 and Bad News Bears.

Back in 1996, Murphy spent five years in prison for kidnapping and molesting an 8 year old boy in Seattle. He was featured on America's Most Wanted when he took the boy and fled to New York City. When he got out of jail he moved to California and was required to register as a sex offender but he registered under his real name and uses a different one for work.
Police are currently investigating if he broke sex offender registration laws. They might want to talk to all the kids he has worked with over the years too.
