Blind Item #1 - Mr. Hedge

Looks like that convicted pedophile photographer I keep talking about is back selling pictures online. 

Somehow the sites allow this to take place. They claim if it's not nudity, then it's not illegal.   Even though it's clearly exploitative and oriented towards pedophiles.   This creep has been around forever.

Yes most of Mr. Hedge's BI are from the documentary I suspect he produced, An Open Secret so this is most definitely Bob Villard who was featured on it.

The Los Angeles Police Department had been monitoring child manager Bob Villard even before 1987, when he was among nine people indicted by a federal grand jury in New Jersey on charges of transporting child pornography, according to published accounts. He was convicted but, upon appeal, the charges against him fell apart because prosecutors had been unable to produce the sexually explicit images at trial.

Villard was again accused of child pornography in 2001, after searches of his home uncovered thousands of photographs of boys in skimpy bathing suits posed in sexually suggestive positions, police said. He pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor and was sentenced to three years of probation.

Throughout this period, Villard touted his work with aspiring young actors, some of whom would later become major Hollywood stars — among them Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio and Danny Nucci. Villard boasted on a company website that as a manager he had "guided the careers of dozens of successful film and television actors."

In 2005, Villard was back in court and pleaded no contest to the felony charge of committing a lewd act on a child. The victim was a 13-year-old boy who sought him out as an acting coach. Villard is serving an eight-year prison sentence.

Ebay Child Actor Head Shots Removal

Geeljire said...

This is something to be reported to eBay
Carefully documented
And ran with when eBay inevitably does nothing (I WONDER WHY?)

Sara, Making It Work said...

That is shady AF!

Stupid Question: Who is Mr.Hedge?

Geeljire said...

A CDAN contributor.
According to some, he's the demiurge who manifests his will across the stock market.

SupraFresh said...

I found his eBay account from the article. Does anyone know how I should report this?

just sayin' said...

Ebay's on it, hence the blind.

See my link above.

Maude Labowski said...

Thank you Geeljire! I knew that they and Mr. X are nom de plums for contributors, but I have been having a hard time finding info on who they are in relation to Enty...Again, thank you!

SupraFresh said...

Yeah but the account is still open and EBay only took down the Justin Cooper photo because of his social security number was visible. If more people reported the account altogether, Ebay will get more pressure to close the account, which is why I'm asking how to report it properly to Ebay.

Brayson87 said...

I don't know what's creepier, how these guys act in public or how difficult it is to research some of them, like ghosts on the net.

Document all your communications with eBay and if they don't do anything about it, make noise to internet/media people.

Someone will run with something like that in'sha'allah.

Good luck with ebay. They're notoriously mercenary. Unless you can prove that the seller's doing something illegal or in violation of their policies, they won't do anything. They see these as fan memorabilia, period, worth money, so tough luck.

Good job on keeping track of this crap on Ebay, geejire. I don't always agree with u but u would be a great investigator! In sharjah

Sd Auntie said...

In Shallah!!!

Sd Auntie said...

Boycott Ebay...just a suggestion

hothotheat said...

But let them know why.

Gotta be Bob Villard selling pictures of boys posing suggestively in bathing suits

Han Niam said...

@Maude And generally viewed likely to be Very Closely Involved with the documentary “An Open Secret,” a phrase that also describes his likely identity.

VDOVault said...

Seller is thought to be in Toronto Canada (or so the account says) & has been on FeeBay since 2002. Can Villard leave the USA? Or did he send the photos out of the country to be sold?

There are a few up that have young boys in undershirts. Why do kids take head shots in their underwear at all? Who made that a 'thing', having kids pose that way?
