A little over three years ago, I posted about his arrest for child pornography and possession of crystal meth. He was released, apparently after one day, on a $50,000 personal bond. Price faced up to 200 years for these crimes.
Price entered into a “no contest” plea deal with the Oakland County Prosecutor this past September and prosecutors dropped eight of the child pornography possession charges and computer crimes, as well as one drug possession charge, leaving one child porn offense and a related computer charge in place. The maximum penalty for the computer crime is 15 years in prison, and 10 years in prison for the pornography offense, along with hefty fines.
This week, Oakland County Judge Kwame Rowe, a relative newcomer to the bench and previously a prosector with the Oakland County office (including the Human Trafficking Division), sentenced Price to 180 days in jail, with credit for one day served, and three years probation. There is no mention of any fine.
None of the press coverage I found today included the now 57-year-old Price’s photo, but here it is in an earlier publication:
I was unable to determine who his masterful criminal defense attorney was.
We all know that these criminals never age out. They keep this shit up forever and Price has now been facilitated in this by his defense attorney and Judge Rowe. Surely Judge Rowe realizes that child porn is hardly a victimless crime. People like Price ensure the market for the production of child porn. Every viewing is a re-victimization of the child who is on film.
So sick of the light sentences for child predators like Steven Price. I hope the feds get you next time, freak. Judge Rowe, you might want to read up on how the OCP nolle prossed pedophile Christopher Brian Busch back in 1977. At least you people are consistent. Predators over children in Oakland County.
