    Big Grin Paedophile freed for Dracula book

    An American historian jailed in Romania for paedophile offences has been released more than two years early because he wrote a book about Dracula.

    According to the law, Kurt Treptow was entitled to early release because his writing counted as work in prison.

    He published a book about Vlad III Dracul, the Romanian prince who inspired the Dracula legend.

    Mr Treptow had served nearly five years of his seven-year sentence for "sexual relations with minors".

    His lawyer, Liviu Bran, denied that he wrote the book to get out of prison, saying that a board of historians had reviewed it and concluded it was an "original scientific piece of work".

    Political connections

    In 2002 Mr Treptow was convicted of having sex with two underage girls and possession of child pornography. A Romanian woman accomplice, Tatiana Popovici, is still in jail.

    At the time of his arrest in 2002, Mr Treptow was director of the Centre for Romanian Studies in Iasi.

    It was housed in a building belonging to the Romanian Foreign Intelligence Service (SIE).

    Mr Treptow had been a Fulbright scholar in Romania before 1989, during the communist regime.

    He wrote a book on the Romanian dictator, Ion Antonescu, who had been an ally of the Nazis during World War II.

    After 1990 he was close to the left-wing government of former President Ion Iliescu and especially to Ioan Talpes, a former head of the SIE and chief presidential adviser.

    Yeah I know he's an evil criminal (and lib arts guy), I still find the story somewhat amusing.

    Yes, getting away with 5 years in prison instead of 7 is totally getting away with a crime.

    Besides its a little different if he was having sex with 15-year olds than 7 year olds. He is paedophile and EVIL!

    Its so easy to label people paedophiles these days, when in fact a little while back getting married to teenage girls used to be the norm. Not talking about Muhammad and his what 7- or so year old wife....

    It doesnt. Thats why I have trouble processing this "news"

    There they are happily releasing his name and picture to hundreds of millions of people without even telling whether this man was a child rapist or completely something else.

    Well they wrote what he was jailed for, which is perfectly ok IMO. It's not a long article about his crimes, but about the strange circumstances of his early release. And aside from the little detail that he was freed from Romanian prison for writing a Dracula book I don't care enough about the guy to debate his fate back and forth.....

    You dont have to write books under your real name.

    I'm sure his book isnt marketed as "the paedophile writers" latest

    Anyway I dont feel like defending this guy any further as he might be a total ****up. Just wanted to express my disturbance about how this is being casted once again. What good does it bring to anyone to crusify people like this?

    Whenever BBC World does stories about individual people I feel a bit uneasy. Mostly because I dont give a crap about news about individuals like Jade Goody, Victoria Beckham, Foxy Brown or some other celeb the bbc thinks the who world is interested in. National celebrities or politics should not be featured in an international news site. Its amateurish.

    14 and 9, according to a random news site.
    I'm building a wagon! On some other part of the internets, obviously (but not that other site).

    The age of consent is pretty high, unless they are gypsies. The authorities have somewhat given up trying to get them to follow the same laws as the rest of us.

    Isn't 14 legal in Canada? I seem to remember some incident with an american guy getting arrested at the border after telling a customs official he was going to have sex with young girls who were underage by US law but not by Canadian law.

    Yeah, well, I ain't Canadian. And nine's definitely too young. Fourteen is in that grey area between " really sleazy" and "utter pervert."

    Kinda like the polygamist Mormons

    14 ? Yeah, thats too young. But man I remember a girl (quite a few actually) in 9th grade that was hot and all woman. Stacked, sexy, and a real maneater. One of her nicknames was love nest and it was a real study in human nature watching her play mindgames with male teachers young enough to get it
    up
