John Grisham chose a somewhat odd cause to get behind this week.
In an interview with The Telegraph, the best-selling author brought up the topic of child pornography purveyors and said the following:
"We have prisons now filled with guys my age... who've never harmed anybody, would never touch a child, but they got online one night, started surfing around, probably had too much to drink or whatever, pushed the wrong buttons, went too far, and got into child porn."
Amidst an understandable uproar once the remarks went viral, Grisham then issued an apology and an explanation.
"Anyone who harms a child for profit or pleasure, or who in any way participates in child pornography - online or otherwise - should be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” Grisham said.
