Anti-porn crusader arrested in Sutter County, charged with child sex
A man who presents himself as an anti-pornography crusader and motivational speaker has been arrested on multiple charges involving sex with a child under 14.
Pauling was investigated in 2010 for alleged inappropriate relationships with six other underage girls in Redding but the case was never prosecuted.
According to Pauling's website, he was a producer of pornographic films for nine years beginning in 1997 before becoming a Christian and speaking out about porn industry and its effects on society and individuals.
During a presentation in Australia, Pauling claimed to have convinced at least 500 young women to participate in his productions.
More recently, Pauling spoke at St. Isadore Catholic Church in Yuba City in September.
Parish priest Matthew Blank said he has known Pauling for some time and has never doubted his sincerity. "What I know of him, he's a great guy," Blank said. "Let's just leave it at that."
In a 2008 ABC Nightline program, Pauling debated two porn stars and offered what now seems to be a sadly ironic statement.
"We're intelligent human beings," he said. "And when what we're doing is costing someone else and causing pain to someone else, we probably shouldn't be doing it."http://www.news10.net/story/news/local/2014/12/03/anti-porn-crusader-arrested/19839329/
