Voice Actor Scott Freeman Arrested on Possession of Child Pornography

Popular anime voice actor Scott Freeman (Issei Hyodo in High School DxD, Yuuji Sakamoto in Baka and Test, Takashi Kosuda in B Gata H Kei) pleaded guilty to eight accounts of possession of child pornography on July 30th, and was convicted the same day, sentenced to three years jail time in the Texas state prison.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...ography/.92346

FUNimation, whom Scott was previously employed by, has released a statement saying they have ended their relationship with Scott in light of this information. In May, they had replaced Scott Freeman with Josh Grelle as the voice of Issei Hyodo in their broadcast dub of High School DxD BorN, likely in response to this matter.

I'm very disappointed. Scott is a very talented man who had a very promising career ahead of him, and to have all that taken away for something like this is beyond stupid. I'll certainly miss his excellent work, but I won't miss the man who did it. He deserves all three of those years in prison for what he did.

Humans are what they are, and what they are is naturally stupid. Not much we can do about it other than try to be less stupid than those around us.

i don't think i've seen anything he's starred in, and now I most likely won't. Even once he's released he's not going to be in anything else, he's done, career and life all gone down the drain.
a shame for someone considered so popular and talented

Its definitely worth listening to him in what he has done. I don't think it's fair to the art to judge it by the same standards as the artist.

Wasn't....


... didn't we discuss something related to this elsewhere weeks ago?


.... well, whatever the case, this finally FINALLY explains why he voluntarily chose to discontinue voice acting for all time, though now it's clearly no longer anything than just depression. You also didn't mention he is England in Hetalia, ANOTHER role that will be replaced if Funimation keeps licensing the later seasons, because Hetalia: The World Twinkle is currently airing. This is severely disappointing. Now I kind of rethink all the comforting replies he got on Facebook when he announced his depression and acting retirement months ago.

Well

Its been three years. Its going to be weird not to hear his voice in the shows such as hetalia, since he was one of the main voice actors.

And High School DXD is still as hot as ever and is still being plugged! They of course recast the character, but it still sucks.
