Gregory Hoffman is a prisoner about whom Nathan Larson wrote on 1 July 2015:
Gregory Hoffman is my new hero. He was sentenced to 25 years and $150,000 in restitution for tracking down the infamous Vicky, one of the two rather high-profile and litigious "victims" after whom were named the Amy and Vicky Child Pornography Victim Restitution Improvement Act which is currently pending before Congress, and trying to talk some sense into her. I've heard from numerous people who have seen the Vicky series that it's evident from her body language, mannerisms, etc. that she was enjoying what was happening. That's why those videos are so popular, and became some of the most widely distributed on the Internet.
I'm going to write him a letter and tell him that even if he never accomplishes anything else for the rest of his life, that one act alone was cool enough to justify his existence. I have to admire his persistence and resourcefulness in devoting years of his life to finding her, and not giving up till he succeeded.
I don't believe he stalked her. Stalking involves placing another person in reasonable fear of death, criminal sexual assault, or bodily injury. At most, he harassed her. But because the government thought he inflicted "substantial emotional distress," he now has to spend a couple decades in prison (which can be a substantially emotionally distressing situation).
Society wants to silence people like Socrates or Gregory Hoffman who upset people by candidly telling the truth as they see it. I was just reading his plea agreement: ---
On July 26, 2007, at approximately 1:46 p.m., defendant Greg Hoffman, using MySpace account with user name "Greg," friend number 190220390 and web address https://www.myspace.com/greg_from_ny, contacted "K," via her MySpace account. "K" is a victim of a known child pornography series. She was 9 and 10 years old during the time that the images in the series were produced.

I wanna know why u plan to testify against ur step dad. Cuz in all ur videos u seemed very willing and went along with it. I've been looking for you for almost 5 years and you don't even have the fortitude to confront the truth. You are a COWARD and you know that the truth is you don't wanna see your step dad go to prison. Why would you speak out against him on national TV? I think you are angered because he let the whole world and jus so you know l loved and adored those videos very much. He jus wanted to show the world how gorgeous u really were. Why is that such a crime?? Stop listening to what others tell you and stand on your own and formulate your own opinion. Jus make sure you have thought about it extensively before you do. I really like u a lot, I am here to talk to u as a friend if u need one to talk to. Don't be embarrassed or ashamed about your past with others.
