Crimson Star Media's Corey Maddox Arrested for Parole Violation
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office in Georgia reports that Crimson Star Media head Corey Maddox was arrested on July 25 at 3:46 p.m. EDT in Newnan on charges of violation of probation. The sheriff's office docket lists that there was no bond given in the case, and the docket does not list a date of Maddox's release.
According to the local Atlanta television station WSB-TV, Maddox was arrested in 2008 on nine counts of sexual exploitation of children. Police at that time said they found photographs of children between the ages of 5 to 10 years old "that appeared to be sexual in nature." Maddox is listed on the Sex Offender Registry in Georgia for the same crime with a conviction date of October 6, 2010.
Crimson Star Media was founded on May 8, and the company announced its first anime acquisition in June for the 2006 television anime series Looking Up At The Half-Moon (Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora). Amazon currently lists that the complete collection of the series will ship on DVD on September 27, but RightStuf currently lists the release date as to be determined.
Maddox did not respond to ANN's request for a statement by press time.
