Purported Abductee Stan Romanek Held On Child Pornography Charges
$20,000 Bail Posted
The much maligned and largely discredited abductee Stan Romanek has been arrested on child pornography charges, according to the Loveland Reporter-Herald - a disturbingly titled paper in this instance. They report:
’According to police, the arrest was the result of a months-long investigation into tips provided by the Department of Homeland Security.
The warrant for Romanek's arrest called for no bond, but after an initial appearance before a judge, the terms were modified to a $20,000 personal recognizance bond. As of Thursday night he remained in custody.’’
Romanek has garnered some larger mainstream publicity, appearing on Larry King Live and Fox News touting his “Boo video” of an alien puppet at his window. He has even claimed to have been returned after an abduction dressed in Betty Hill’s clothing from her own purported abduction decades before. If found guilty of the charges and sent to prison, one imagines he may want to avoid talk of alien probes, nor would he want to wake up in women’s clothing again while inside.
It seems ironic that Romanek, a man who, for years had accused the government and officials of covering up the truth about UFOs would have been accused himself of a serious charge as this. Romanek, predictably believes that his arrest is part of a smear campaign to silence his work on the UFO cover up.
He continues to suggest that the child pornorahpy had been planted on his computer. In an article in The Huffington Post relating to Koopman's report its said "I told him this was virtually impossible and he did not argue with me," Koopman's report said. "He said he has historically looked at pornography on his computer but tried to stay away from the child pornography."
His wife, Lisa Romanek, had since become active on her Facebook account posting articles relating to government hacking.
