Mistrial after jury deadlock in Alan T. Panda case

Author: Higgs Raccoon

The trial of Alan Berlin, known in the furry fandom as Alan T. Panda, has begun. Berlin, a resident of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, was arrested on May 28, 2009, on accusations that he had propositioned a fifteen-year-old boy over the internet. His arrest came after the boy’s parents found sexually explicit messages on his computer and they contacted the Attorney General’s Child Predator Unit.

Amongst furries, Berlin presented himself as a “daddyfur and caretaker” who was “looking for a babyfur to be (his) mate and companion in a long-term committed relationship.” When Berlin’s home was searched, wolf and cat-like costumes were found, and it was alleged that Berlin discussed dressing up in animal costumes and engaging in sex.

Update (14 Apr): The jury failed to reach a verdict. A new trial is set for May.
