CNN producer charged with Ludlow child sex crime

John Griffin, 44, of Ludlow and Stamford, Connecticut was arrested Friday by the FBI after a federal grand jury in Vermont charged Griffin with three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Vermont said.

TV news network CNN confirmed Saturday that Griffin has been employed as producer for eight years.

According to the indictment, from April to July of 2020, Griffin utilized the messaging applications Kik and Google Hangouts to communicate with people purporting to be parents of minor daughters, conveying to them, among other ideas, that a “woman is a woman regardless of her age,” and that women should be sexually subservient and inferior to men. On these communication platforms, Griffin sought to persuade parents to allow him to train their daughters to be sexually submissive.

In June of 2020, Griffin advised a mother of 9- and 13-year-old daughters that the mother’s responsibility was to see that her older daughter was “trained properly.” Griffin later transferred over $3,000 to the mother for plane tickets so the mother and her 9-year-old daughter could fly from Nevada to Boston’s Logan airport. The mother and child flew to Boston in July of 2020, where Griffin picked them up in his Tesla and drove them to his Ludlow house. At the house, the daughter was directed to engage in, and did engage in, unlawful sexual activity.

The indictment also includes specific allegations that Griffin attempted to entice two other children over the internet to engage in sexual activity. In April of 2020, Griffin proposed to engage in a “virtual training session” over a video chat that would include him instructing the mother and her 14-year-old daughter to remove their clothing and touch each other at his direction. In June of 2020, Griffin proposed to a purported mother of a 16-year-old daughter that she take a “little mother-daughter trip” to Griffin’s Ludlow ski house for sexual training involving the child.

On each count, Griffin faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years of imprisonment and a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The indictment includes a notice that states the federal government intends to seek the forfeiture of Griffin’s Ludlow house, his Tesla, a Mercedes, and other property that was used in the commission of the charged offenses.

  1. Seems quite fitting for CNN’s narrative. They were all so doubtful of the sex ring that was destroyed by Trump in 2019. It was just a conspiracy theory, remember? Chris Wallace is following the money to CNN after this story broke. CNN is fatally becoming the place for all propagandists and fear mongers. He will fit in just fine with his new colleagues.

  2. Just perplexed that any mother would hand over her underage daughter to some male internet stranger to “train” them properly sexually. Yeah, he’s to blame & is the perverse criminal, but where has the average person’s judgement gone? I guess we can see that so many longer possess good judgement or instincts as Biden was elected president. Or so are being told, anyway.

    • I doubt they were actually the children’s mothers. They were probably “posing” as mothers. Probably traffickers.

  3. Best of luck to Mr. Griffin convincing his fellow Federal inmates that he’s just a “Minor Attracted Person.” I’m sure he’ll be just fine.

  4. I would expect nothing less from someone employed by the “Clinton News Network” Lets hope he gets the maximum and maybe he can get a few “lessons” about submission while he’s in the pen.

  5. It’s even better that Andrew Cuomo won’t ever be president, his brother Chris got fired and Chris Wallace continues his downfall at CNN. Of Course Chris C knew nothing of this dirt bag’s persona as his producer.

  6. So, people, you really think it can’t happen in your own back yard? This is the tip of the iceberg. When you vote in democrat perverts you invite the pervert gang in.
