Pee-Wee charged in kiddy porn case

SALON notes in an AP story that Paul "Pee-Wee Herman" Reubens has been charged with another porn-related offense along with actor Jeffrey Jones, best known as the principal in FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF. Reubens was charged with one misdemeanor count of possessing materials depicting children under the age of 18 engaged in sexual conduct while Jones was charged with possession and with a felony, hiring a 14-year-old to pose for sexually explicit photos.

Reubens resurrected a career after an earlier charge of indecent exposure in Florida in 1991, although not to the same level of popularity the one-time children's show host had experienced prior to the arrest.

Both men were released after surrendering to authorities and posting $20,000 each. The charges stemmed from searches of the actors' homes carried out in November of 2001.
