Former CNN producer John Griffin has entered a guilty plea to one of the charges brought against him, about a year after being accused of enticing a youngster to his Vermont home for sex.
The plea deal stated that “John Griffin agrees to plead guilty since he is, in fact, guilty of the above crime,” the Vermont Digger, a nonprofit online news site, reported.
Griffin admitted guilt to “using a facility of interstate commerce to seek to persuade, induce, entice or coerce a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity” in the U.S. District Court in Burlington, Vermont. The additional accusations against him were dropped.

Griffin had resided in Stamford, Connecticut, but he has been imprisoned since his arrest in December of last year. After he was accused of child sex assault, CNN fired him.
Griffin was accused of paying more than $3,000 to cover a Nevada woman’s travel expenses so she would bring her 9-year-old kid to visit him in July 2020. Prosecutors claimed that the girl was coerced into performing sex acts while at Griffin’s residence in Ludlow, Vermont.
A $15 million lawsuit was also filed against him in the matter.

According to court documents, Fox News stated that the proof in the federal indictment into Griffin does include a video of a “completely naked 9-year-old girl” exhibited alongside Griffin.
According to a pre-trial detention memo obtained by Fox, “When confronted with this video during an interview by FBI agents, Griffin’s first response was merely to suggest he was not looking at the naked girl, despite that she was standing so close to him to be touching.”
According to the New York Post, the mother of the child was charged with child sex assault and child abuse.
Prosecutors claimed that Griffin had a record of attempting to convince parents of teenage girls to send their daughters to him for sex education. This pattern included the incident that resulted in Griffin’s arrest.
The Department of Justice said in a news release at the time Griffin was charged: “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.”
More on this story via The Western Journal:
“On these communication platforms, Griffin sought to persuade parents to allow him to train their daughters to be sexually submissive,” the release said.
“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,” the release stated. CONTINUE READING…
