Things looked grim for Carlos Simon-Timmerman, arrested by U.S. border agents in Puerto Rico while bringing an “underage-sex” video home from a holiday in Mexico.
The star of “Little Lupe the Innocent” looked very young, and federal prosecutors called an “expert witness” pediatrician, who assured the jury, based on the girl’s underdevelopment, that she was a minor.
However, Simon-Timmerman’s lawyer had located “Lupe” via her Web site, and she cheerfully agreed to fly in from her home in Spain with her passport and other documents to prove, at a dramatic point in the trial, that she was 19 when the video was made.
Simon-Timmerman was acquitted.
