Evan Emory had been charged with “manufacturing child pornography,” a charge that comes with a potential 20-year prison sentence, over an edited YouTube video.

Because of that, Officer Adam Josephs has now filed a $1.2 million defamation lawsuit.
Anthony Graber, a Maryland Air National Guard staff sergeant, faces up to 16 years in prison. His crime?
