Griffin was arrested for grooming minors for sex and for attempting to entice other minors on the Internet into sexual activity.

A video of Griffin and Cuomo has emerged after both were fired following the accusations leveled against them. Cuomo is seen lifting the producer who held a toy Pope in his hand while making a funny expression. The image was uploaded in September 2015 ahead of his visit to the US. The caption read, "@ChrisCuomo says he can get me blessed by #PopFrancis thanks to my "giant baby head." Let's try it shall we??" Griffin has been charged with three counts of trying to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity. According to the DOJ's statement on the case, "from April to July of 2020, Griffin utilized the messaging applications Kik and Google Hangout 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 women should be sexually subservient and inferior to men."

John Griffin claimed there is a 'wanton w**re' at the core of all women

According to court documents, "on several occasions in 2020, during chat conversations over Kik and Google Hangouts, John Griffin stated he believed there is a 'wanton w**re' at 'the core of any' female and that 'a woman is a woman regardless of her age.' During these chat conversations, John Griggin espoused a 'way of life' in which women are sexually subservient and inferior to men. Using Kik and Google Hangouts, John Griffin sought parents who would allow him to train their minor daughters to be sexually subservient.

'On or about February 21, 2020, John Griffin acting through a Vermont limited liability company, acquired a ski house located at 126 Grouse Lane in Ludlow, Vermont. John Griffin communicated in furtherance of the crimes alleged herein while in or near his ski house and offered to host mothers and their minor daughters at this location for purposes of sexual training. In the course of this attempt, John Griffin engaged in text conversations over Google Hangouts with a person (Person 1) who purported to be the father of a 14-year-old daughter. During the conversations, John Griffin advised Person 1 that John Griggin had sexually trained girls as young as 7 years old. Advised that Person 1's 14-year-old daughter would be a good candidate for such training, alongside her mother. Proposed that the training would begin via a video chat during which John Griffin planned to instruct the 14-year-old and her mother to remove their clothing and touch each other."

Documents further revealed he engaged in a conversation over Kik with a woman purported to be a mother of two daughters aged 9 and 13. During this chat that began on June 14, 2020. he told the woman that "one of the big lies of this society is that women are delicate innocent angels and that they are in actuality, naturally, the dirtiest s**ts possible, in EVERY metric." He said, "when handled properly, a woman is a woman regardless of her age," and "it's your job, in concert with me to see that PERSON 3's 13-year-old is trained properly."

Griffin's conversations with the father of a 14-year-old daughter he wanted to recruit, revealed he told him that he had trained girls as young as seven. He told the father that training would begin over a video chat and that he wished to introduce his daughter to "spanking" and "c**k worship." The indictment didn't reveal if the man who is unnamed gave up his daughter. Griffin is also accused of paying for sex with underage girls, including the time he transferred $3,000 to a woman to fly from Nevada to Boston in July last year. The accusations against Griffin come years after he voiced his disappointment regarding the rising crimes against children. "Just did the math. We have, count 'em, FOUR stories about people abusing kids today. 3 up now. If we're society's mirror, you people suck," Griffin tweeted in 2010.
