Actor Paul Reubens aka Pee-wee Herman has plead guilty to a misdemeanor obscenity charge for possessing allegedly pornographic photos of kids. He'll be on informal probation for three years, during which time he must stay away from children. In exchange, California prosecutors dropped a more serious child-pornography charge against him. "I am disappointed any part of my art collection was ever deemed inappropriate," Reubens said in a statement. "Taking responsibility by calling a few images in this collection 'obscene' and paying a $100 fine seemed like the sanest way to make it end."
