Doesn't seem to bother any in the media and music that Chuck Berry did time in jail for molesting a 14-year-old girl...

How?
Bob Dylan hasn't killed anybody so I haven't a clue how I would feel about his music in that hypothetical event. I might be affected or I might not, I don't know.
Bob Dylan's art versus the Nanny Goat's? I don't know about you  but as it stands now, nobel prize winner  Bob is a messiah in the world of art/music
I might find it difficult to separate Bob from his art or I might not and carry on appreciating his work.  but i have no difficulty with consigning Humphries'  tiny contribution   to the world of art  to the dustbin.
Therefore your argument is fallacious.

Even if you use a more realistic example , say Michael Jackson  .
If a person really liked MJ's music but believed him guilty of child sex abuse, did it affect that person's  relationship to his music?
However, even with that more realistic example, Jackson's contribution to the world of music and art is by an infinite factor, much greater than Humphries'. so I might well make an exception and still hold MJs music in high esteem, just as I might  Mozart's music.
 I don't have that much of a relationship with Humphries' work, in the scheme of things it made a very small contribution to art and culture in society,  it's in the past and I can just forget about it without missing a heartbeat.

That you know of  ;)

Used to love his articles. He had one or two on Howard Wilkinson in Leeds, calling Tomas Brolin a "poofta", or some such sobriquet.

Now, he's a paedo. The beard was a dead giveaway though. Like Jimmy Saville, it was as plain to see really (in hindsight).

A sick bast*rd. Hope it gets a long long sentence.

And as for these two, they should hang their heads in shame.

It could have been anyone he ghostwrote for. He is a very talented writer. In addition to everything else. He reminds me of the story Nora Mharcais Bhig.

He looks like a peder ass alright. Some fall from grace.

http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/courts/prominent-journalist-and-author-tom-humphries-to-be-sentenced-over-sex-offences-involving-underage-girl-35866057.html
The most striking thing about that court apearance was that he asked to be taken into custody. Sex offender is the absolute lowest of the low in our society. Even scumbags look down on sex offenders. He probably wouldn't be safe.
