International Child Porn Ring Busted!

Posted by Dmitry Gorin | Dec 15, 2010 | 0 Comments

Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorneys who represent people charged with possession, distribution or creation of child pornography know that the law enforcement challenges are numerous. Police, Sheriff's deputies and even FBI agents are involved in trying to bring child pornographers to justice, meaning that any Attorney not only has to battle the best lawyers the government has, but the best law enforcement officers as well. A recent case demonstrates just how effective and efficient government child porn busts can be. An international child pornography ring that covered three different continents and required members to post explicit images on a secure Internet message board was dismantled and arrests of a dozen people or more has ensued. This international investigation led to the closure of what was known as the "Lost Boy" bulletin board and suspects from Germany to New Zealand were identified. Allegedly 35 men traded and posted pictures of young boys who were either naked or engaging in unlawful sex. The people who are implicated in this criminal activity are from a broad array backgrounds. One was a pediatrician, one was a lawyer and several were already registered sex offenders. According to authorities, a man from Los Angeles had been talking to an Italian national about child pornography and how to engage in child sex tourism in Romania. This is what tipped off European authorities to contact authorities in the United States. International search warrants were served at home and abroad with 16 people being arrested and charged with child pornography. Five men have pleaded guilty so far and face between five and thirty years in a federal prison. Other suspects have been charged in Brazil, in France, in Norway and the United Kingdom. As you can see, these are highly sophisticated investigations that get results and battling these allegations in court is incredibly difficult without a skilled attorney working for you. If you or someone you know has been charged with or arrested for child pornography, you need a skilled Defense Lawyer who understands federal courts and lawyers.
