Five Arrested for Child Pornography in Los Angeles

Five Los Angeles County men were arrested yesterday after an intensive investigation by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputies described four of the men as distributing hard core child pornography and the 5th man was in possession of illegal child pornography. The men vary in age from 19 to 72 and live throughout Los Angeles County.

LA Sheriff’s detective John Howard said the six week investigation by the County Cyber Crimes Task Force discovered that the men were not doing this for financial gain and were seemingly not in contact or otherwise related to each other. The men were described as offering to share the subject materials with other interested parties. The material is described by sheriff’s officials as depicting children from 1 to16 years old engaged in sex acts with adults. The material was in the form of both still photographs and videotape.

Possession of child pornography is a felony in California and is punishable by time in the state prison and by mandatory registration as a sex offender under Penal Code Section 290.
