    Child porn investigation catches California lawyer

    Child porn investigation catches California lawyer

    (CNN) -- A lawyer who served in the Clinton administration and more recently was an adviser to California's lieutenant governor pleaded guilty to a child porn charge in a San Diego federal court Monday.

    Wade Rowland Sanders admitted to having 600 images of minors on his computer, including a video depicting "several prepubescent females engaged in sexual conduct with an adult male and performing oral sex on one another," according to a statement from U.S. Attorney Karen Hewitt.

    FBI agents raided Sanders' home last May after they suspected his home Internet service account was used to download several pictures and a video showing underage girls having sex with adult men, according to an investigator's sworn statement.

    "Sanders admitted that he had downloaded child pornography using the program Limewire but that he deleted the files once he noticed that they had been downloaded," FBI Special Agent John Caruthers said. A search of Sanders' computer found the child porn files saved on his hard drive in two "My Documents" folders, Caruthers said.
    At least one of the young girls in the photos was identified and is a "known victim," the investigator said. When Sanders, 67, is sentenced on March 30, he could get up to 10 years in prison and be ordered to pay a $250,000 fine. The minimum sentence for the charge is five years with supervised release for his lifetime and registration as a sex offender, the prosecutor said.

    FBI agents discovered the illegal downloads as part of a nationwide initiative called Project Safe Childhood. The multi-agency program, which began in 2006, is "designed to combat the growing epidemic of child exploitation and abuse," the U.S. Attorney's statement said.
    Sanders was a U.S. Navy Swift boat captain during the Vietnam War, where he earned the Silver Star, Bronze Star and Purple Heart. He retired from the U.S. Navy as a captain.
    Sanders was chosen by fellow Swift boat veteran John Kerry to introduce him at the 2004 Democratic Convention, when the senator accepted the presidential nomination.
    He briefly entered the 2000 congressional race in a San Diego district, but withdrew citing lack of funding. He ran as a Democrat.

    Sanders served as the senior adviser to California Lt. Gov. John Garamendi for Veterans and Military Affairs until the time of his arrest, according to the U.S. Attorney's office. He was also in the Clinton administration as a deputy assistant secretary of the Navy.
    When Garamendi's office announced Sanders' appointment in July 2007, it said he was a practicing lawyer and a community activist.

    "He is a member of the San Diego Police Department Senior Oversight Committee and has served on many non-profit boards," the lieutenant governor's office said.

    Detroit area man sentenced to 5 years for possession of child pornography

    Detroit area man sentenced to 5 years for possession of child pornography
    Possessed more than 1,700 images and 37 videos



    DETROIT - A 41 year-old suburban Detroit man, who possessed over a thousand images of child pornography, was sentenced to five years in prison on December 18, 2008 as the result of a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigation. Thomas Kennard of Clawson, Mich., pleaded guilty to receipt and possession of child pornography.
    "Exploitation of any individual for the purpose of entertainment is wrong. But the exploitation of children for these purposes is particularly heinous," said Brian Moskowitz, Special Agent-In-Charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Detroit. "ICE will continue its resolve to hunt and bring to justice purveyors and partakers of child pornography. Today's sentencing is a clear demonstration of that commitment."

    The information presented to the court at the time of the plea established that from January 2006 through February 2006, special agents from ICE identified Kennard through "Operation Emissary," an investigative effort focused on identifying and apprehending individuals purchasing subscription access to child pornographic websites. Investigation by special agents from ICE revealed that Kennard used a credit card to purchase access to a members-only child pornographic website where approximately 490 images were viewed and or downloaded.

    ICE agents conducted a search of Kennard's home and seized a computer and related computer items which revealed over 1,700 images of child pornography and videos with children ranging from four to 16 years of age.

    Berg said, "Federal laws targeting the child pornography trade aim to eliminate the victimization of children everywhere, because those who possess child pornography create the market for images of child sexual abuse. We will prosecute these crimes vigorously."
    This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney John O'Brien for the Eastern District of Michigan.

    This case was brought as part of "Project Safe Childhood." In February 2006, the Department of Justice launched Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorney's Offices, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, and identify and rescue victims. For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit http://www.projectsafechildhood.gov/.

    This case was also investigated under Operation Predator, which is a nationwide ICE initiative to protect children from sexual predators, including those who travel overseas for sex with minors, Internet child pornographers, criminal alien sex offenders, and child sex traffickers. Since Operation Predator was launched in July 2003, ICE agents have arrested more than 11,600 individuals.

    ICE encourages the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free hotline at 1-866-DHS-2ICE. This hotline is staffed around the clock. Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, an Operation Predator partner, at 1-800-843-5678 or http://www.cybertipline.com/.

    Hope they hang 'em high.



    One question though, wouldn't this be FBI's territory, not ICE?

    No, ICE has always and traditionally worked CP cases. The FBI doesn't have exclusive jurisdiction. USPIS also works these cases as well.
