Sex Crime Investigation Caught Some Unlikely Characters
“Seventy New York City-area men and one woman have been charged as the result of a five-week investigation by the Homeland Security Investigations arm of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement,” according to the Associated Press.
“Seemingly respectable members of the mainstream – a police officer, a paramedic, a rabbi, an airline pilot, an architect, a Boy Scout leader – were caught using the Internet to collect and trade child pornography, federal officials said Wednesday,” the AP article continued. http://news.yahoo.com/dozens-charged-child-porn-case-nyc-area-122955761.html
While there have not been any public updates on these cases since May 2014, we probably will not hear about these sex crime cases any time soon. These types of cases take time to run through the court system. While the acts may be heinous most will likely end in plea deals for the first time offenders. For others who have been charged with a sex crime in the past they will receive a much harser sentence. Any of those who were arrested in this sting who have already designated as sex offenders will most likely spend many years in prison.
Although they are charged in what most would say is a reprehensible crime, the accused are still innocent until proven guilty.
