FBI’s Refusal to Release Details of Child Pornography Probe Compromises Case

The FBI may lose some of its cases against alleged pedophiles because the bureau has refused to release details of how investigators used the Tor network to track suspects.

ZDNet reports that a court overseeing the case against an alleged visitor of the site, Jay Michaud, dismissed evidence as a result.

The cost said the evidence can’t be used because against the Vancouver school administrator.

The FBI seized a website on the dark web last year so that investigators could track who used the site.

Since the FBI won’t reveal the full source code of the website takeover, the evidence isn’t permissible, a court said.

An alarming number of immigrants who are sex offenders are captured in South Texas.

Since October 2013, Border Patrol has apprehended nearly 180 immigrants who have prior convictions for sex offenses, KZTV Action 10 reports.

A majority of the offenders sexually assaulted children in the U.S.

Just this weekend, Border Patrol arrested three people with warrants related to sex crimes in Forth Worth, Virginia and Austin.

They are awaiting extradition.

Pedophiles are increasingly using webcams to watch children perform sex acts from as far away as other continents, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

A Pennsylvania man, for example, watched a 12-year-old perform for him at an Internet cafe in the Philippines. For a fee, the man was able to control the action in real time, the Post-Gazette wrote.

This exploitation – referred to as webcam child sex tourism – means pedophiles don’t have to travel across the world to molest a child.

“These cases are considered ‘virtual traveler’ cases,” said one of the FBI agents, James Kilpatrick, a computer forensics expert. “Instead of getting on a plane and flying to the Philippines, he can do this on the computer.”
