WASHINGTON » U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says more than 200 adults have been arrested in a five-week, international investigation of child pornography.

ICE Director John Morton says 123 child victims were identified in the investigation, which ended in early December. It found 110 victims in 19 U.S. states. The others were living in six countries. Five victims were younger than 3 years old.

Morton says the investigation is part of the agency's effort to find and rescue victims, and arrest abusers and people who make or transmit child pornography.

Two unidentified adults have also been charged in Los Angeles with molesting a girl who appeared in online photos to be about 13 when she was abused. The man and woman are charged as "Jane Doe" and "John Doe."

Since this is inter-state, it’s a federal crime. The feds have had access to the death penalty since 1994. Try to keep up.

I'm so glad they were caught but so horrified that it was happening in the first place. It's unbearable to even think about.
