PORN STING SAVES KIDS – Thursday September 6 2012

– An American child victim of Victorian sex offenders has been rescued and three others identified amid state-wide police raids.
Child predators have been arrested across the state, with a series of police raids seizing more than 25,000 child exploitation images.
Four children suffering abuse in the United States were identified in the operation, with one already rescued by authorities there.
Among those arrested in the raids was a 21-year-old Wodonga man who was allegedly grooming a 10-year-old boy over the internet for sex.
Nineteen men from across Victoria, and one from Tasmania, were charged with alleged offences including grooming a child under 16 for sex, manufacturing exploitation material, procuring a minor for sex, using a carriage service for child abuse material and possessing child pornography.
The Victorians charged range from 18 to 72 years of age and come from Dandenong, Know, Springvale, Tullamarine, Chelsea, Melbourne, Elwood, Berwick, North Melbourne, Frankston, Burwood, Brunswick, Kangaroo Flat, Camberwell, Altona and Templestowe.
Victoria Police combined forces with the Australian Federal Police to charge the 20 people with more than 45 offences relating to online child exploitation in less than a month.
Since August 6th, Taskforce Astraea and AFP’s Child Protection Operations executed a series of raids.
Five of the offenders were charged as a result of online chats with undercover detectives.
News of the raids coincided with National Child Protection Week.
Assistant Commissioner Steve Fontana said it was a timely reminder that police were doing all they could to “eliminate” the “abhorrent crimes” of child abuse – Wayne Flower
