The Sun City pediatrician -- who boasts in his bio on the Web site of his medical practice that he "enjoys caring for children of all ages and backgrounds" -- has been formally indicted on charges that he distributed kiddy-porn over the Internet.

Dr. Emilio Luna of Desert Valley Pediatrics has been formally indicted by a federal grand jury on five counts of distributing child pornography in interstate commerce.

Luna, 40, was arrested last week after federal investigators accused him of sharing kiddy porn -- some of which was adult-on-child -- over the Internet.


The alleged pederast used the Internet handle "Speedi69," to distribute the images to other pederasts, authorities claim. The FBI stumbled upon one of the images, looked up the IP address, and linked them to Luna's Sun City home.

Federal agents obtained a search warrant for Luna's house and seized three computers, four external hard drives, and about 300 DVDs, some of which were encrypted. They also found about $15,000 in cash in a file folder in his closet and several passports.

Luna was released from custody today on the condition that he turn over his passports, wear an electronic monitoring bracelet, and, most importantly, stay the hell away from kids.

He also signed a voluntary agreement with the Arizona Medical Board that prevents him from practicing medicine in Arizona indefinitely.

If convicted, Luna faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, or both.
