Maricopa Teen Caught With 500 Child-Porn Videos and Pictures After Year-Long FBI Investigation

A year-long child-porn investigation led FBI agents this summer to a Maricopa teenager with a personal stash of 500 videos and pictures of sexually exploited children.

The case was outlined in court records filed yesterday by the Arizona U.S. Attorney's Office, which requests the forfeiture of computer equipment seized from the kid's home.

The kid, who's either 17 or 18, hasn't been charged yet, so we'll hold off on naming him. Suffice to say, it looks like he's in big trouble.



FBI agents in the Innocent Images Unit in San Diego noticed back in May of 2010 that a GigaTribe user who went by "Boy44gy2" was sharing files containing child porn. Over the course of months, agents downloaded the user's files and reviewed them, then cyber-tracked the user.

Seeing that the Cox Communications connection originated from a man's home in Tempe, local FBI agents were put on the case. They also were able to download child porn from the Boy44gy2 account.

A renewed check on the Cox subscriber showed the man had moved to Maricopa. As more months went by, agents confirmed that file-sharing had been facilitated by the man's Cox account, that his home Wi-Fi was secured (which rules out the idea that someone was using his connection) and other identifying info.

On July 28, agents knocked on the door of the Maricopa home. They first interviewed the father -- and it quickly became clear that they needed to interview his son.

The teen 'fessed up to sharing the child porn, even though he knew it was illegal -- and admitted to possessing illegal images on his computer, records show.

Agents seized two laptops, a desktop computer, two SD chips and a thumb drive. The father petitioned in September to get some of the equipment back, which led to the official forfeiture claim filed yesterday.

The FBI declined comment on the case.

To make the teen porn video and sell it is big crime. After a year FBI caught the Maricopa Teen with the 500 child porn videos and pictures. It is such a good achievement for the FBI.

Every time I read about one of these cases it breaks my heart. Statistically speaking this kid has never touched a child and most likely never would have.Yet he will most likely go to prison for the rest of his life.

Morton Berger was sentenced to 200 years in prison for viewing 20 pictures of child pornography. It happens all the time. The only person I know of who has ever escaped the wrath of an over zealous MCAO prosecuter for these types of charges is Matt Bandy, his father is a heart surgeon and it was said they spent almost half a million dollars on attorneys fees alone. His case sounds very similar to this kids, in that they are both minors .

Robert Joseph Hamm, 32, a former Arizona Department of Corrections officer, pleaded guilty in Pima County Superior Court to repeatedly raping a 14 year old girl and his punishment was no jail/prison time what so ever, and a mere 7 years of probation. Seven years probation for raping a child vs. 200 years in prison for allowing your eyes to view pictures of someone else doing it????? really?????

You would most likely get less time for murdering someone then you will recieve for viewing illegal images. Its sad and discusting, but child pornography cases and what over zealous prosecutors build their careers on. They can stand on their soap box and preach to the ignorant people about how "it was all in the name of saving the children" , never mind that the boy in this story is a child himself.

These cases hit so close to home because my mentally handicapped brother, who has the mental compacity of a 12 year old (and thats on a good day) is currently going through the pretrial process of he was alledgedly caught to have 10 illegal images of a girl who was under the age of 18 on his computer. To say the proseuctor is out for blood is an under statement.  They want to send him away for life, he has never so much had a speeding ticket in his life. He passed a lie detector saying he has never touched a minor, never would and was simply looking a pornography and that was part of it. It doesnt make him a bad person, he doesnt deserve to pay for a few pictures with his entire life.This has not just destroyed my brothers life, it has made mine and my parents life un live-able. My dad got the easy way out and died shortly after my brother was arrested. He wont have to watch as the courts slow tighten a noose around his neck that ultimatly will cost him his life. It would have been more humane if the police put a bullet in the back of my brothers head the day they arrested him, atleast it would have been a quick death vs. it taking the past two years of a life sentence looming over his head not to mention my parents ENTIRE LIFE SAVINGS (upwards of $60,000.00) , plus their home just to pay his legal fees. Either way he would have gotten the same sentence.

Unless the boy in the article is extremely rich and can afford to hire Ed Novak he would be better off killing himself now.

very sad situation. I hope the judge is wise enough to put this kid somewhere he can get help instead of somewhere where he will be abused into being a real monster.

Why take the dad's computers?   Just because they can?     When this is settled all he has to do is buy another computer at his own expense.   So, why take a computer that doesn't have child porn on it now?     Or is he responsible for his son's activity?     If so, why wasn't he charged?    Makes no sense.   I'd show the door to the kid if that's the case.

This situation is a shame and is indicative of the piolitical problems with out justice system.

Viewing an image doesn't equal automatically equal guilt of being a current or future child molester. Hell, I have spoken to people that decades ago looked at such pics just because they were there, because it was illegal iow the xcitement of doing something illegal and none had or has had any propensity to molesting anyone. It is a subject that can't be duiscussed rationally in public by politicians because if they speak out against such heinous laws they are always charachterized as being pro-child pornorgraphy much like anyone that wants to legalize illegal drugs gets ostracized for their position no matter how rational and logical their position is.

The self righteousness of so many prosecuters is frightening. I feel for your family, you don't deserved this whatsoever.

Get help? In Arizona? are you serious? He will, in all likelihood, be placed somewhere where the transformation into a "Real Monster" will be accelerated.

yes, I agree. He needs to get some help and maybe since he is young he can get the help he needs. I don't know the ages of the "child" porn in question, it might be too late.

Im pretty sure there is kiddy porn on your home computer also.  the cops need to check you out.

it's called "evidence".  when a kid uses his parents stuff to commit crimes that stuff is going to get confiscated.

because they have to be sure that none of the porn was on the other computers. It's standard procedure. He is responsible because he is the owner of the network as well.

yes, I sorta wondered if it would be illegal for him to have a picture of his GF/BF if they were 17 too.

They have made things crazy. Back when I was younger one of my gfs who was older took some naughty pics of herself. She was 16 when I was 15.. back then even she could have gotten in trouble.

Polaroid cameras were fun!

I believed he's being serious. Besides it is still reformable to help a young person than it is for an older sex offender. Every young person deserves a shot at professional help regardless. Did i remember correctly that you sir, were in the mental health profession? It doesn't sound like you were a professional based on some of the things you say in here. Glad they put you out of work or business.

And btw, you're just another abhorrent white supremacist using the code #s of 14. You should be very ashamed of yourself.

PTCGAZ, there were several reports through out the nation, that kids are getting arrested and/or are registered as "sex offenders", when they are caught with "naughty" pictures of their GF/BF on their cellphones. It is illegal in most states for a teen to have a nudie pic of their classmates of the same age as a minor.

As for the "polaroid cameras", that was true back then when they couldn't go to store to get their 35mm film developed.

What is your problem with the Hells Angels MC? Sorry, I saw your comment, but I didn't want to read through all the stupid comments to get the answer. How old are the people on here, anyway? 12, 13 yrs old? Geez, not very intelligent conversations. Anyways, about the Hells Angels? What seems to be your problem?

PTCGAZ
PTCGAZ

yes, like back in the 90s.

And I thought in those cases it was because one of them was 18.. But if that is the case, wow really. What is America a police state? I had fun with a Polaroid cameras back in the day.

BTW it cost as much to take one picture as it did to develop 20 pictures or something back then.
