Child Pornography Crackdown: Coordinated Law Enforcement Agency Efforts Lead to 77 Arrests in Florida


Governor Charlie Crist stated that 77 people have been arrested as part of a coordinated law enforcement effort to crackdown on child pornography offenders. The 10 week operation was called “Operation Orange Tree”. The ages of the criminal suspects ranged from 17 years old to 83 years old. This shows that criminals who partake in child pornography can range from the very young to the very old. Some of the arrests lead to action by the Florida Department of Children and Families removing children from homes. Over twenty law enforcement agencies participated in this sweep.
