    20 Women Arrested in Swedish Child Porn Raid


    "Swedish police say they have arrested 23 people in a nationwide raid against a child pornography ring, including 20 women.

    Police spokesman Sven-Ake Petters called the raid "unique" and said he has never come across so many female suspects in a child pornography investigation before. He says arrests were made at 12 different locations across Sweden on Wednesday and include women aged between 38 and 60...."

    An interesting blog post about child porn laws in Sweden by a Swedish-American:

    http://welcometosweden.blogspot.com/...in-sweden.html

    I would have to agree that it is indeed a slippery slope if the law bans pornographic photos of children under the age of 18 and the age of consent is 15. Hmmmm. I've always wondered how that worked in states that have an age of consent under the age of 18. I live in Oregon and you have to be 18 to consent here.

    I wonder if these women got caught up in the "new" laws. Possibly teens were old enough to consent to sex but not old enough to be photographed?

    Nope, doesn't sound like they got caught up in any new laws. Looks like they had a genuine interest in receiving the child porn.

    "....The fact the most of the suspects are middle-aged women aged 40 to 60 has flummoxed investigators. Even Interpol has turned its attention towards the case.

    "Having women get arrested for child pornography is something unique. On the other hand, material sometimes appears featuring women who carry out sexual assaults on children. But we've previously assumed there was a man behind the assault...."

    and

    "Some of the women also have families, including children who live at home..."
