    Feds accuse man of using Facebook to distribute child porn


    "A Lincolnton [NC] man has been accused of distributing child pornography on the social networking site Facebook, according to federal court indictments.

    James Paul Byrd, 38, was charged Dec. 8 on two counts of distributing child pornography. U.S. Marshals placed Byrd in Gaston County Jail pending a January court date.

    Byrd used a woman’s name to set up a Facebook page titled “little girls love to play to ,” according to federal indictments. Byrd then used the page to “identify individuals with a sexual interest in pubescent and pre-pubescent females,” court documents state.

    People who signed on as friends or members of the “little girls love to play to ” group could then advertise, distribute, view and download images and videos of child pornography, according to the federal indictment...."

    and

    ".....Others facing federal charges include Michael Engelking, David Large, Brian Slott, Daniel Slott and Henry Wright. All of the men used women’s names online and Facebook groups to distribute explicit images of young girls, according to the indictment...."

    and

    "....Byrd, a former owner of Byrd Sundries in Lincolnton and a former banker, is scheduled to appear in federal court on Jan. 10. He has appealed the order for detention with the U.S. District Court and has filed a motion to continue his case to a later date. Byrd Sundries closed several years ago. It was an ice cream shop and convenience store on Main Street that served as a hangout for families and children.

    Byrd also sold ice cream at the Lincolnton High School concession stand..."

    What? How the heck did they get away with that?

    It would have been great if they let us know where these guys were from, right?

    Maybe a coinkydink that a Brian K Slott is a Registered Sex Offender out of Merrill, WI? Sexual assault of a child. Offense in 2000. Guess what? He's got a relative with the same name of the guy with his last name mentioned here!

    Izzy, this link has alot of comments. I don't have a chance to read them all but no doubt they should be interesting.

    Whatever you do don't google that exact name of that creepy title they had for FB. A few fishy ones came up. You know I didn't click on them, but you? You'll blow up your computer.

    Thanks Izzy.

    Being that I can't find a thing about the locations of several of the arrested men, I hope that I have gotten the correct Michael Engelking. If not, I will immediately take it down. Can anyone help with this?

    I'm holding off judging the guy in the black robes. I had no idea there were so many men in the US with that name. ITA, I could care less if he's pagan or Church of Christ as long as he leaves the little ones alone. The articles I can find give no age for the arrested. I can find no federal indictment for Engelking.

    However......isn't it just like Filly to say she doesn't have time to read the comments but "man, are they ever interesting"? Of course, I had to check and guess what I found? Turns out that James Byrd is also a youth minister and the son of a recently passed very popular NC athlete. Now here's where it gets a bit confusing. If you google James Byrd's name, the comment that he was a banker and a youth minister comes up. I found a number of sites which state that fact. But when you open the particular article, I find that most have dropped the youth minister label. Why is that?

    I found this single cached site:

    http://thoora.com/f/37905

    "...A former Lincolnton bank manager and church youth minister was arraigned in federal court this month on two child pornography charges. James Paul Byrd, 38, of Lincolnton is in the Gaston County Jail without bond...."

    It's also not hard to find his elder relative's obit. He was also an educator and very involved with the community, sports and kids. I wonder how long James has been at this?

    Think I figured this out.

    http://www.foxcharlotte.com/news/nc-...112568614.html

    "Six Lincolnton, NC men are being accused of distributing child porn on a website they created using women's names.

    From January 2 - April 12 James Paul Byrd, and five others: Michael Engelking, David Large, Brian Slott, Daniel Slott, and Henry Wright; used Facebook to advertise, distribute, possess, and view child pornography. They set up two groups titled "little girls love to play to " and "girls girls girls "...."

    I checked and a Michael Eugene Engelking, 64, lives in Rocky Mount, NC--250 miles away from Lincolnton. I can find no other addresses or articles concerning the man. I'll ask the mods to remove the MS page links above as I don't think that's the right guy.

    Wouldn't it be awful to share a name with a child pornographer?

    That's why everyone should have an ultra unique name. IMO

    Woman you are good. How'd you find that "Girls girls girls (happy face)"?

    I knew that smilie face would excite everybody as I've never used those. That's the way the article copied, though. Don't worry, I haven't gotten any smarter.

    And ITA agree about names. I cannot tell you how many problems have been caused by our children's rapist being named Smith.

    Hopefully, we'll save Mr. Blackrobes from any embarrassment. My deepest apologies to the man. I'm still confused, thought, as that name does NOT come up in Lincolnton, but in Rocky Mount. Maybe Engelking was staying with one of his buddies.
