    IN~David Bostic, 25, head of global child porn ring

    I'm literally wrecked after reading the details of what Dr. Earl Bradley did to his young patients. The vile brutality just numbs me. Now this. The most vulnerable...toddlers again. Where are we going to imprison all the child pornographers we arrest? Can we even keep up?

    U.S. says Indiana child pornographer part of global ring

    Federal prosecutors in Indianapolis said on Monday they had broken up a worldwide child pornography distribution ring fed out of Bloomington, Indiana. The U.S. attorney's office said David Bostic, 25, of Bloomington had pleaded guilty to charges he produced and distributed pornography primarily involving children under the age of five.

    Bostic, who faced 66 counts of sexually exploiting children, trading child pornography, and possessing child pornography, will be sentenced at a later date. He faces up to 1,000 years in prison...."

    and

    "...So far, the investigation has resulted in the arrest of 20 co-conspirators, "including several individuals overseas." Also on Monday, federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment against five other individuals, including a Briton named Domminich Shaw, allegedly involved in the "international trading of child pornography images" along with Bostic...."

    My guess is that the guilty plea is the reason we see so many co-consprirators under arrest or investigation. Bostic must have rolled on them all.

    A little view in the window as to how the process works. The DOJ lays low after the initial arrest, while the investigation continues.

    http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2011/June/11-crm-728.html


    "David R. Bostic, of Bloomington, Ind., pleaded guilty today to multiple charges of sexual exploitation of children relating to his participation in an international conspiracy to sexually exploit children through the trading of child pornography, announced Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Joseph H. Hogsett of the Southern District of Indiana and Michael Welch, Special Agent in Charge for the FBI’s Indianapolis Division. To date, a related operation has led to the identification and apprehension of 20 suspects in the United States and abroad and the rescue of more than a dozen children.

    Bostic, 25, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Court Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson in the Southern District of Indiana. Law enforcement agents arrested Bostic on Nov. 17, 2010, following the execution of a search warrant at his residence in Bloomington, which uncovered evidence that Bostic produced child pornography and was a member of a group that traded sexually explicit images of children, primarily babies and toddlers. Within days of his arrest, an operation was launched to identify and apprehend other members of the group.

    According to court documents, Bostic engaged in the sexual exploitation of children on multiple occasions to produce sexually explicit images of the minors, including four females, between the ages of two months and three years, as well as a male who was four years old. Bostic distributed the images to the group with whom he traded child pornography.

    “David Bostic and his co-conspirators committed horrific acts of abuse and exploitation against infants and toddlers, and then distributed images of these acts to others around the world,” said Assistant Attorney General Breuer. “The crimes to which Mr. Bostic pleaded guilty today are among the most heinous imaginable, and we are aggressively pursuing others in connection with this operation. We will deal swiftly and harshly with predators who exploit the most vulnerable in our society.”

    “Among the most important missions of this office is to keep Hoosier children safe from those who would prey upon them,” said U.S. Attorney Hogsett. “The production of child pornography is a heinous crime against a child, because it perpetuates the sexual abuse of that child for as long as the images exist, particularly where, as here, the images are distributed to like minded individuals. This then fuels the twisted fantasies of those individuals, and endangers children around them.”

    “This investigation required the cooperation of local, state, federal and international law enforcement partners,” said Special Agent in Charge Welch. “These partners will continue to aggressively pursue those who would do harm to the most innocent victims of all and to ensure there is no safe haven on the internet for pedophiles.”

    Bostic is charged in two separate cases filed under seal in February 2011 and unsealed today at his plea hearing. A criminal information charges Bostic with 36 counts of the sexual exploitation of children for his production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. An indictment charges Bostic with one count of conspiracy to distribute child pornography, one count of conspiracy to sexually exploit children through the international trading of child pornography, 22 counts of distribution of child pornography and five counts of sexual exploitation of children. The indictment also charges Domminich Shaw, 31, a resident of the United Kingdom; Richard Szulborski, 20, of East Texas, Penn.; Shaun Kuykendall, 32, of Summerville, S.C.; and two other individuals currently charged only as Person 1 and Person 3.

    Bostic pleaded guilty to all counts in the criminal information and indictment. Bostic faces a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison and maximum sentence of 30 years in prison for each count of sexual exploitation of children and conspiracy to commit sexual exploitation of children, 10 years in prison for each count of possession of child pornography, and 20 years in prison for each count of distribution of child pornography and conspiracy to distribute child pornography. Bostic also faces a lifetime of supervised release and up to a $250,000 fine.

    The other defendants charged in the indictment are pending trial. They are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

    This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Steven D. DeBrota and A. Brant Cook of the Southern District of Indiana and Trial Attorney Michael Grant of the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS) of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. The case was investigated by the FBI; the Indiana State Police; the Kokomo, Ind., Police Department; and the Brownsburg, Ind., Police Department."

    I just took another look at this thread and something struck me that I missed last night. The leader of an international child porn ring is 25. 25 years old!! That's quite remarkable when you think about it. When did he start abusing children? When did he start producing and trading child porn? What is Blostic's story?

    Well now, this is a sentence!! I'm still in shock that a 25 year old man, working alone, could take 5 innocent children and vault himself into world class status in the child porn arena. And they rescued two dozen children!!

    http://news.yahoo.com/indiana-man-se...231922036.html

    Indiana man sentenced to 315 years for child pornography
    November 22, 2011

    "A 25-year-old Bloomington, Indiana, man was sentenced Tuesday to 315 years in federal prison for the production and trafficking of child pornography as part of a worldwide distribution ring. David Bostic was on the receiving end of one of the longest terms ever imposed in the Southern District of Indiana...."

    and

    "...This defendant is among the most dangerous offenders ever prosecuted by this office," U. S. Attorney Joseph Hogsett said in a statement, adding that Bostic "will never be able to prey on innocent children again." Bostic pleaded guilty to the sexual exploitation of several children and participating in a worldwide child pornography distribution ring. The investigation found that Bostic also had produced explicit images of five children, all under the age of five, including one who was two months old. He then exchanged those images around the world in exchange for other child porn..."

    and

    "...This case resulted in the identification and rescue of approximately two dozen children from inside and outside the United States..."

    March 6, 2012

    "A Michigan man has been sentenced to 35 years in federal prison on charges that he produced and distributed over the Internet child pornography involving an 8-year-old girl. The U.S. Attorney's office says the girl was rescued by authorities.

Federal prosecutors say about a dozen children have been rescued from the ring...."

    this is just so disturbing. Who are these children? I dont mean specifically, but where does he get his victims? What do they mean by "rescued"? Did he run a daycare? I would really like to know how he/they in this ring were being supplied with victims.


    RIP McStays

    “What you’ll find with this investigation,” he said, “is that it is one the most graphic, brutal type of child pornography that most would have ever encountered.”

    http://www.memories1079.com/pages/10053418.php?

    Hogsett says none of the children were physically harmed.

    note by poster-I highly doubt the children were not harmed in the most graphic and brutal child porn ever seen. The youngest was two months old. No physical harm my ass.

    http://www.whas11.com/news/crimetrac....html#comments

    The state says:

    Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer described the crimes as "heinous acts of sexual abuse against the most vulnerable in our society."

    "He memorialized these unspeakable crimes by producing photographs of his abuse and distributing them to an international network of child predators. No prison term can undo the pain and suffering Mr. Bostic has caused.

    "But today's sentence sends a strong message that child sexual exploitation will be punished severely," Breuer said in a Justice Department statement.

    The defense says:

    Bostic's attorney, federal defender William Marsh, didn't immediately return an after-hours message Tuesday. He has said previously that the case wasn't the most serious child pornography case ever filed in the Southern District in part because it didn't involve molestation of a child by an adult.

    Note by poster: If the best thing you can say about your client is he didn't father the children he raped on film.... probably best to stay quiet. I CANNOT believe that quote.

    The children were not "physically harmed"????? Good Lord above. What does the attorney think rape and sexual abuse and pornographic exploitation does to an infant or toddler?

    An update on this horrid vile ring:

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/f...2#.T9DOXWBqIlc

    Feds Break International Child Porn Operation
    June 7, 2012

    "Investigators have broken an international child pornography ring that produced and distributed sexually explicit images of babies and toddlers online, federal prosecutors in Indianapolis said Thursday. Seven men have been convicted and sentenced on various charges in the case, while two who pleaded guilty are awaiting sentencing, the U.S. attorney's office said. Three were sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Indianapolis...."

    and

    "....Operation Bulldog came to light in November 2010 with the arrest of David Bostic, 26. Federal, state and local investigators raided Bostic's home in Bloomington, Ind., and found hundreds of images and videos on his computer of children between the ages of two months and 4 years engaged in sexual acts. He was subsequently convicted on 65 counts and sentenced to 315 years in prison. The arrest of Bostic led investigators to others in the group.

    Shawn Kuykendall, 32, of Summerville, S.C., was sentenced Wednesday to 25 years, while 23-year-old Javahn Algere, of Louisiana, got 12 years and 21-year-old Richard Szulborski, of Pennsylvania, was sentenced to a 15-year term.

    Sentenced earlier were Bostic; Danny L. Druck, 58, of Kentucky, eight years; Chris Reid, 37, of Saginaw, Mich., 35 years; Todd King, 41, of California, eight years.

    Nicholas King, 28, of Washington, and 22-year-old Jeremy Labrec, of Texas, have pleaded guilty and await sentencing..."
