Those arrested include a Sampson County teacher, a Robeson County firefighter, an active duty Marine captain and a Wake County television editor with The Learning Channel, the attorney general's office reported.

    I fully understand that LE often has to hold back names as the release could endanger the investigation. It sounds like each of these guys was kind of a case unto himself. I'm guessing that one didn't lead to the other. LE just followed the trail to each arrestee. I really appreciate having the names, though, for the communities.

    Hopefully there will be hard time for these guys. Waaaaay to many times we put them away for small time, or not at all, a slap on the wrist. I hope that they are fully prosecuted. I too am glad to see the names. I thought I was gonna loose my lunch when I saw that one was a teacher

    'Kate Plus 8' editor arrested for child porn

    "Seriously creepy. 56-year-old William Blankinship, a TV editor who worked on TLC's 'Jon and Kate Plus 8' and other family-oriented reality shows, was arrested Oct. 21 on child porn-related charges, documents obtained by RadarOnline confirm.

    Blankinship has been charged with 10 counts of sex exploit of a minor, meaning he possessed photos and/or video of a minor engaged in sexual activity. A subcontractor for Figure 8 Films, Blankenship edited such TLC shows as the Gosselin-family smash "Jon and Kate Plus 8," its spinoff "Kate Plus 8," "17 Kids and Counting" and "Table for 12...."
