    From above link.

    The Indictment charges that between January 2008 and June 2011, Melanson knowingly possessed computer files that contained child pornography images, induced a minor outside of the United States to produce a pornographic image, and traveled to Guatemala to engage in sexual acts with minors.

    Can't wait to bump into him in Safeway...oh wait, I can't because he is in jail. lol I hope they keep him there.
