    MO - James Edwards for sex abuse, child porn, Kansas City, 2009

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. A 60-year-old man plied young girls with ice cream and soda spiked with sedatives and made seminude videos of them that he stored in a computer file named "Consuming the Date Rape Drug," authorities said.

    James Phillip Edwards of Kansas City was charged Wednesday with one count each of advertising child pornography over the Internet, attempted distribution of child pornography over the Internet and possession of child pornography. He was ordered held without bond.

    Edwards' attorney, Travis Poindexter, did not immediately respond to a phone message Thursday seeking comment. A message left on Edwards' home phone was not immediately returned.

    Don Ledford, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office for the Western District of Missouri, said Thursday that Edwards might face additional charges and that the investigation was ongoing.

    Authorities began investigating Edwards in May for possession of child pornography on his home computer, according to court records...............

    The ******* claims HE doesnt believe what he did was wrong(although the fact he was drugging CHILDREN & keeping this a secret shows he knows it is!)! The fact hes so unrepentant should mean,imo,an even stiffer sentence!!! Im annoyed they say the girls (ranging in age from 6-12) are "safe" BUT will not say how he had access to them (on multiple occasions I assume)-that bothers me.I also am curious as to if they are investigating prior acts as at age 60(?)I dont think this is his first foray into depravity(spitting on an unconscious CHILDS face???WTF??)
    The saints are the sinners who keep trying...

    "(Edwards') view is that society places arbitrary lines (as in age restrictions) around sexual conduct, with which he doesn't agree," assistant U.S. Attorney Katharine Fincham said. "By his own admission, the defendant has been a danger to the community, unchecked, for years."

    So, he thinks drugging grown women and filming them naked wouldn't be considered wrong??? Hope he goes away for good.

    Just because you want to be with somebody does not mean they will take care of your children.

    That belief system is very NAMBLAish. I wouldn't be surprised if he were a card-carrying member.

    Of course. Age restrictions are arbitrary. I wonder at what age he thinks a woman would say, "Sure. Drug me, spit on me, take pictures of my privates." This man is disgusting.

    Wow. How do you rehabilitate something like that? I don't see any scenario where a guy like this should ever taste freedom again.

    Well, this is of concern. I'd almost forgotten about Mr. Edwards. The Mohler case, just two weeks later kind of eclipsed this one. Some new information has come out and I'm sure worried that Mr. Edwards might be somehow connected with several other arrests in the Kansas City area. We've had quite a rash of arrests and indictments in the Kansas City, Independence, Blue Springs. Just Hmmmmm. For those who've followed the Mohler case, you know we've discussed the possibility of "date rape drugs" ie GHB. Very very scary. The article goes on to say that it has not been released how Mr. Edwards accessed the children. We'll need to check into that.

    Man faces more child pornography charges

    "A south Kansas City man jailed since October on child pornography charges is facing new allegations that he drugged and abused multiple children.

    James Phillip Edwards was charged Wednesday in a 21-count indictment alleging that between 2001 and 2005, he used 13 children to produce or attempt to produce child pornography. The indictment alleges he drugged five of the victims with sleeping pills to facilitate the abuse.

    Edwards, 60, concealed the drugs in ice cream and soda, previously filed court documents allege. Edwards then abused the victims and videotaped the abuse, the documents allege....."

    Missouri man guilty of lacing ice cream, molesting girls

    "A Missouri man who lured children to his home by hosting ice cream-eating contests was found guilty on Wednesday of drugging and sexually molesting more than a dozen young girls -- and then posting videos of the assaults on the Internet.

    James Phillip Edwards, 61, of Kansas City pleaded no contest in federal court to 12 counts of producing child pornography, one count of attempting to produce child pornography, and five counts of distributing a controlled substance to the victims without their knowledge in order to facilitate a crime of violence...."

    and

    "....Edwards used ice cream and soft drinks laced with prescription sleep aids to drug 13 victims, all girls aged 6 to 13, in the basement of his southside home between 2001 and 2005. Edwards then allegedly molested his unconscious victims and used the webcam on his computer to videotape the assaults...."

    James Phillip Edwards guilty of drugging 13 children with laced ice cream and molesting them

    ---
    Edwards was also a bit of an author. He wrote documents titled "How to Molest Young Girls," giving specific dosage amounts for drugging children. Another document is called "Pedo Handbook," which includes a section called "Drugging Children and Preteens."

    There's a youtube video which shows Edwards' house. I don't want to try to imbed it so just search for:

    "Prosecutors: Man Drugged Girls With Ice Cream"

    Looking at photos of Edwards, I'd be shocked if he didn't play Santa at one point. FWIW, his photo doesn't seem in the least bit creepy to me. That, in itself, is unnerving.

    Being that we know that the Mohler girls most likely were drugged in some fashion, due to the charges, one has to wonder if this man might have crossed paths with any of the Mohler men. They all live in same general area.

    From wfgodot's link:

    "....Edwards allegedly told investigators that he didn't see anything wrong with what he did, and in a videotaped statement, he admitted giving the sedative to "multiple minor girls" between the ages of 6 and 12. "His view is that society places arbitrary lines (as in age restrictions) around sexual conduct, with which he doesn't agree...."

    Well, OK then, it's pretty clear to me that if one refuses to follow society's rules, one is out of the pool.

    I'm assuming that this man is not connected with Philip Greaves who wrote the infamous "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure" which was only pulled by Amazon after threat of a major boycott? I wouldn't be shocked to learn that knew each other...like minds and all.

    Has anyone been able to determine just what Edwards did prior to his arrest, besides assaulting children. His name is so common, he's hard to sleuth. I'm really wondering how he accessed these children--family, neighbors, volunteer work, church?

    This is giving me a migraine.

    How? How did these kids go home and not seem drugged? I am not blaming anyone other than this demented, vile, nutter, but wouldn't these kids be woozy?

    Izzy I will try and find out what he did for a living or didn't do, but my head hurts too much right now.
