Description

A joint investigative effort by WMAQ-TV Chicago and WTVJ-TV Miami uncovered "child erotica," a new industry exploiting young girls that spans several states. The two stations were able to combine their investigative sources and perform more research as well as undercover and surveillance work across the country. As a result of their combined work a convicted child sex offender who was recruiting young girls is being investigated by the Justice Department, one of the largest child erotica sites on the internet shut itself down, and representatives from Illinois and Florida asked the Attorney General to shut down the child erotica industry and review current law that deals with the area.
