CHILD PORN RING
Louisiana man charged in alleged child pornography ring
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, February 20, 2014 7:32 PM EST
An Abita Springs man has been charged with operating a pair of child pornography websites that offered tutorials to 27,000 followers on coaxing young boys into producing sexually explicit videos.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says the case against Johnson has led to 25 arrests.
The Times-Picayune reports Johnson's case was unsealed this week, along with a superseding indictment that suggests he might be cooperating with prosecutors. He faces arraignment Monday.
Johnson's federal public defender, Samuel Scillitani, could not be reached for comment Thursday.
