Police: Sex Offender Used MySpace To Trade Kid Porn


From 2007:

A registered sex offender from Granite City who allegedly used the website MySpace to trade child pornography was charged Friday with 26 crimes related to child pornography and sexual abuse of a child.

The charges stem from subpoenas issued this year by 31 state attorneys general in an investigation into registered sex offenders with profiles on MySpace, a social networking site popular among teens. The charges against Carl Courtright, 35, are the first child pornography charges to arise from these subpoenas, according to the office of Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan.

Investigators from the office's High Tech Crimes bureau used information from MySpace to determine that Courtright, 35, had been trading child pornography online. Last month, authorities got a search warrant and seized his computer.
