UPDATE 12-15-10: It all comes down to this

In the next few days, the Senate is planning to vote on an “omnibus spending bill.” Contained in that bill is $60 million in desperately-needed child rescue funding that PROTECT fought for all during 2010.

If the omnibus fails, state and local law enforcement resources for fighting child exploitation will be slashed in half. Thousands of children will be left in the hands of sexual predators, simply because the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Forces didn’t have the people to go rescue them… even though they know where they are.

That’s why we need you to call these Senators, who we believe might help us…

Pediatrician Pleads Guilty to Possessing Child Sexual Abuse Images

Investigators found that Phillip T. Nowicki, of Columbus, Ohio area pediatrician had used a computer at Columbus hospital where he worked to subscribe to an illegal international child sexual abuse image website that gave him access to thousands of images and videos of child pornography. According to The Cypress Times this pediatrican pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to one count of possession of child pornography immediately following an investigation by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Homeland Security (HSI). At his hearing an HSI agent testified that an illegal international child porn website identified Nowicki as a subscriber to the website. “If people know they can make money trafficking images of children being sexually exploited, that puts all children at risk,” said U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio Carter M. Stewart. “Prosecuting those who jeopardize the safety and well-being of children will continue to be a priority for the office.”
ICE encourages people to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free hoteline at 1-866-DHS-2ICE. Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, an Operation Predator partner, at 800-843-5678.

A Letter to the Editor of Time Magazine

Recently Time.com published an article entitled, ” Study: Making Pornography More Accessible May Curb Child Abuse.” We responded:

Dear Ms. Park and Time Editors,

The Innocent Justice Foundation exists to educate the public on the true nature and scope of child pornography, and thereby correct misperceptions within the US population that using child pornography is a victimless crime, similar to viewing adult pornography, as might be implied by the article published today on Time.com entitled, “Study: Making Child Pornography More Accessible May Curb Child Abuse.” I would respectfully argue that nothing could be farther than the truth, and that possessors are extremely dangerous to children.

Doug Heuer, superintendent of Cleveland Heights-University Heights schools says “We are relieved that the justice system worked and that this criminal will never again be allowed in our community or have the opportunity to work with children again.” The forensic evidence uncovered by Ohio’s ICAC Task Forces facilitated this child predator’s sentencing. According to the Sun News, Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold found Christopher Thomas, former middle school teacher, guilty of one count of sexual battery, 22 counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material, seven counts of importuning (sending emails or texts to ask someone to perform a sexual act), and six counts of endangering children and one count of possessing criminal tools.
