Detroit Free Press

Over the past three years, more than 100 men have been prosecuted in U.S. District Court in Eastern Michigan as part of a new campaign by federal prosecutors against violators of child pornography laws. Federal prosecutors say they have been particularly aggressive because the number of “kiddie porn” collectors and makers has grown. Defense lawyers and psychologists say federal prosecutors are winning the same harsh punishments for offenders who only look at child porn as they do for actual molesters. Jan. 7, www.freep.com.
