CHICAGO — Participants in an international Internet chat room transmitted live visuals of child molestation and traded thousands of pictures of child pornography, federal authorities said Wednesday in announcing charges against 27 people.
U.S. and international authorities have charged 27 people who took part in the Kiddypics & Kiddyvids chat room. The youngest child seen in pictures or video was less than 18 months old, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said in announcing the results of the 10-month investigation.
The defendants include Brian A. Annoreno of suburban Chicago, who prosecutors say molested an infant and transmitted it live to a viewer in the Canadian city of Edmonton. Annoreno was in federal custody, and it was unclear if had an attorney.
