The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) initiated a major child born bust in March 2009. The GBI arrested 18 adults and one fourteen year old boy in a porn bust that focused on computers and pornographic pictures and videos of children. The GBI seized 74 computers yesterday and expects more seizures and arrests today. The operation, known as Operation Shattered Innocence, began in December after software traced emails containing child pornography.
Criminal convictions could result in prison time of up to 20 years and fines of up to $100,000. The children depicted in the pornography ranged in age from toddlers through teenagers. The GBI sweep was statewide and revealed nude children in pornographic poses and children in sexual situations.
