Kiddy-Porn Production and Distribution Ring Busted-Up in Yavapai County

A Yavapai County man was arrested last week after police say he's been producing, distributing, and possibly starring in kiddy-porn films recorded at his Rimrock home for the last nine years.

Yavapai County Sheriff's Office spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn tells New Times 29-year-old David Antonio Rodriguez was taken into custody last week at his house where police say he's spent the better part of a decade producing and distributing kiddy-porn over the Internet.

D'Evelyn says police got a tip from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that Rodriguez was peddling porn over the Web and conducted their own investigation.

The YCSO's investigation led to a search warrant for Rodriguez's home where officers hit the kiddy-porn mother load.

According to D'Evelyn, officers found numerous images and videos of child pornography in Rodriguez's Rimrock digs and after interviewing the alleged perv, Rodriguez copped to owning, creating, and distributing the porn.

Through the course of the investigation, D'Evelyn says detectives learned Rodriguez had been molesting children ages 5-14 -- with whom he was an acquaintance -- for nine years.

Rodriguez was booked at the Camp Verde Detention Center on multiple charges including 7 counts of sexual contact with a minor, 1 count engaging in 3 or more acts of child molestation, and 17 counts of commercial sexual exploitation of a minor. He remains in-custody without bond and is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow.
