FL: Department of Juvenile Justice refuses to accept 15-year-old charged with possession of child pornography

[palmcoastobserver.com]

In 2018 under the direction of Flagler Sheriff Rick Staly, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office began participating with the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The ICAC Task Force consists of state and local law enforcement who are dedicated to developing effective responses to the online enticement of children by sexual predators, child exploitation, and child obscenity and pornography cases

Lashbrook identified a residence in Daytona North that was actively engaging in the manufacturing and distribution of child pornography. On Jan. 23, the FCSO Major Case Unit, as well as the Sex Offender Detective and Cybercrimes Detective, served a search warrant on the residence.

A 15-year-old boy is being charged with five counts of possession of child pornography and one count of manufacturing child pornography. He was taken into custody at his home and processed at the Flagler County Jail.

“Sex Offenders and deviants in this area who think they’re going to operate with impunity have got another thing coming,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. …

 

The suspect was turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Daytona Beach, who refused to accept him. He was then released to the custody of his guardians.

“He was then released to the custody of his guardians.”. That’s it? Story just ends.
So, I guess that means all charges are dropped and the arrest record will be sealed, rght?

Oh, that’s right, it’s Florida! The State is probably moving to have him civilly committed as an SVP!! (Not laughing.😒)

Have to wonder if he was the “victim” in this at his own hands…i.e. taking photos of himself and then keeping them.

Wow! There are adults in Florida prisons doing life for mere possession of child pornography because of some mandatory minimum law they had–don’t know if they still have that law for possession. Anyways I find it crazy that Floriduh officials believe 12 year old kids are smart enough to know the consequences of murder (yes, Florida gave a 12 year old a murder conviction for roughousing his sister to death) but a 15 to year old is too dumb to know the consequences of producing child porn, so we wont charge him but instead release him to his guardians.

Some of his videos showed adult men engaging with sex acts with 2 year olds. He’s not a guy who was arrested for “sexting” pictures of himself. Don’t have a lot of sympathy for him.

@ Jonathan: I don’t care what he had videos of …. he’s only 15. IMHO, the authorities should be a helluva lot more concerned with where the hell a 15-yr old got such videos.

@ David:

The authorities may very well had sent it to him.

The state of Florida doesn’t use that “only 15” defense for teen murderers, robberers and many other offenses. Kids often get charged as adults. I would just ask that there be consistency in their laws.
