US Attorney Reports Long Island Man Arrested For Child Porn Offences

LAWFUEL – Legal Newswire – MICHAEL J. GARCIA, the United States Attorney for the
Southern District of New York, announced that CARL LIEDKE, of
Seaford, Long Island, New York, was arrested last night on
charges that he attempted to entice a minor to engage in sexual
activity and distributed child pornography. He was presented
today before United States Magistrate Judge MARK D. FOX in White
Plains federal court, and was remanded to custody pending a
detention hearing scheduled for May 12, 2008. According to the
Complaint:

Beginning earlier this year LIEDKE made contact, via a
chatroom called “I Love Older Men,” with what he believed to be
two different 15-year-old girls. The “girls” were actually an
undercover detective with the Westchester County Police. LIEDKE
engaged in a series of conversations, both electronically and by
telephone, with the first “girl,” during which he: 1) sent
pictures of himself; 2) sent sexually explicit pictures of
underage girls; and 3) discussed his desire to have sex with the
“girl” at his home, at a hotel near her residence, on a boat or
while traveling. LIEDKE sent the first “girl” more than 25
images containing child pornography. LIEDKE also had electronic
discussions with the second “girl” about her coming to his
residence for sex.

If convicted, LIEDKE faces a maximum sentence of life
in prison and a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison
on the attempted child enticement charge, and a maximum sentence
of 20 years in prison and a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years
in prison on the child pornography charge.
Mr. GARCIA praised the efforts of the Westchester
County Police Department and the Federal Bureau of
Investigation’s Violent Crimes Task Force in connection with this
investigation.

Assistant United States Attorney ANNA M. SKOTKO is in
charge of the prosecution.
The charges contained in the Complaint are merely
accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and
until proven guilty.
