"The Military’s Child Porn Problem


National Security & Child Porn
America has a child porn crisis. The disturbing number of federal and state employees arrested for child porn charges makes this a national security issue.
This article reviews military child porn arrests. Federal law enforcement, as well as state and local government employees, including police, will be considered in my next articles.

Bryon Bender, of The Boston Globe, first reported, in 2011, that up to 5,200 Pentagon employees, many with top clearances, were downloading child porn on Pentagon computers. Many were using their .mil email accounts and paying with credit cards in their own names. This brazenness indicates a culture that tolerates, perhaps even encourages, use of child porn on America’s most sensitive computer networks.
What’s worse is, there were almost no prosecutions. Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) fought to expose the Pentagon’s refusal to prosecute. The Pentagon closed the investigation, claiming it wasn’t “a priority.”
Denial. Nothing to see here. Move along please. And everyone did.
In July 2012 Bloomberg News reported that the US Missile Defense Agency issued a memo reminding staff not to download porn at work. The memo says, “These actions are not only unprofessional, they reflect time taken away from designated duties, are in clear violation of federal and DOD and regulations, consume network resources and can compromise the security of the network.”
You don’t say.
When America’s most elite national security professionals, responsible for our missile defense system, need to be told not to download porn, very likely including child porn, on the Department of Defense networks, America has a problem.
How Bad Is It?
Okay… so just how bad is it?
It’s bad. First, let me share a few arrests that set my hair on fire:
• Former Undersecretary of the Navy, 70 year old James Daniel Howard, arrested on child porn possession and reproduction charges in 2013. Howard had served as special assistant to President Ronald Reagan. He plead guilty to ten child porn counts and served only seven months in jail;
• Joint Strike Fighter Program Navy officer, Bruce Babchyck, arrested in 2014 for downloading “hundreds of gigabytes” of young girls and bestiality on government computers. He received a one year sentence; and
• Army prosecutor and judge advocate, Daniel Wollverton, father of two, convicted in 2011 for infant sodomy and possession of over 30,000 images and 1,000 videos of brutal child sex abuse including that of a three month old infant.
Take a moment to let all this sink in. Anal rape of a baby. This man held a position of significant responsibility and power within our armed forces. Hundreds of gigabytes of child porn downloaded onto Navy computers by a man in our Joint Strike Fighter program? An Under Secretary of the Navy?
Really? Yes, really.
These are not insignificant positions in our national security infrastructure.
And these are only a few of the reported cases out of what appears to be thousands. In fact, it’s difficult to pick the worst. As I reviewed the material I kept thinking, with every new media report, surely this is as bad as it gets.
Atomic Energy Detection System
Inevitably, the next report was more concerning.
Such as, the arrest of America’s chief scientist responsible for monitoring global nuclear activity at Patrick Air Force Base’s Technical Applications Center which operates our Atomic Energy Detection System.
In May 2013, 71 year old David O’Brien was arrested and charged with a preliminary ten counts of child porn possession and distribution. Media reports said investigators found child porn on multiple home computers. It is not clear how much child porn O’Brien had, what kind, if any was on his work computers or if he was even fired from his position. There has been no public news since his original arrest.
I contacted the law enforcement agency who had made the arrest, Brevard County Sheriff’s Office in Florida. Lt. Brandon Lanza responded immediately saying “Unfortunately this case is still active and pending prosecution. Under Florida State Statue 119.071(2)C we will not release any criminal investigate information at this time.”
Are you comfortable knowing the man who is monitoring nuclear activity around the world is getting off to the rape of children? Do you feel safe knowing America’s Atomic Energy Detection System may well have been exposed to organized crime that operates child porn production and distribution?
When I read about Dr. O’Brien’s crimes against children, which are also crimes against America, I feel outraged and betrayed by my government.
What about you?
Scale and Seriousness of the Crisis
Well okay. So a few guys were caught using child porn. It’s just a few rotten apples. That’s not a crisis or a national security threat. Right?
Rotten apples, particularly at the top, establish permissible conduct for the entire workplace. This culture permeates — compromising our national security on many levels from our computer systems and classified information, to the safety and well-being of innocent government employees simply trying to do their jobs.
Does anyone really think an Army prosecutor/judge advocate with 30,000 videos/image of child rape is going to hold his own colleagues accountable for adult sexual assault among the military ranks? Is the scientist monitoring nuclear activity vulnerable to blackmail that could compromise America’s security?
The answers seem obvious.
Remember, child molesters work together in networks. “Molesters working as a team… can cover up each other’s tracks and use their connections to outwit the police.”
By virtue of their positions government pedophiles have a unique ability, civilians do not have, to hide their crimes and avoid prosecution. When those involved in child porn are law enforcement themselves, it is easy to understand why this is a problem.
It appears pedophiles are highly networked through-out our military forces and government agencies; protecting and helping each other gain continual access to new videos and images of abused children.
That is a problem for us all.
Data Problems and Search Method
As with other government agencies, the data available on child porn arrests in the military is incomplete and difficult to gather. Defense Department officials say child porn arrests and conviction are not “tracked” by the military and so it is “difficult to determine how widespread the problem might be.”
Denial. Nothing to see here. Move along please.
But some information is available. Regarding child porn investigations, theDepartment of Defense Computer Forensics Laboratory (DCFL) Director, in 2004, Lt. Col. Zatyko, said “We always have cases in the queue… and more work than we can handle.” In 2012 DCFL conducted 391 forensic child porn exams. As of November 2012 the Army tried fifty soldiers on child porn charges with forty-five convictions. In 2011 thirty-seven Army soldiers were convicted on child porn charges. The Air Force had eleven child porn convictions in 2012 and sixteen in 2011. However, none of this information includes service members tried in civilian courts.
In 2013 the Navy pledged to be transparent regarding sexual assault issues and now provides public monthly courts-martial verdicts. The following reports were noted in November and December 2013: (1) Navy Aviation Electronics Tech-Petty Officer First Class Richard Lesley was found guilty of child porn possession. He was sentenced to a bad conduct discharge and confinement for 18 months; (2) Navy Quartermaster Jason J. Carchio plead guilty to using a government computer to solicit, distribute and possess child porn. He received a dishonorable discharge and 30 month confinement; and (3) Missile Technician Nathaniel A. Camacho plead guilty to attempting to contribute to the delinquency of a minor. He was sentenced to thirty days.
The Army Times has made available cases of child abuse in the military; which has, reportedly, increased by forty percent from 2010 to 2012. In all four branches, Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, from 2011–2012 there were 12,881 cases of child abuse, 753 of these included sexual assaults and 67 children were murdered. The Army investigated 30,000 cases of child abuse from 2003–2012 including 118 child deaths. Reported child abuse increased by twenty-five percent in the Air Force from 2008–2012. From 2011–2012 The Marine Corps reported 1,591 confirmed cases of child abuse. The Navy reported 3,336 cases of reported child abuse from 2009 to 2012.
Of this information, there seemed to be no indication of child porn produced, downloaded and distributed related to the child sex abuse. Child abuse, child sex abuse and child porn investigations do not appear to be coordinated. In 2013, the Department of Defense (DOD) did create theDepartment of Defense Prevention and Coordinated Community Response to Child Abuse and Neglect and Domestic Violence Working Group. The group is tasked with a public review of the military’s child abuse and domestic violence crisis. It is not clear that child porn is included in this review.
Because the military is not publishing comprehensive data on child porn arrests, I conducted searches, using Twitter and Google, of mainstream media reports. When I could easily locate original court documents, I supplemented the media reports; however, often the court documents are sealed or otherwise not easily accessible. I also supplemented my standard Twitter/Google searches with searches in Stars and Stripes. As of 3 November 2014 a search in Stars and Stripes’ search box for child porn turned up 142 articles of military personnel , from all branches, arrested for child porn use. I do not list all 136 reported arrests here.
The reports I share here are, by no means, a comprehensive account of military child porn arrests. These are, simply, what appears to be a very small representative sample. A snap-shot in time. They do; however, provide a sense of the scope and scale of child porn use within our military; one that represents a serious national security issue for us all.
Infant and Toddler Porn Arrests
As I gathered the news reports, over and over, arrests referenced infants and toddlers. When the age of the children was indicated, and it often is not, I organized reports that included the abuse of children four years or younger in this section.
• Decorated Navy Veteran, 40 year old Michael Jachim, plead guilty to three counts of aggravated child porn. He had 44,000 videos/images with “10,000 graphic images depicted children who were an average age of 5. Several images and videos showed children bound by the hands and feet and wearing hoods or masks.” Prosecutors said, “This isn’t Playboy magazine. These are infants and toddlers being brutally raped.” Many of three and four year old children “in bondage positions with their hands and feet tied” with hoods or masks covering the heads and faces with children “screaming for their mommy as they were being sexually abused.” In the Navy he received a Good Conduct Medal, national defense service medal, a sea service deployment ribbon and a Navy commendation medal. He was sentenced to four years.
• Army Sergeant, 25 year old Kimberly Epperson, a Signals Intelligence Analyst with the 401st Military Intelligence Company stationed at Fort Sam in Texas, was sentenced in 2013 to twenty-eight years for molesting her own three year old son. She sent videos and live-stream of the abuse to a former boyfriend, Army Sergeant Wade Allen Perkins a Geospatial Intelligence Imagery Analyst, most recently with 306th Military Intelligence Battalion. He was also sentenced. Sergeant Perkins requested that Sergeant Kimberly Epperson include her infant son in their sex life and she complied. Epperson was also pregnant with Perkins’ daughter at the time.
• Air Force Staff Sergeant, 29 year old Daniel Freiwald, married father of two children formerly with the 83rd Fighter Weapons Squadron, was sentenced to eight years for receiving, distributing and possessing videos/images of child sex abuse, including infants and toddlers, on his computer at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida. He later died, reported as suicide, in prison.
• 44 year old William Gazafi an Air Force officer at Andrews Air Force base, was indicted on six counts of sexually exploiting a minor to produce child porn. Gazafi had been in an incest online chat rooms and bragged to an undercover cop that he drugged and molested young children including infants. Gazafi then sent images to the undercover officer, three of which he claimed to have produced. The subsequent seizure of his electronics revealed videos/images that Gazafi produced including a five months baby and drugged children sexually abused while bound and handcuffed.
• Air Force Cassidy Harwell, a 28 year old airman from Ellsworth Air Force Base, was sentenced to five years for child porn possession. He had more than 300 videos of child sex abuse including children as young as three years old.
• Army West Point Military Academy Cadet Ricky Patrick Hester was arrested for child porn possession and distribution of young boys. Hester had sent out requests on his Yahoo email account saying, “I am in to 4–10 year olds hardcore with sound.” His case was continued by the courts with no new hearing date set at this time. I contacted the local media outlet,NewsCenter16, reporting on Hester’s case. They responded saying, “Hester was placed on home detention with electronic monitoring on December 20th [2013] after paying bail. His case was continued to a later date on the day of our January article you linked. There are currently no scheduled future court dates for him in the federal court system. When a trial is scheduled, or if a Plea Agreement is made in the case, we will report that information.”
• Marine Officer, 26 year old Jonathan Adleta, was sentenced to two life terms for the sex abuse of his infant children, ages one-four, with his wife, Sarah Adleta, who was sentenced to 54 years for child porn production of her children. Jonathan Adleta had made “daddy-daughter sex” part of their pre-nuptial agreement. When Sarah Adelta, later, divorced Johnathan, she continued to sexually abuse her children on live-stream Skype videos at his request. He distributed this abuse on child porn networks. He also sexually abused his girlfriend’s Samantha Bryant’s four year old daughter. Bryant participated in the abuse of her own four year old daughter and filmed this abuse. Adleta had served two tours with the Marine Corps in Afghanistan.
• Tech Sergeant Erik Dean Rabes, a 44 year old Air Force Computer Security Specialist who had been assigned to the US Strategic Command, a joint service unit that oversees the nation’s nuclear arsenal and is responsible for defending American interests in space, was sentenced to ten years for child porn production. The military refused to confirm if Rabes had used military computers. He had more than 30,000 child sex abuse videos/images. Rabes’ former wife had operated a day-care facility from their residence in Colorado Springs. Unknown to his wife, Rabes had been sexually abusing children, as young as four years old, at the day care and filming and distributing that abuse.
• Senior Airman Czachery Rike, a 30 year old Peterson Air Force Base airman, plead guilty to child porn distribution that included children as young as four years old. He was also charged with forcible sodomy against an adult without consent. Over a period of a few months he had collected over 400 images of child sex abuse.
• Air Force Master Sergeant, 49 year old Charles Caley, was sentenced to fifteen years for paying to watch the sexual abuse of a four year old girl from a webcam at Aviano Air Force Base in Italy. Caley had an online relationship with a mother in Georgia (he was also from Georgia) and discussed a shared interest in incestual sexual abuse of children. He paid the mother to watch the sex abuse of her child and two other girls. He possessed hundreds of videos/images of child sex abuse. Although he was sentenced to fifteen years by a federal judge, after that sentencing the Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals reduced his original Air Force sentence from sixteen months to four months. He then he went onto to serve his federal sentence.
• Marine Captain Joshua Taylor, a 28 year old Marine pilot who flew Super Stallion Helicopters, had more than 5,000 videos/images of child sex abuse including children as young as four years old.
Child Porn Arrests

Riley said he “looking for other pervs in the area” and that he had sexually abused the six year old daughter of a former girlfriend. Riley, himself, a married father of a six year old girl. He said he never abuses his own daughter. The undercover officer sent Riley a picture of a child and claimed it was his daughter. Riley said: “What is the purpose of showing me pics of your daughter? Do you want to share her? … no pressure from me. Just curious.” Riley then discussed arrangement to have sex with the child. Riley was at Fort McNair in Washington DC enrolled in a National Defense University course at the time.

His ten year old son said his father had tied him to a chair and forced him to watch as he had intercourse with a girlfriend. A Virginia judge attempted to jail the mother for reporting the Navy Lt. father to child protection when her daughter reported the abuse. The family court judge said the mother was trying to “derail the officer’s career.” After a detailed article, published by Bill Sizemore, of The Virginian-PilotThe Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) promised, in December 2013, to look into why no criminal investigation had been opened four years ago. According to Bill Sizemore, as of 4 November 2014, the Navy continues to employ this man, stationed in California. A criminal investigation has been opened as a result of Sizemore’s article. NCIS responded, within minutes, to my request for information and confirmed, on 4 November 2014, “We did open a formal investigation. We conducted multiple interviews with family members and others and NCIS continues to work with Navy RLSO about this case. It is still open because the Command has yet to officially prefer or decline charges.” The Navy has promoted the Lt. twice since the known sex abuse of his own children.

Why is Child Porn Allowed on Military Computers?
The military has the technical capacity to block child porn from the work place. Yet, no branch of the military, and no government agency, has done so. Why?
The blocking programs are an easy technical fix. Iceland, for example, has been considering a nation-wide block on all porn; adult and child. TheUnited Kingdom has also been discussing instituting country-wide blocks on child porn and a system where internet service provider must provide an active opt-in/opt-out system to adult porn. A library in Canada blocked all child porn.
If a library in Canada can block child from their computers, surely the Pentagon, the Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine Corps can block child porn on their computer networks?
Let’s be very clear. This is a choice.
The military can opt-out of allowing access to child porn on government computers at any point, yet, it appears, the military is choosing child porn over our national security.
This should outrage us all.
Call your US Senator and Raise Holy Hell
America now produces an estimated half of the world’s child porn. How many children are being destroyed to feed that consumption?
Half of the global internet servers that host child sexual abuse are located in the United States. Why has the government allowed these servers to remain in operation?
The technical capacity to block child porn exists. Why does government allow child porn to be downloaded on military computers, and government agencies, compromising our national security?
These are the facts. And those are my questions.
Yet, unanswered.
What is our government doing about this crisis? Next to nothing. Not even with their own government agencies and employees responsible for our most sensitive areas of national security.
What will you do?
I hope you will contact your US Senator and ask: what are you doing about America’s child porn crisis?
I hope you will raise holy hell.
