According to<a href="https://www.local10.com/news/florida/miami-dade/9-men-teen-arrested-this-year-in-child-porn-bust-in-miami-dade-county"> local ABC affiliate Channel 10 </a>in Miami-Dade, Florida, the Miami-Dade Police Department's Special Victims Bureau, the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit, special agents from Homeland Security Investigations, detectives from the City of Miami Police Department, and investigators from the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office all worked together in cooperation for six months to bring down the child pornographic distribution ring, <i>which depicted infant children as young as nine-months-old being sexually exploited in order to produce and distribute images and videos of prepubescent children engaged in forced sexual abuse for profit.
Over the course of the six-month investigation, law enforcement officers were able to infiltrate the network of child pornographic distribution, having first taken a 14-year-old into custody in January, which led to Detectives further investigating the allegations of a major transmission network.
The fourteen-year-old child, who has turned fifteen-years-old since his initial arrest, assisted authorities in the identification of nine other adults involved in the illicit child pornographic distribution ring, which concluded this week after the execution of dozens of search warrants, subpoenas, and preservation letters.

Each of the men named above are now facing multiple felony charges, including sexual performance by a child; possession/transmission of material harmful to minors; lewd and lascivious battery on a child; distribution of obscene to a minor; attempted sexual activity with a specified minor; using prohibited computer services; and promoting the sexual performance of a child.
Despite the arrests, the Miami-Dade Police Department believes that there could be countless unidentified victims around the state, and possibly around the nation.
<i>The scourge of child pornographic distribution continues to be eliminated under the Trump Administration, which has result in over 9000 arrests related to human and child-sex trafficking, child molestation, or child pornography since President Trump's inauguration in January of 2017, setting records in the widespread victories against the rampant pedophilia in America.</i>
"We need to as adults and responsible community members; we need to take this situation very serious," Miami-Dade Police Det. Alvaro Zabaleta said. "Simply because of the fact that somebody's watching child pornography people may think that's 'well they're just watching it, they're not doing anything wrong.' What they're watching is behind every video and behind every photo, there's a victim, and that's what we need to strive to stop."

The suspects range in age from 15 to 67-years-old in this case, showcasing that the levels of perverse criminal activity which surround pedophilia could be anywhere in this nation.
