Mexican man arrested for child pornography after videos pop up during camp presentation to parents

9-22-2014 Mexico:

MEXICO CITY — Prosecutors in western Mexico said Monday they have arrested a man who was promoting children's camping trips in front of a group of parents, but accidentally called up images of child pornography on his computer.

Federal prosecutors in Jalisco state said the man was using his computer to pitch his company's guided children's camping trips to a group of parents at a private school in the upscale suburb of Zapopan, on the outskirts of Guadalajara.

But instead of the presentation, videos of naked children popped up, apparently because the man opened the wrong file.

Teachers and parents immediately stopped the Sept. 8 presentation and reported him to police, who arrested the man outside the school.

His computer, a tablet, a thumb drive and a cellphone were seized as evidence.

The man has been formally charged with human trafficking, a charge that covers child pornography in Mexico, and is being held at a local prison.

The federal officials did not release his name. A statement posted on the school's web site identified the man's company as ACAMPA, and said the school had never contracted the company's services.

Phone numbers listed for the company rang unanswered on Monday. ..Source.. by The Republic
