WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Three men from our area are among 24 people arrested in a statewide child porn crackdown called Operation Spyglass.

They include Bruce Wayne Lorette, 32, who the SBI arrested October 20 in Brunswick County on ten counts of Third Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor (Possession of Child Pornography).

Daniel Joseph Nilsson (photo, above left), 32, of Surf City was arrested on August 17 and charged with six counts of Second Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor (Distribution of Child Pornography). Nilsson is a USMC Captain.

Ivey Floyd Cook (photo, above right), 48, has been in the New Hanover County jail since October 18 under $50,000 bond. He faces three counts of Second Degree Exploitation of a Minor (Distribution of Child Pornography).

Attorney General Roy Cooper and the state's three federal prosecutors say advances in Internet investigation technology are allowing them to find and arrest child pornography traffickers without anyone calling in tips.

Cooper says investigators serving search warrants to seize computers found hundreds of thousands of illegal photos and videos of abused children, some as young as three.

Cooper says child porn cases require lots of time and effort to track and prosecute, but technology is making the hunt easier.

They will plead. Get a "suspended sentence" and walk. Half of all sexual offenders get dsisability checks.

Broken

Our Justice system is so broken. I wish someone could come up with a way to get it straightened out. Some criminals need to go directly to the needle. . right then. Not 20 years later. I can't imagine how some defense attorneys sleep at night. How in the name of God can they excuse what they do for a living? And this applies to certain judges, too. It's so corrupt.

prisoners take quick care of men who violate children. I hope all these guys get to prison ASAP. I'll offer to drive them there.

Sorry to burst your bubble,

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the 5 years I was with the department of corrections, never once did a pedophile/chester get his butt handed to him for that reason alone. Back in the days, yes, but doc made it clear that street charges could/would be taken out against those that target these perverts.

Its disgusting when these perverts watch tv and their eyes light up when they see a child. Or some of them would turn the channels to more kid-like shows...nasty. It used to be on the roster "amy j molester" but that was removed in case another inmate saw it. And if you told another inmate, inmate so and so is a pervert, you could/would lose your job. I had a Lt. tell me it was a hate crime to beat up a pervert for the purpose of being a pervert...i left shortly after that. Because to me, once that gavel hits and they are guilty...they should be taken out back and shot. They will never change, ever! And if it's a first offense, they might get 6 months...hell even if its a 10th offense. And the saddest thing is, they can't change. It's like if you prefer blonde hair and blue eyes, that's what you prefer. In 5 years, I met hundreds of them...and they never, ever change

pigs

Why are both these pervs grinning? Is this funny to them? Disgusting perverted pigs.

What they lust after

Hopefully their dance cards will be full at the prison dance.
