At a press conference in Los Angeles this morning federal agents laid out some of the details of “Operation Sunflower” targeting child pornographers. Part of the case involved the announce ment of a federal criminal complaint filed against two people known only as John and Jane Doe. The couple are allegedly involved in the production of child pornography.

This from a U.S. Justice Department press release:

Seeking leads in an unsolved child sexual exploitation case, federal authorities today announced the filing of a federal criminal complaint against two individuals – known only as “John Doe” and “Jane Doe” – who are charged with producing child pornography.
In relation to the filing of the case against the unidentified man and woman, authorities today released photographs connected to the investigation, which has determined that the child pornography images were likely produced in the Los Angeles area. Authorities hope the photos will prompt members of the public to provide information that will lead to arrests in this case.
The criminal complaint, which was filed Monday, involves a widely circulated series of child pornography images which authorities believe were taken about 11 years ago in the San Fernando Valley. Despite their investigative efforts, special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) have been unable to determine the identities of the defendants. While the girl being sexually abused in the images is now likely an adult, authorities continue to pursue the case for several reasons, including bringing the defendants to justice and preventing the abuse of additional victims.
“We need the public’s help in identifying the man and woman responsible for molesting this young girl, whose victimization has continued with the trading of these images by those who collect child pornography,” said United States Attorney André Birotte Jr. “The Justice Department is deeply committed to protecting all of our children by investigating and prosecuting these types of child exploitation crimes.”
