WASHINGTON -- The nationwide search for a suspected child pornographer has ended with the arrest of a Florida woman.
25-year-old Corine Danielle Motley was arrested by HSI Pensacola special agents and Northwest Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force members in Okaloosa County late Wednesday evening, hours after HSI issued a public appeal for assistance to identify "Jane Doe."
"The quick identification of the victim and suspect in this case demonstrates the power of the press, social media and the general public in helping solve these cases," said ICE Director John Morton. "Literally hours after we asked the public for their assistance in identifying Jane Doe, a tip came in that led to her identification and arrest. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that, due to these efforts, a child is now safe and her tormentor now in custody."
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations announced the search earlier this week.
HSI's Child Exploitation Investigations Unit's Victim Identification Program obtained a "Jane Doe" arrest warrant Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia for the suspect and alerted the media.
Motley is believed to have produced at least one long-form child pornography video featuring herself engaging in explicit sexual conduct with a 4 to 6-year-old victim. HSI special agents were notified of the case by the Danish National police after they found a questionable video posted online on November 27, 2012. Police believed the video originated in the United States. HSI submitted the material to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, the national clearinghouse for child sexual exploitation material. The center determined that the victim had not yet been identified or rescued.
Motley is now being held on federal charges for child pornography production.
The case against Motley is now being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Florida.
