Federal agents watched in horror as an unknown male in an internet photo appealed for stomach-churning advice – how to rape the child beside him. The girl was in pajamas and the man appeared intent on abusing her sometime soon. Homeland Security agents knew they were in a race against time to save the girl. They conducted a raid; arresting the suspect before the exploitation could escalate to the point of rape. “When we went in that morning, [the 11-year-old girl] was still wearing those same pajamas as depicted in the images.”
An ICE spokeswoman said the girl is now safe and living with her parents. She added the suspect turned out to also be a minor –16 years old — who pleaded guilty and was sentenced to serve 48 months in a juvenile facility.
