This case study will detail the investigation of "Mike Pyro" aka Robert Scott Jr. and his scheme to persuade five different women to produce child pornography with seven different children between one and five years old for the promise of money. The presenters will cover the investigation of Scott and detail how they were able to connect him to the activity since the entire scheme was conducted over a cell phone using free texting applications or "apps". The presenters will cover the prosecution strategies as the defendants were located over the course of several months, and lessons learned as this investigation involved the use of new technologies to communicate online without the use of any computers. Attendees are guaranteed to walk away in disbelief after listening to and viewing this presentation.
