A man pleaded innocent in federal court to charges he induced a Pennsylvania woman to have sex with her 7-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son on camera and transmit the pictures to him over the Internet.
David N. Searle Jr., 33, of Syracuse, told the agents that he met the woman in an Internet chat room and became her "dominatrix," according to an FBI affidavit filed in U.S. District Court.
FBI agents arrested Searle Tuesday morning at his job. He was arraigned Thursday on a charge of causing the production of child pornography and ordered held in jail without bail.
The woman involved with Searle died from a drug overdose in 1999. Her husband found a tape while going through her belongings that showed the woman having sex with their son while their daughter took photographs.
