The man who created controversy for Amazon.com with his book on how to be a pedophile has been arrested in Colorado.
Phillip Greaves was arrested at his home in Pueblo on obscenity charges from Florida.
Sheriff Grady Judd in Polk County, Fla., said his office was able to arrest Greaves because he sold and mailed his book, “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover’s Code of Conduct,” directly to undercover Polk deputies.
Arrest Warrant for Author of "Pedophile's Guide"
Detectives worked with prosecutors with the 10 Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Office to review the book and make the case, Judd said. Based on Florida law, they got a warrant for Greaves’ arrest for selling and mailing his pedophilia book, which Judd said advocates for pedophilia and offers training in how to do it. The author sold the book to Polk sheriff’s detectives, the sheriff said.
It contains two graphic stories depicting an adult engaged in sex acts with children, according to the Sheriff’s Office, specifically an adult having sex with a 9-year-old boy and with a 13-year-old boy.
“The book also defends, advocates, and trains adults regarding illegal sex acts between adults and children,” according to information from the Sheriff’s Office. more
