Technology companies reversed their opposition to legislation aimed at squelching the online trafficking of children and now support a Senate measure they earlier criticized as endangering freedom of expression.

The Internet Association, a trade group whose members include Google and Facebook Inc., issued a statement on Friday, Nov. 3, in support of what it called a compromise on the bill. Senators said in a statement there had been technical changes to the measure.

Navy SEAL commando pleads guilty to sex crime against child – The San Diego Union

A San Diego-based Navy SEAL who filmed himself molesting a sleeping child has pleaded guilty to a federal sex crime.

Arrested in San Diego by federal marshals in April following a probe by Naval Criminal Investigative Service’s Norfolk field office, SEAL Team One Petty Officer 1st Class Gregory Kyle Seerden pleaded guilty Tuesday morning in Norfolk federal court to one count of producing child pornography, a crime that carries a mandatory minimum 15-year sentence, plus at least five years of supervised release when he exits prison.

He also admitted to violating the 5-year-old girl and hiding a trove of child pornography on his cellphone as part of his plea agreement.

Seerden, 31, of Missouri, is slated to be sentenced on the federal charges on Jan. 18 and then faces state and military prosecution as well.
