Google, Facebook worry over anti-prostitution bill’s fallout

Google and Facebook are among companies opposing a Senate bill aimed at squelching online trafficking of children. It’s a stance that makes the Silicon Valley giants uneasy allies of a website accused of providing an advertising platform for teen prostitution.

The companies and tech trade groups say online providers will face greater liability for speech and videos posted by users if federal lawmakers move against Backpage.com and its online classified ads.

Bill supporters disagree, saying the measure creates a narrow exception to deter lawbreakers and won’t harm the internet.

“There’s clearly a problem” as victims of sex trafficking advertised on Backpage repeatedly lose before judges who cite the federal immunity, said Yiota Souras, general counsel for the National Center for Missing and Exploited

Google found child porn in his email, now St. Louis man gets 8 years in prison

ST. LOUIS • A St. Louis man caught with child porn by Google was sentenced Tuesday in federal court here to 8 years and one month in prison.

Julien C. Pender, 26, of the 4300 block of Neosho Street, was found with 2,690 still images and 46 videos containing child pornography, court documents say.

The investigation began when Google spotted child porn in an email and alerted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which notified law enforcement, court records show.

A search of his computer equipment by police in 2014 found the images. 

Pender was originally charged in St. Louis Circuit Court in June 2016. The federal charges were filed that October.

Google uses automated systems to analyze emails and other content on its servers to identify child pornography, and reports illegal content to law enforcement.

Robert Arias 

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A convicted sex offender who shared photographs of a nude 7-year-old boy that were flagged by Google has been sentenced to more than 14 years in prison.

Robert Arias, 54, of Broadview Heights, pleaded guilty last month to 16 counts of possessing child pornography, three counts of producing it, and one count of possessing criminal tools.

Cuyahoga County Judge Timothy McCormack on Wednesday sentenced Arias to 14 years and nine months in prison.

McCormack also ordered Arias to register as a sex offender every six months for 25 years after his release.

Arias was identified in February. Google sent a tip to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, who in turn went to the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, that someone had uploaded a photograph of a nude child to a Google service, according

A Michigan ex-con was arrested with child pornography after Google reported he uploaded the graphic content to a photo account, prosecutors said.

Christopher Cole, 41, was booked on charges that include possession of child sexually abusive material and using a computer to commit a crime after the tech giant reported the alleged activity to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children last year, according to Muskegon County prosecutors.

The agency called in the state police to examine thousands of graphic images Cole had apparently uploaded to a Google photo account, Muskegon County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Maat told MLive.com.

Investigators later determined Cole, who was arraigned this month, had allegedly reproduced some of the images.

“It’s alleged that he was in possession and made copies of materials involving underage males,” Maat told MLive.com.

The charges carry a potential sentence of 20 years in prison, but since Cole has prior convictions — one for
