Allen is 22-year veteran of law enforcement and a member of the Cleveland FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force and the video was of a man raping a boy, no older than two years old. Allen is required to look at these sorts of videos as part of his job, and his job takes its toll.

“Some of them just take it out of you,” the 48-year-old detective said.

Allen and the hundreds of other investigators who work child pornography and exploitation cases nationwide must reckon with the short- and long-term psychological impact of repeatedly being exposed to images of helpless children being violated.

Three investigators interviewed by cleveland.com spoke of the taxing nature of the work. All three have to undergo a yearly psychological

Man accused of having hundreds of child porn images

A Bay St. Louis man has been arrested in a child pornography investigation that has reportedly identified 325 pictures of 51 known child victims on his computers.

Peter Skladzien, a contract employee in information technology at NASA, was arrested Monday in Houston before he boarded a plane to Taiwan, a court document said.

His arrest came after Homeland Security Investigations received a tip about suspicious travel by Skladzien to Thailand, “a known sexual tourism destination,” an HSI agent’s affidavit said. Skladzien allegedly traveled to Thailand in April and used PayPal to watch webcam shows of children.

An HSI agent interviewed Skladzien in June, and Skladzien denied downloading sexually explicit pictures or videos of children, the affidavit said. Skladzien said he had traveled to Thailand to see his girlfriend, and had paid to watch women online through an adult webcam service.

He agreed to allow NASA’s Office of Inspector General to search his
