Nationwide Porn Bust Includes Tipp City Man

TIPP CITY -- After several months of investigation, a Federal Grand Jury indicts eight different individuals across the nation for crimes involving the sexual victimization of children, including a Tipp City man.

"It's enough to give you a nervous breakdown. It's hard because we don't know what's going to happen," said the mother of John Foster, 44.

She says she will continue to stand by her son even though she was shocked to see several police officers surround her house and arrest him earlier this month.

"He's actually a good man," she said. "When my husband passed away John has been with me. He's taken me to the doctor; he has been with me during my open heart surgery. He supported me monthly with things that I couldn't afford like medications."

Now Foster faces two charges: distribution and receipt of child pornography, crimes punishable with five to 20 years in prison.

"He is under a lot of stress and he said, 'mom I made a big mistake and I'm probably going to have to pay for it,'" she said.

"My children are no longer allowed to play out front unless an adult is with them they do not get on or off the bus unless I am physically out there with them," said neighbor Michelle Miller.

"I do not want him in my neighborhood, I do not want him around my children. I think everyone needs to be aware of where he is, how close he is to Charles H. Huber Elementary School. I feel for the poor families who were under contract to build houses right next door to him. We are waiting for him to go to trial. Until that happens, we will watch our children and we will continue to watch everyone else's children like a hawk."

Homeland Security started this investigation in June of 2012 while patrolling the internet.

"If he was 16-years-old I would say monitor their computer usage, but there's no way I could do that," said Mom. "I know he's done wrong and I'm disappointed but he's my son and I'm going to stay with him."

A judge released Foster a week after his arrest but placed him 24-hour  house arrest.  He is now awaiting a summons to appear in federal court in New Orleans, where the case originated.

Here is the full list of arrests:
DANIEL NOLAN DEVOR, age 39, of Brunswick, Georgia;
JOHN C. FOSTER, age 44, of Tipp City, Ohio;
AUNG GAW, a/k/a Michael Gaw, age 25, of Fremont, California;
SEAN JABBAR, age 32, of Minneapolis, Minnesota;
CHRISTOPHER JAMIESON, age 30, of Douglasville, Georgia;
ANDREW J. KORPAL, age 29, of Granger, Indiana;
NICHOLAS SAINE, age 27, of Seattle, Washington; and
STANLEY ZDON, III, age 27, of Tuckerton, New Jersey.

"These indictments represent a strong coordinated strike - by Homeland Security, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and several U. S. Attorney's Offices around the country - against child pornography and those who allegedly seek to harm our most vulnerable citizens, our young children," stated U. S. Attorney Kenneth Allen Polite, Jr.

"Child sexual predators cause significant harm to our society by inflicting horrific abuse on innocent children," said HSI New Orleans Special Agent in Charge Raymond R. Parmer Jr. "Predators do all they can to hide their online actions, but these arrests show that in even the darkest corners of the Internet, HSI and its law enforcement partners will investigate and seek prosecution wherever these criminals may be found."  Parmer oversees a five-state region including Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee.

"Postal Inspectors investigate a wide variety of crime in our mission to protect the integrity of the U.S. Mail, but sexual exploitation of children is particularly heinous," said U.S. Postal Inspection Service Inspector in Charge Robert Wemyss. "When these predators use a combination of mail and the Internet, we appreciate partnering with other law enforcement partners such as HSI to ensure no aspect of their crimes escape justice."

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims. For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit www.projectsafechildhood.gov.

U. S. Attorney Polite reiterated that the Indictment is merely a charge and that the guilt of the defendant must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

This case is being investigated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security-Homeland Security Investigations and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.  The prosecution of this case is being handled by Strike Force Chief and Project Safe Childhood Coordinator, Assistant U. S. Attorney Brian M. Klebba.
