Officer Arrested for Federal Internet Offense

By Law Offices of Robert H. Humphrey  Sep. 9, 2013 3:32p

A Richmond police officer is facing serious federal charges for using a police chief's name as the name of a website which linked to pornography sites. Officer S.G., 41 years old, is accused of using the name of the chief to establish two different domain names which would then take web surfers to websites with pornographic material that had nothing to do with the police chief. The chief received an anonymous tip concerning the use of his name and reported the incident to federal investigators. A postal inspector looked into the incident and discovered that S.G. had paid for the domain names nearly a year ago. After several months of investigation, S.G. was taken into custody for "using misleading domain names on the Internet", a federal offense. The officer, who has been with the Richmond police department for about seven years, is facing the possibility of substantial fines and/or up to two years behind bars in a federal penitentiary if he is convicted of the charges against him.
