According to the statement, State Police assigned to the AG's Office began an investigation in May after receiving information from the Massachusetts Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that someone had allegedly uploaded images of child pornography to an online chat room using an IP address linked to Pike. 'I hope that this case send a clear message that we will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law those who participate in these types of activities.'An investigation that began in Milford in 2010 — expanded to Europe and beyond —has returned back to where it originally started: the Commonwealth of Massachusetts,' said Bruce Foucart, special agent in charge of the Homeland Security Investigation in Boston.'Since we began this operation —Operation Holitna — a worldwide network of offenders has been, and continues to be,unraveled, including Portway.' Foucart added,'Thanks to the determination of HSI, along with our partners at the U. attorney’s office, we have been able to rescue 160 children and arrest 51 perpetrators worldwide.This was all as a result of the arrest of a Milford man, and subsequent advanced forensics of his digital media.'Portway's guilty plea should serve as a stern warning to those inclined toabuse children or share images of child pornography: there isn’t a place in the United States, on yhe Internet, or the planet in which you are truly safe. Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts and HSI Boston arrested Robert Diduca on child pornography production charges.
