Former DCF Spokesperson Facing Federal Charges

February 12th, 2008 by flanews

Former DCF spokesman Al Zimmerman is now facing federal child pornography charges for allegedly offering to sell obscene pictures of children in a sex act to German citizens. He could face up to 15 years in prison. Attorney General Bill McCollum has focused his office on the problem of child porn and says there is no guarantee some other state employee isn’t doing the same thing.

“We don’t have any idea whether or not somebody is engaged somewhere else in state government in some kind of child pornography or who might be a child predator. That’s the whole problem with the type of person who’s involved. There is no socioeconomic identity to this. There is no question this person who does this type of activity could come from any walk of life, any race, religion, sexual orientation, and ethnicity. It doesn’t matter if you’re a doctor, lawyer, laborer,” said McCollum.

This year, the number of investigators in the Attorney Generals office working on internet predators and child pornography jumped from six to 50.
