Timothy DeFoggiNEBRASKA – Timothy DeFoggi, the former acting director of cyber security at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, was convicted of engaging in a child exploitation enterprise.

DeFoggi, the 56-year-old known online as PTasseater, fuckchrist, kinky_cpl and slutcpl, was the sixth person convicted as part of an ongoing investigation that targeted three child porn websites being run by a single administrator, 31-year-old Aaron McGrath.

McGrath and his members felt that because the websites were being operated and visited anonymously through TOR, they were safe from identification. They found out how wrong they were after the FBI initiated “Operation Torpedo” in 2012. This program scoured TOR websites to determine if they were related to illegal activity.

Federal investigators eventually found McGrath’s child porn sites and began monitoring them. At one point the FBI finally seized one of the sites, PedoBook, but left it up and running for several weeks gathering info from all who visited it. They did this using a variety of techniques – including installing malware on visiting member’s computers.

By time they were done, investigators had enough info to identify and indict two dozen people, including DeFoggi. When agents arrived at DeFoggi’s home, they found him in the process of downloading a child porn video from a Tor website called Onion Pedo Video Archive.

During his trial, prosecutors were able to show a federal jury that DeFoggi registered as a website member on March 2, 2012, and remained active on the site until the FBI took it down on Dec. 8, 2012.

According to their evidence, DeFoggi accessed child pornography, solicited child pornography from other members, and exchanged private messages with other members where he expressed an interest in the violent rape and murder of children.

He even went as far as to suggest meeting up with a another member so they could fulfill their desire to violently rape and murder children.

It only took the jury four days to come back with their verdict – Defoggi was found guilty of engaging in a child exploitation enterprise, conspiracy to advertise and distribute child pornography, and accessing a computer with intent to view child pornography.

His sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 7, 2014.

    As a frequent visitor to this site, I’m usually pretty proud that Nebraska is rarely featured. Not today.

  • King A sshole

    I FOUND IT! The perfect punishment for pedophiles!

  • Kristina

    “It only took the jury four day to come back with a guilty verdict”….Oh that statement pleases me and pisses me off all at the same time…BOING

  • Kristina

    okay…..share…???

  • Texas Ranger

    So I guess you can say our government’s cyber security ain’t worth a shit. A pro can’t even keep from being hacked. We are fucked you know.

  • NoBS

    Funny, that 4 days to figure it out hit me as WTF.

    Let me try the cup is half full approach, one of the jurors dragged their ass only for the free food.
    You never know, free food has value.

    Our government is the one who busted him, along with two dozen others by injecting malware into the systems that visited the site.

    “The malware that investigators installed remotely on the machines of visitors to PedoBook and McGrath’s other sites was designed to identify the computer’s IP address as well as its MAC address and other identifiers. The results were coordinated raids in April 2013 that swept up more than a dozen suspects.”

    I’d say they did a pretty good job exploiting over-confidence and general stupidity. DeFoggi was no pro. Especially if he thought that by using TOR alone, he would remain anonymous.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    There was a lot of tech they had to process. Also, they had to be sure that the tech proved DeFoggi was the one on the computer and not someone else.

  • Kristina

    Oh splendid…rubbing my hands together in a diabolical way.

  • Kristina

    So they were thorough….fair enough. Poor fuckers….I hope I never get jury duty.

  • King A sshole

    The Finger Pyramid of Evil Contemplation…

  • Texas Ranger

    I don’t see how they do it. I’m no pedo, but if I was…I wouldn’t even turn on a computer, let alone troll the back alleys of the net…I said it before and I’ll say it again. I am so glad God made criminals stupid.

  • wastintime

    So when will they hang him and can I get a ticket through ticket master?

  • Sejanus

    He may have gone by PTasseater, but soon he will be a FTcocksmoker.

    Say hi to your new pals in Cell Block C fuckeyes.

  • itsknotme

    “… they found him in the process of downloading a child porn video …”

    I don’t have this problem. By the time my downloads completed, the girl is now a grandma and the FBI boys are long retired….. Does anyone know where I can buy a ten pack of formatted 5 1/4″ 360k floppies? I got to zip an 800 gig file on my 10 megabyte hard drive. Hey, and while you’re here, why does my VCR keep flashing ’12:00:00’?

    Yes! Medieval torture technique. I say bring it back

    It is written in ancient texts that not only will my farts blot out the sun, but will enact the return of The Cloven one who will cast the human race into a decadent orgy of atrocious suffering

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    Agreed.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    I love jury duty… but I’ve never had to sit on a trial were I saw autopsy reports for dead kids, or had to look at child porn…. so yeah, I see where you are coming from.

  • mean birch

    Loving your disclaimer

  • 1DireWolf

    What is the attraction with children? The best feeling in the world is when a mature woman responses sexually. Little girls are not capable of this. Then his fantasy of killing children points to a psychopathy that belongs in a cage for the rest of his life.

  • Technomancer

    Holy fucksticks…this guy is beyond creepy. He wanted to MURDER kids? WTF? Rot in jail, then burn in Hell.

  • Technomancer

    Amen!

  • Lena60

    Ick! creepy sick bastard.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Support of child porn by watching and/or paying is absolutely terrible, but if there is one shining note: there is no mention of evidence that he actually raped or in some other way injured a child. I hope he didn’t… gross fuck.

  • Buffettgirl

    “He even went as far as to suggest meeting up with a another member so they could fulfill their desire to violently rape and murder children.” If we know this why is he still breathing?

  • LuvsHorror

    Psst…here in the alley…I got tickets…front row!

  • HAL 9000

    This guy was head of “cyber security” for the biggest government entity (by budget) in all the land!?

    If this is typical representation of the IT talent level at DHS, it explains a lot of Obamacare’s problems.

    “At one point the FBI finally seized one of the sites, PedoBook, but left it up and running for several weeks gathering info from all who visited it. They did this using a variety of techniques – including installing malware on visiting member’s computers.” This might be the only use of my tax dollars that I have approved of in the past five years.

  • Stormclouds

    Burn him. Fire cures all ills. And all pedos, too.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    Tor…pedo LOL

  • Tania

    This world is gross!!!
    Monsters that hurt children should be stoned!!

  • patrickdh10

    4 freaking days????? How many molesters were on that jury or were the amenities of free food and free upscale lodging too difficult to relinquish without a few extra days at taxpayers expense? How about 4 seconds to convict this psycho to life in prison along with his gang of pedo-pervs. I don’t think that’s too long.

  • Twisted1

    Omg the people at Anus computers (google it) would love to send that to a nice young Nigerian lad.

  • ShelbySP

    PTasseater? As in part time? Hell naw. You should definitely get overtime and health insurance doing that.
