Miami man has been indicted on federal charges of child pornography and having sex with a 15-year-old boy in Brevard County, federal officials said Thursday.
Eric Albert Seiden, 45, was arrested Tuesday as part of Immigration and Customs Enforcement's "Operation Predator," an effort to identify human traffickers, international sex tourists and Internet child pornographers.
Officials said Seiden contacted a 15-year-old boy in February 2009, sent him an "obscene picture" and solicited child pornography from the boy. He later went to Brevard County to have sex with the boy, according to ICE officials.
Seiden was charged with producing child pornography, transmitting obscene material to a minor and using a facility of interstate commerce to entice a minor to engage in sex. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 70 years in prison.
