LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Southern California man has been arrested after authorities say he emailed explicit images of a 3-month-old boy to England.
Robert Schrader, of Littlerock, was arrested Monday and remains jailed on federal charges of producing child pornography.
Prosecutors say British authorities alerted a U.S. diplomat last month that someone had sent the images to an undercover investigator.
Authorities say data embedded in the images showed they were taken in the area of Schrader's home. Investigators searched the home and determined the boy in the pictures is a relative of Schrader's.
A Homeland Security official says the baby is one of the youngest child pornography victims ever identified in the Los Angeles area, if not the youngest.
