PUEBLO, Colo. – A Colorado man who wrote a how-to guide for pedophiles is being transferred to Florida to face obscenity charges, after deputies there ordered a copy of the book that has generated online outrage.
Officers on Monday arrested Phillip R. Greaves at his home in Pueblo on a warrant that charges him with violating Florida's obscenity law. Greaves has waived his right to fight extradition to Polk County, Fla.
Pueblo County Sheriff's Deputy Laurie Kilpatrick says Greaves has left Colorado, but he declined to give details of Greaves' transfer.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd says his office can arrest Greaves because he sold and mailed his self-published book directly to undercover Polk deputies. The deputies had written Greaves a letter seeking a copy of the book, called "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover's Code of Conduct."
