Authorities: At least 70 charged in NYC area in child porn case, including rabbi, Scout leader

Federal authorities have charged at least 70 men and one woman in the New York City area as part of a child porn investigation.

The five-week operation has targeted people who use computer file-sharing programs to exchange videos and photos of children having sex.

Authorities say the defendants include a police officer, a paramedic, a rabbi and a Boy Scout leader.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in New York led the investigation. Officials plan to announce the arrests later Wednesday.
