Update: Mangione pleaded not guilty to all counts. He "showed no emotion" in court, according to the Miami Herald.

The head law enforcement official for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in South Florida, Anthony Mangione, has been indicted in federal court on counts of transporting, receiving, and possessing child pornography. The indictment came down on Tuesday and was unsealed earlier today following his arraignment in West Palm Beach in front of Circuit Judge James Hopkins.

The charges of transportation and receipt both carry a five-year mandatory minimum prison sentence and a maximum 20-year sentence. The possession charge carries a maximum sentence of ten years. In addition, Mangione will face supervised release after leaving prison and will have to register as a sex offender, according to a news release sent out today by the FBI.

The FBI and BSO are collaborating on an ongoing investigation while a case is built against Mangione. According to the FBI:

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children, as well as to identify and rescue victims.

Mangione is currently in custody at the Broward County Main Jail in Fort Lauderdale.

Very interesting statistics, but am I missing something here?  Not too many priests moonlighting for ICE I dont think.  And vice versa.

And as evil as it is, possessing child porn is not the same thing as child molestation.  

But, other than that, a list of very interesting facts and figures.

I am suggesting we (rightly so) drop the hammer on Mr. Ice...   But why do we allow Father Jimmy a hall pass?

Can you imagine if another organization, say HP, had 4% of its front line managers accused of such atrocities? We'd run that company out of town, let alone by printer ink from them.

But, then again, WTF do I know. According to many Christians, us atheists have no morals.
