Still of Lloyd Emerson STORYLINE: Sixteen people, including 10 Americans, have been charged with taking sexually explicit photographs of their own children or children in their care and sending them over the Internet to an international child pornography ring. Two men were arrested in a child pornography ring on Saturday. The suspects are all men, except for a Danish woman, who was charged along with her husband, Eggert Jensen. Among the U-S citizens charged since January are chiropractor Lloyd Alan Emmerson of California, who has pleaded innocent, and eight others named in a federal indictment unsealed on Friday in California. Another, Jeffrey Naimo of Texas, has pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Six residents of Denmark, Switzerland and the Netherlands were also indicted in California, including the Jensens, and the Justice Department is seeking their extradition. Two Englishmen and two Germans face charges in their home countries, officials said. Each charge of sexual exploitation of children, conspiracy to exploit children and receiving and distributing child pornography carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years to a maximum of 20 years. Some defendants could receive 60 years if convicted of all charges against them. More arrests are expected. Authorities are still trying to identify other children in some of the explicit pictures. Investigators allege that members of the ring befriended each other through internet chat rooms and began trading explicit computer messages. Men sometimes requested photographs of children in specific sexual poses. One asked for an audiotape so he could hear a child crying while being spanked, the indictment said. The investigation began when the international charity Save the Children found a picture on the internet that appeared to show a child being molested and reported it to Danish authorities. Danish police found information on the Jensens' computer that was forwarded to the U-S Customs Service and led to Emmerson's arrest.
