Default Photo Radar Worker Arrested for Child Porn

Camera Fraud Article: Photo Radar Worker Arrested for Child Porn


pornpredA man believed to be a Redflex Traffic Systems employee has been arrested in Harrison County, TX in what officials are calling a “major” child pornography case according to the Marshall News Messenger.


Christopher Everette Jacobs of Longview, TX was arrested June 3 on three counts of child pornography.


“He was kind of a computer expert,” said [Sheriff] McCool, noting he worked for the company that manages the traffic cameras for Marshall and Longview.’


The cities of Marshall and Longview, TX utilize Redflex as their automated ticketing vendor, according to the Redflex website.


In March of 2009, the Arizona Department of Public Safety testified before state officials that they considered Redflex employees to be “agents of the state,” despite the severe lack of training and Peace Officer Standards Testing which are the norm for police officers and even some security guards.


Other Redflex employees have had their fair share of serious run-ins with the law. Late last year, Roderick Ruffin was arrested in Scottsdale for “extreme DUI” while driving an automated ticketing van. A month later, Corey Fleetwood, another Redflex van driver, attacked a demonstrator in Tempe for holding a sign near his van. Despite Redflex claiming that all employees proceed though a detailed background check, Ruffin had been involved with an assault accusation before.


As to the Texas child porn arrest, the Sheriff stated that “…there could be further charges of sexual assault.”


If Jacobs is found to have been a photo radar van driver, could it be that Redflex placed him within direct contact with children through the deployment of school-zone photo radar vans? The same vans that allow drivers to seal off windows to prevent people from looking in from the outside? Was illicit content accessed though Redflex’s network or computer systems? Only time will tell as the investigation proceeds.


Also of note: In 2005, traffic cameras in China were discovered being abused by control-room employees for the purposes of voyeurism.
