WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) - Florida sheriff's deputies have arrested on obscenity charges a Colorado man who wrote a guide for pedophiles.
Polk County deputies arrested Phillip Ray Greaves II at his home in Pueblo early Monday on a Florida warrant.
Polk Sheriff Grady Judd says his office was able to arrest Greaves on Florida obscenity charges because Greaves sold and mailed his book, "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover's Code of Conduct," to Polk deputies. Judd says Greaves even signed the book.
In November, Greaves garnered national attention because his self-published book for sale on Amazon offered advice to pedophiles on how to make a sexual encounter with a child as safe as possible. The website later removed the book.
