Feds charge Mayfair man with child porn

Start­Frag­ment

A May­fair man is fa­cing fed­er­al charges that he took por­no­graph­ic pho­tos of a minor and put them on the In­ter­net to ad­vert­ise pros­ti­tutes.

Ac­cord­ing to an Aug. 30 fed­er­al in­dict­ment, Enoch Smith, 35, re­cruited young fe­males to work as pros­ti­tutes, and he ad­vert­ised his busi­ness on the Web.

“These ad­vert­ise­ments fea­tured pic­tures of the pros­ti­tutes, either scantily clad, or top­less with their hands cov­er­ing their breasts, the price and a phone num­ber to call to ar­range a meet­ing with the pros­ti­tute,” the in­dict­ment stated.

Smith, also known as Id­ris or Drees, pho­to­graphed the nude gen­it­als of a minor for the pur­pose of put­ting the photo on the In­ter­net on April 13, 2011, the in­dict­ment charged, which is a vi­ol­a­tion of fed­er­al laws.

He faces life im­pris­on­ment, if con­victed, ac­cord­ing to Patty Hart­man, a spokes­wo­man for the U.S. At­tor­ney’s of­fice.

Smith also is in trouble with loc­al au­thor­it­ies on state pros­ti­tu­tion charges.

He was ar­res­ted on pro­mot­ing pros­ti­tu­tion charges on June 30, 2011. He is in cus­tody in Bucks County Pris­on, await­ing a Nov. 5 tri­al in Room 1001 of the Crim­in­al Justice Cen­ter, 13th and Fil­bert streets. ••
