Law enforcement in Washington County, Arkansas area says that they've apprehended a pedophile for distributing thousands of files of child pornography off the "dark web," and that the man has confessed to engaging in the crimes.
24-year-old James Daosaeng agreed to enter a guilty plea in a United States District Court in Fayetteville after authorities were tipped off about someone using his IP address having been engaged in the disturbing downloading and distribution of the illicit photographs depicting prepubescent children engaged in being sexually assaulted by adults.
Agents with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force first became aware of the illicit transmissions in the summer of 2017, at which time they monitored the activities of Daosaeng at his home on Southfork Street in Springdale.

After Agents obtained enough information to ask a federal judge for a search warrant, they later raided the home of Daosaeng at which time they discovered a whopping 13,791 images and 947 videos depicting tiny children engaged in numerous brutal and grotesque sexual abuse situations, all of which were located on three devices, including a handheld Nintendo DS system’s SD card.
Authorities say that the ages of the children in the videos and images ranged anywhere from teenagers to newborn infants, in showcasing that Daosaeng was clearly a very sick and disturbing individual.
Daosaeng wasn't home at the time of the warrant execution, but he did arrive during mid-search, and told authorities that he had been engaged in sharing the illicit files via the “dark web,” just prior to his arrest.
In January, a federal grand jury indicted Daosaeng on numerous charges.
As per his plea arrangement with federal prosecutors, he will plead guilty to a single count of downloading child pornography, a federal offense, as the government agrees to dismiss the other charges to avoid a lengthy and expensive trial.
Daosaeng is currently being held in the Washington County Detention Center without bond, where he will remain until sentencing.
A federal judge is expected to sentence the pedophile to 20 years on a federal penitentiary and slap him with a $250,000 fine for his crimes against children.
One more vile pedophile is now off the streets thanks to the quick and efficient work of federal authorities.
