Child Porn Investigations Bill

Law enforcement officials have identified more than 19,000 individual computers containing hard-core child pornography in Virginia but said they don't have the resources to investigate all of the suspected sexual predators.

The officers were in Richmond on Wednesday to push "Alicia's Law," which was named after a Pennsylvania teen who was brought to Virginia by an online predator, raped and tortured.

Delegate Brian Moran's bill would provide additional money for law enforcement to crack down on Internet predators.

Members from Virginia's two Internet Crimes Against Children task forces said the state ranks 10th nationwide in the number of transactions of child pornography over the Internet.
