    Sleezeball can face up to life in prison

    The city’s police officer of the year in 2011 pleaded guilty in federal court Monday to child-exploitation charges, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said Tuesday.

    Michael Edwin Harding faces up to life in prison and must register as a sex offender wherever he lives, said Nestor Yglesias, spokesman for the department’s Homeland Security Investigations office in Miami. Sentencing for the former Port St. Lucie police officer is scheduled for May 16.

    Michael Harding, the city’s 2011 police officer of the year, pleaded guilty to child-exploitation charges and faces up to life in prison when he is sentenced May 16.
    Harding, 27, of Port St. Lucie, entered pleas to three counts of possession and distribution of material involving sexual exploitation of minors, attempting to coerce and enticing a minor to engage in sexual activity and production of child pornography, following an investigation led by Homeland Security and city police.

    According to court documents, Harding posted multiple images and videos to a chat room on a popular social media application between July 23 and Aug. 4, 2015. The still images and video — later found to be on Harding’s phone — depicted children engaging in sexually explicit acts.

    Investigators searched Harding’s Port St. Lucie home Sept. 22, seizing his computer and cellphone and a thumb drive. They found the items contained hundreds of images and more than 100 videos of minors engaged in sex acts with adults.

    The investigation also found that Harding also tried to coerce and entice a minor to engage in sexual activity over the Internet. Chat messages stored on his phone show a conversation he had with another person. Both Harding and the other person said they had custody of children whom they would trade for sex.

    Harding also used his cellphone to produced child pornography, shooting a video depicting his sexual contact with a child under the age of 12, investigators said.

    I'm not afraid to say it: I'm against child porn. Also, Nazis and racism.

    This just sickens me.

    It's probably not a popular idea, but I'm OK with the death penalty for pedophiles. They'll never change... no kid is ever safe from them.
