First and foremost, child pornography investigations almost always start online.  Remember the good ole’ days of Napster? Remember how it was taken down? Remember when Metallica and Dr. Dre sued Napster?

Well, Napster may be gone, but there are thousands of copycat websites out there – and they are still in business.  However, these sites not only provide users with bootleg copies of movies, software, music, and the like, but they are also home to some of the seediest, low down and dirty parts of the internet.  It is these dark neighborhoods where child pornography lives.

Tomas Portuondo, a Pembroke Pines, Florida insurance salesman and youth coach, was arrested Wednesday for allegedly sexually abusing a preteen girl over a period of three years, news sources report. Portuondo, 25, was booked into the Broward County Main Jail on 11 counts relating to the lewd and lascivious molestation on a child between 12 and 16 by a person over 18. A county judge ordered that he be held in lieu of $30,000 bail.

Sources say Portuondo is a coach for a girls’ basketball team in Broward County. In addition, reports say Portuondo also served as an insurance sales representative. So far, it is unclear whether the youth team has spoken out about these allegations against their former coach. The allegations do not appear to be related to Portuondo’s role as a coach.

According to reports, the abuse started in April 2010 when the victim was 11 years old. Reports say Portuondo was friends with the victim’s family. The details of the alleged abuse, such as where it purportedly took place and what it involved, were not specified in reports. The sexual abuse continued for three years until it drew to a close in March of this year.

The victim’s mother went to the police regarding the sexual misconduct in March, sources say. During an investigation, police supposedly discovered text messages regarding the abuse that the victim had sent. Police are currently conducting an investigation to determine whether there may be any more victims. The Pembroke Pines Police Department Investigations Bureau is asking anyone with more information to either call or email. Tipsters may remain anonymous.

Timothy Eugene Alexander Jr., a former South Trail, Florida firefighter, and Joshua Dale Bryan were arrested Wednesday after they were connected to the rape of a 16-year-old girl, news sources report. Alexander, 31, and Bryan, the victim’s 18-year-old ex-boyfriend, were booked into the county jail on charges of sexual battery. Alexander has since been released on a $150,000 bail bond. Bryan is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail. The press did not specify a criminal defense lawyer for either of the defendants.

According to reports, Alexander worked as firefighter for the South Trail Fire District for eight years before his arrest. Alexander has since been fired from the department due to an unrelated criminal case, reports indicate. “This kind of thing is an embarrassment to all public safety, and when this comes forward, we’ll do all that we can to ensure this doesn’t happen to anyone else,” a firefighter spokesperson said. “It is appalling to us. The charge is appalling,” another firefighter spokesperson said of the case.

This is not Alexander’s first run-in with the law, sources say. On April 9, Alexander was in the passenger seat of a car with his wife and father in Fort Myers. He allegedly seized the steering wheel and threated to steer the vehicle into a pole. “[The wife] said it was very loud, very loud and very abusive,” a neighbor reportedly said. Alexander was purportedly drunk at the time.

A month ago, Alexander was reportedly involved in another case with his wife. Reports say Alexander strangled the victim outside of their apartment until she passed out, then pulled her back inside the residence. This allegedly occurred in the presence of the couple’s seven-year-old boy.

No criminal record for Bryan, who is apparently a relation of Alexander’s, was mentioned in reports. The victim is Bryan’s former girlfriend, sources report. Bryan is accused of conspiring with Alexander to set the stage for the rape on the night of the incident.
