Filipino body-builder arrested in NY on child pornography allegations
In Queens, New York, a Filipino body-builder snagged this month by federal authorities in an international child pornography investigation.
According to allegations from the US attorney, from September to October 2016, 26-year old Keith Liwanag used Facebook to direct women in the Philippines to engage in sexual acts with children in exchange for money.
He also allegedly asked them to produce the pornographic material, and send it to him over Facebook messenger.
The US attorney says they discovered 10 recorded video conferences between Liwanag and women engaged in the child sex abuse.
If convicted, Liwanag faces up to 30 years in prison.
