LEE COUNTY, Florida -- A man accused of producing porn with a 4-year-old girl previously posed as a teenager in chat rooms to share child porn, according to court documents.
Alan Johnson, 33, pleaded guilty to charges of possessing child pornography in 2003, and got out of prison after six years.
According to a search warrant, he would claim to be a 13-year-old or 14-year-old girl as he entered chat rooms for several hours a night to trade images of underage girls engaged in sexual acts with adults. Some of those children were under the age of 7.
Johnson and his girlfriend, Jennifer Sparks, are now facing charges after a cell phone left in a WalMart shopping cart was found loaded with child porn. Lee County detectives say images on that cell phone and another phone found inside their North Fort Myers home showed them engaged in sex acts with a 4-year-old girl.
The little girl was found in Polk County and is now in state custody.
Sparks has three children of her own, and the Florida Department of Children and Families confirmed to 10 News that she has been investigated several times.
The FBI is reviewing this case, and there could be federal action taken against Johnson and Sparks.
