'The Pedophile's Guide' Author Phillip R. Greaves Arrested

In November, AP reported that Amazon.com was selling a self-published guide for pedophiles. A day later, the book, titled "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover's Code of Conduct," disappeared from Amazon's online shelves.

Now, the book's author, Phillip R. Greaves, has been arrested in Colorado for violating Florida state obscenity laws, reports Central Flordia News 13.

According to the Polk Country sheriff's office in Florida, Internet Crimes Division detectives contacted Greaves at his Colorado home and requested a copy of "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure." Greaves allegedly sent a signed copy to the Polk County deputies.

The transaction led to Greaves's arrest on December 20, writes CFNews13.

Greaves faces third-degree felony charges for "distribution of obscene material depicting minors engaged in conduct harmful to minors," according to the Orlando Sentinel.
