Child Molestation Manual Surfaces
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Orange County sheriff deputies say a new, 170-page manual is circulating around Central Florida. It shows people, step-by-step, how to molest children. It also includes where to find potential victims.
â€œI’ve never seen anything like it. It was pretty amazing when I first saw it just because how detailed it was,â€ said Detective Philip Graves with the Orange County Sheriffâ€™s Office.
Deputies with the sheriffâ€™s sexual offender surveillance squad have been aware of the manual for the past six months. The sheriff’s office received it through an email list serve.
â€œWe personally haven’t worked a case on it, but it has been located within our region,â€ Graves said.
Graves told WFTV that sending the manual by email, or possessing it, is not a crime in Orange County. However, the sheriff’s office is trying to track down where the manual initially came from.
