Florida men accounted for a large contingent of the 255 arrested in a nationwide crackdown on predators who use the Internet to draw children into pornography, the  Orlando Sentinel reports. 

One of the men was from a Sanford-based missionary group. Three of the child victims were from Florida.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
