The author of a guide for pedophiles was arrested yesterday at his home in Colorado and will be booked in to the Polk County, Fl., jail today, reports the Orlando Sentinel. Phillip R. Greaves II, 47, of Pueblo, Co., faces a charge of distribution of obscene material depicting minors engaged in conduct harmful to minors, a third degree felony. The charge is related to his book The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover’s Code of Conduct.
Greaves’ book, which includes graphic stories depicting adults in sexual relationships with young children, had been available via Amazon.com until last month. The retailer stopped selling the book after protests. Polk detectives learned about the book during the controversy and ordered one from Greaves for $50. The former nurse’s aide sent a signed copy to an address within the jurisdiction of the sheriff’s office.
