Charge: Man drugged girls for porn videos

captured_Image.png A Missouri man acknowledged drugging young girls and posing them for pictures to be posted on the Internet but denies he did anything wrong, prosecutors said.

An FBI search of James Phillip Edwards' Kansas City, Mo., home and computer disclosed a date-rape video file showing three girls being given ice cream.

Drinks allegedly laced with Ambien, a sedative used to treat insomnia, and another file called "Phil's kindergarten class ages 4-7" -- described as a collage of photographs showing five girls apparently asleep -- the Kansas City Star reported Thursday.

Edwards, 60, was indicted on charges of advertising, possessing and attempting to distribute child pornography, court records showed.

Edwards' wife of 22 years, who requested anonymity, refused to say how her husband knew the girls, saying she wanted to protect the girls' privacy.

Edwards had told investigators he did not believe he had done anything wrong.

"(Edwards') view is that society places arbitrary lines (as in age restrictions) around sexual conduct, with which he doesn't agree," assistant U.S. Attorney Katharine Fincham said. "By his own admission, the defendant has been a danger to the community, unchecked, for years."

Edwards was being held without bond.
