Federal prosecutors have taken over a case involving a Lincoln Park man arrested for possessing hundreds of images of child pornography.
James Patrick Finn III, 42, is facing federal charges of possession of child pornography and receipt of child pornography. He faces the possibility of up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Finn had been facing state child pornography charges after being arrested July 17 in his house in the 3300 block of Applewood. That matter, however, was dropped last month.
"In this particular case, we have dismissed our case so the feds can proceed with theirs," said Maria Miller, spokeswoman for the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office.
We have to remember that it was by the actions of members of Perverted Justice that JimF3 (James Patrick Finn III) was brought to the attention of the Detroit Police Department, and eventually caught by them in the act of downloading child porn!
Great work Perverted Justice!!
