Edmond Deacon to Face Trial on Underage Porn Charges

6/16/07 -- OKC, OK - A former Edmond Church of Christ deacon, accused of secretly videotaping his daughter and her teenage friends nude, is set to face a jury this September.

As previously reported, Edmond resident Jason Adam Fly, 46, was arrested in January after friends of Fly's daughter reported to police that they believed Fly was secretly videotaping them changing clothes.

Fly's arrest was followed by four felony charges; One count of possession of child pornography, two counts of procuring a minor for sexually explicit images and a single count of using electronic equipment in a clandestine manner.

Fly appeared before Oklahoma County judge Fred Doak on February 23 for his preliminary hearing.

Investigators testified that they spoke with Fly while investigating the allegations against him and executed a search warrant on his Edmond residence.

In December of 2006, Fly's teen daughter had three female friends over at their home. At some point, one of the teenagers saw an image on Fly's computer screen of another one of the girls changing clothes. The girls told their parents, who in turn contacted police.

Fly was questioned by police and arrested soon thereafter on 25 felony complaints. Fly was released from jail after posting a $40,000 bond.

As a result of the investigation by Edmond police, it was learned that Fly had at least two concealed cameras in his home. One camera was located in his daughter's bedroom and one or two other cameras were located in her bathroom.

Police found over 400 videos and still images of teen girls nude in the Fly home. Police said the images were of young girls in various stages of undress in the bedroom, using the toilet and taking a bath.

Fly reportedly told police he had cameras in his daughter's bedroom and bathroom, but also had cameras in his son's bedroom and the home's foyer. However, police found no evidence to support that claim. Fly said the cameras were in place to monitor his son who he had recently been having problems with him sneaking out and using alcohol.

Allegedly, when police asked Fly to produce the cameras, he said he had destroyed them after the girls had contacted police.

Police testified at the preliminary hearing that they also found a video that appeared to show a girl as young as 10-years old performing oral sex on an adult male.

Fly's attorney at the hearing, Jerry Colclazier, argued that charges of producing pornography depicting a minor were unwarranted. Colclazier told the court that the images of the teens in the Fly's residence were not sexually explicit and only contained nudity and therefore should not be considered porn.

Colclazier further argued that there was no evidence Fly had shot the video of the pre-teen engaged in sexual intercourse.

Unimpressed, the judge bound Fly over for jury trial, to be held on September 24. Additionally, the state requested and was granted three additional charges against Fly; (count 5) use of electronic equipment in a clandestine manner, (count 6) possession of obscene material involving participation of a minor, (count 7) possession, procuring/manufacturing child pornography.

Apparently, also unimpressed with his performance at the preliminary hearing, this past May, Fly fired Colclazier and hired local attorney Mack Martin. will continue to follow this case and bring you latest.

OKC Police Indifference to Street Prostitution a Cause for Concern

6/13/07 -- OKC, OK - Some say police officers patrolling prostitution infested areas of South Oklahoma City are making their community worse by befriending the hookers and their pimps. has posted a video (click thumbnail image above) that shows graphic examples of police consorting with hookers and the hookers becoming so emboldened they mock the officers and do not even try to hide their illegal activities; activities that literally hold families hostage in their own homes.

The video is broken down into two parts. Part 1 depicts a day when police were called to arrest a street prostitute with outstanding warrants. The police Lt. who arrived on scene did not bother to arrest the soliciting prostitute on her warrants. Instead, the officer chatted with the hooker and instructed her to work a few blocks away and in another police district. The officer then attempted to intimidate Brian Bates, aka the Video Vigilante, and founder of this site, by parking next to him and staring at him.

The second part shows several hookers soliciting in a neighborhood park. A police officer arrives on scene. Instead of checking the hookers for warrants or running them off, the officer jokes with the hookers. One of them tells the officer how much she has missed him. The same hooker refers to another officer as her husband and says she's having his baby. As the officer leaves the hookers to solicit, the hookers tell him they are being harassed and to look after them.
