King of [Child] Porn Back in the News

This is well timed considering I just wrote about this guy last week.

Note: Swearingen’s 20 year run and threat to society ended because of an conscientious landlord taking a few minutes to check on his SSN. Nevertheless, the Utah legislature and businesses do not want to protect our children and ourselves from the other predators and fugitives in our state (see the link at the top of this post).

Anyway, the story aired on KUTV2 News and is available on their website. The original, damning story (King of Child Pornography Busted Trying to Set Up Shop in Utah) is also available. I think you need Internet Explorer to view them. Here’s the transcript of the latest story:

A man who called himself the ‘King of Porn’ has changed his plea.

Forty-six year old kirk Swearingen entered a plea of guilty in Federal Court, yesterday to charges of possessing and distributing child pornography.

Investigators say Swearingen is a dangerous child predator who’s been on the run for 22 years, using as many as 40 different names.

Swearingen now faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced on June 25th. Just last September, Swearingen pleaded “not guilty” to the same charges.
