Arrests for child pornography are a troubling trend. Operating child porn sites is also a  multibillion-dollar online industry. That is  according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Further, child trafficking is especially highly consumed on the dark web. Moreover, contents of children being sexually assaulted are everyday items on black markets. Sexually explicit images of innocent little children are also highly consumed on these sites.

Largest child trafficking porn site.

Now, the federal government has charged four people. And with them is a man from Middle Tennessee. In addition, the people had been participating in and running a dark web child exploitation business.

For operating “the Giftbox Exchange,” the courts sentenced Patrick D. Falte, 29, of Franklin, to 35 years in jail. Allegedly, the “Giftbox Exchange” was a space for child porn vendors to create and disseminate vile child sexual assault contents. In addition, the black market space is considered the largest child trafficking site.

Again, visitors had to submit and distribute the contents of children being sexually molested to acquire access to the website. Now, the black market website was divided into sections based on gender and age. Further, the site had a “Babies & Toddlers” section.
The government shut the site down in November 2016. Also, it had 72,000 registered users and 56,000 posts.

Also, Falte was the master of his own game. Further, he utilized the anonymity that comes with the dark web. Remember, through the TOR search engine, the dark web engines obscure users' identities. Therefore, the dark web’s black markets is a massive platform for child trafficking and pornography, just like Falte.

Falte's website attracted child porn vendors across the world

Remember, Falte’s website attracted child porn vendors accordingly from all over the world. One Benjamin Faulkner, a 26-year-old Canadian, is one of his customers. Infact, the two even met in person at some point.

Together, Falte and Benjamin assaulted a 4-year-old minor. Equally important, they met other vendors who provided the ‘prey’.

Likewise, Benjamin received a 35 years jail term for child trafficking, assault among other charges.

So, Falte provided a haven for criminals. While sitting in a room in Franklin, Tennessee, they committed these pitiful acts. In addition, they shared their serious crimes and encouraged others to perform serious actions.
Later, in 2017, the courts handed both Falte and Benjamin life imprisonment. Furthermore, it  was in connection with the abuse of a toddler.

Undoubtedly, while these men now rot in prison, their criminal activities have left an incredible mark on the Dark Web.

What is classified as child porn?

Equally important, Jenni Smith is the Sumner County Assistant District Attorney. Also, she specializes in Child trafficking cases. And, according to Smith, any child can be a victim if their picture is posted online.

“Sometimes you’ll see parents posting pictures of their kids on Facebook doing innocent day-to-day activities”, Explained Smith. “My mind automatically goes to, these could be on someone’s computer”.

Further, it all starts with an obsession. Mostly with pictures of children.

According to Smith, her worst realization is that the child victims are people you will not save. Hence, you can only aid to identify perpetrators and child pornography vendors.
