ORLANDO, Florida – Investigators with The Florida Department of Law Enforcement Orlando Regional Operations Center say dozens of young females may have been victimized by Justin Slavinski, 32.
FDLE’s Cyber Crime Task Force arrested Slavinski Thursday after receiving information from the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office in South Carolina regarding active warrants.
The South Carolina warrants were for soliciting a minor via the internet to engage in sexual activity, transmission of materials harmful to a minor and lewd and lascivious behavior.
Agents subsequently executed a search warrant at 1360 Ravida Woods Drive, Apopka, Fla. A preliminary forensic examination of Slavinski’s computer revealed numerous photographs depicting child pornography.
Agents have developed information that Slavinski has been in contact with as many as 40 young females throughout Florida over the internet. FDLE is conducting an investigation to see if any of these girls are the victims of a crime. Additional charges are anticipated.
“Cases of this nature are always disturbing, but I find this one particularly heinous,” said FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey. “I urge anyone with information about this investigation to contact FDLE Orlando Regional Operations Center.”
Slavinski was booked into the Lake County Jail where he is awaiting extradition to South Carolina.
