Prosecutors say they were a couple in March 2015, when cops raided Dykes' home and found a horrifying cache of child pornography on his laptop and cellphone.
According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, forensic analysts found more than 1,000 child porn pictures and videos on Dykes' laptop and pictures and videos on his cellphone showing him performing sexual acts on a two-year-old girl.
Jeff Nagle, the Australian chief executive of International Justice Mission, is familiar with the raid."Upon the arrest of Kyle Dawson and the seizure of his computer equipment they were able to identify the location of some of that live-streaming abuse in the Philippines," he told 7.30."Kyle Dawson had recorded those shows to watch at a later date and had done that with the intent to share or watch again that there was stored material that could be used as evidence."The AFP tipped off authorities in the Philippines and together with International Justice Mission launched a sting operation by posing as a customer."That's when the police started to go into the house and rescue the children," Mr Inocencio said."They're being provided with psychological care, especially trauma-informed care."Joann is now being prosecuted for qualified trafficking — basically this is the law against trafficking against persons in the Philippines."In July, Dawson was sentenced to five years in prison at the Brisbane District Court.
