  • A Kansas City man sentenced to 245 year in prison for drugging children with sleeping-pill laced ice cream so he could create porn says he wants to lead a “pro-pedophile” movement from prison.
    During sentencing Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Dean Whipple told 63-year-old James Phillip Edwards that his “conduct is beyond comprehension.”
    The office of the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Missouri said Edwards videotaped his assaults on 13 girls over a four-year period.
    Edwards pleaded no contest in March 2011 to 21 counts related to producing and distributing child pornography.
    In June 2009, an Independence police detective, working on a different investigation, captured Edwards’ computer IP address, which contributed to this investigation.
    Court records say Edwards’ plan to become a pro-pedophile activist came to light in an essay he wrote called, “The Pedophile Minority.” Prosecutors said in a sentencing document that Edwards decided to be the “standard-bearer for pedophiles” and to start while in prison.
