TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A former spokesman for Florida's child
welfare agency is expected to face additional charges, after
federal prosecutors said they've identified four new victims in the
child pornography case.
Al Zimmerman was arrested in February and fired from his job at
the Department of Children & Families. Investigators accused
Zimmerman of taking nude photos of at least two teenage boys for
distribution to overseas pornographers. One of them has been
identified as a foster child in the care of Zimmerman's agency. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Colleen Murphy-Davis said in court
Wednesday that she expects a new indictment to be handed up this
Zimmerman is being held without bond in jail pending his trial.
