Woman Uses Three-Year-Old For Porn
Skyped to UK.

By John Nova Lomax

Working together, Interpol, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Webster police have busted a 24-year-old Hitchcock woman allegedly responsible for creating live child porn and transmitting it to a British man via Skype.

According to court documents, after a raid on the home of a man named Paul Hanlon, British police found transcripts of sexually charged Skype chats with Misty Reneedawn Wofford. According to the police report, the bobbies read that Hanlon constantly begged Wofford to include a three-year-old girl of her acquaintance in the sexual Skyping, so they alerted Interpol, who passed the information on to the feds, who alerted local police.

On September 20, Wofford was hunted down at an apartment in Webster that she shared with a friend and his daughter — the three-year-old in question. Webster cops found all three of them at home when they came knocking with a search warrant.

Police told Wofford they had read all of her chats with Hanlon and that they knew he had pressured her into including the toddler in the proceedings. In a taped interview, Wofford said that while Hanlon had encouraged her "to do many things," she had never sexually assaulted the child.

She did, however, admit that she had exposed the child's genitals and encouraged the toddler to pull on her exposed nipples in front of the Webcam, "to pleasure the man from the UK," according to the report.

Which was enough for a charge of encouraging the sexual performance of a child, a third-degree felony punishable by up to ten years in prison.

Wofford is currently in the Harris County Jail. Bail was set at $30,000.

"Things don't always work out how you plan them," Wofford posted on Facebook earlier this month, "but they DO work out how they are supposed to!"

That might be true in her case, but too bad her alleged victim is not able to say the same thing.

Houston's Opium Dens
A dirty, sexy town.

By John Nova Lomax

Drug busts on the Mexican border are nothing new. At the El Paso/Juarez crossing in 1910, the feds seized a huge shipment of Texas-bound opium, at least some of which was believed to be headed to Houston.

That was the theory of George McCann, at any rate one he expounded on at length in an April 29, 1910, Houston Chronicle story headlined "Opium Smoked in This City: Government Agent Finds Traces of Slaves to the Black Pipe." (Since there was neither an FBI nor a DEA in those days, McCann was described only as a "secret agent.")

"There is opium in Houston in large quantities and lovers of the seductive pipe are not a few," opened the article, before quoting McCann to the effect that one of the men snagged in the El Paso bust had once lived here before his fateful trip to the border and then to the federal pen at Fort Leavenworth.

McCann told the paper that though they had seized a large amount of the celestial drug, much more had slipped through their dragnet and made its way here, where, the Chronicle intoned, there are many "reckless and degenerate who delight in a pull at the pipe." (What is it about opium that turns all reporters into pseudo-Coleridges? We succumbed ourselves to this weird tic not two months ago.)

McCann said that most of the opium in Houston was not smoked but consumed in either tablet or liquid form, which was evidently a-okay. And he was at great pains to point out that there were no purpose-built opium "joints" or dens in what was then known as the Magnolia City. On the other hand, there were certain bordellos in the "Reservation," Houston's early 20th-century red-light district, where the ladies were quite fond of the stuff.

"There's one house where practically every girl in the place takes an occasional pull on the seductive pipe," McCann told the Chron. "Not only are the girls addicted to the use of the drug, but their immediate 'gentlemen' friends do not hesitate to take an occasional wander into dreamland through the medium of the little black stem."

And McCann was just getting started on his alluringly depraved portrait.

"In fact, this particular place, which is one of the largest houses in the Reservation, is, as far as its inmates and their degrading habits are concerned, a veritable Oriental palace. Each girl who uses the drug at all has her room furnished in a style so that she can smoke and dream the dreams that only opium can produce in luxury."

Still, that didn't make it an opium den, McCann said. It was just a whorehouse where everybody smoked opium all the time. And that was almost okay, apparently.

Okay, two things. McCann seems to know a lot about both smoking opium and the individual habits and boudoir layouts of each and every one of the denizens of that particular palace of sin. Might one suppose that his "investigation" might have been a little more, shall we say, participatory, than modern police standards would condone?
