An additional 11 arrests are announced Thursday as part of last year's "Operation Phalanx" child predator Internet sweep in Virginia.
The undercover, collaborative law enforcement effort was first announced in April with 20 arrests. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says this first-of-its-kind operation in Virginia. It was conducted over a week-long period in 2011 with the purpose of detecting and capturing online, child predators. The charges range from solicitation of a minor to distribution of child pornography.
Another 26 cases have also been referred for investigation and prosecution outside of Virginia.
