Michael Wayne Campbell is a Tennessee man who is facing charges of aggravated sexual exploitation. But unlike amateur pedophile, Campbell comes up with creative ways to continue to sexually exploit children using digital evidence. Of course, until the lies were found.
Campbell is accused of having placed the faces of three young girls - a 10-year-old, a 12-year-old and a 16-year-old Miley Cyrus - on adult women' naked body. A minor for what authorities say are three pictures - none of them featuring an actual child's body.
This is verified by the defendant himself, as reported by CNN.
Hamilton County Det. Michael Cox said Campbell told authorities "he wanted to see what they would look like as adults," according to WDEF.
Investigators do not believe Campbell had any contact with the three girls, but "when you have the face of a small child affixed to a nude body of a mature woman, it's going to be the state's position that this is for sexual gratification and that this is simulated sexual activity," Assistant District Attorney Dave Denny said during Wednesday's hearing. Attempts to contact Denny by CNN Wednesday were unsuccessful.
Cases like Campbell's present a unique legal issue. The U.S. Supreme Court in 2002 ruled that "virtual child pornography," in which no children were actually harmed, is protected speech and does not constitute a crime.
Since then, "more and more of these guys are using morphed images, image manipulations" in an attempt to circumvent prosecution, Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
