TV EXEC ARRESTED ON SUSPICION OF RECEIVING, DISTRIBUTING CHILD PORN.

Byline: Josh Kleinbaum Staff Writer

A 62-year-old television executive was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of receiving and distributing child pornography over the Internet, officials said.

Agents with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency served a search warrant at the Van Nuys apartment of Anthony Logan, a partner with Beverly Hills-based CineVision and the writer and director of the live art auction show ``Fine Art Treasures.''

They found hundreds of child pornography images on his computer, Resident Agent in Charge Scott Brown said.

``He had a pretty prolific collection, including some very hard-core images - children as young as a few months being molested by adults,'' Brown said.

``He admitted that he was viewing child pornography, and that as recently as (Tuesday) night he was going in child pornography chat rooms on the Internet. It was in those chat rooms that he would engage in what he would call 'fantasy chats' about child molestation.''

There is no evidence to suggest that Logan physically molested children, Brown said.

Logan was part of a child pornography ring which ICE has been investigating since 2003, Brown said. ICE has linked 120 people to child pornography during the investigation and agents have already made 10 arrests, Brown said.

Officials from CineVision did not return messages seeking comment. Logan's show, ``Fine Art Treasures,'' airs twice a week on Dish Network and DirecTV.
