Author of pedophilia guide sold on Amazon facing obscenity charges in Florida
Phillip R. Greaves was arrested Monday at his home in Pueblo and extradited to Polk County, Fla., after he mailed “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover’s Code of Conduct” to undercover deputies there who had requested a copy.
Amazon quickly pulled the book off its site last month after hordes of customers complained and vowed to boycott the online retailer. The book features graphic stories depicting adults engaged in sex acts with young boys, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
Greaves, 47, has no criminal record. He mailed the book after the deputies paid him $50.
