Bartow (Florida): A man who wrote a how-to
guide for paedophiles is on his way to a jail in Florida.

Phillip Greaves of Pueblo, Colorado, will be booked
into the Polk County jail today. Officials say his first court
appearance is scheduled for tomorrow.

The 47-year-old was arrested yesterday in Colorado and
is charged with violating Florida`s obscenity law, a
third-degree felony.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd claims jurisdiction
because Greaves sold and mailed a copy of his book to
undercover deputies who had written the author requesting a
copy.

The book caused outrage when it was listed on Amazon
in November. It was later removed from the website.

Florida`s obscenity law prohibits distributing
material that depicts children "engaged in conduct harmful to
minors."
