Florida sheriff's deputies have arrested a Colorado man who wrote a guide for pedophiles on obscenity charges.

Polk County deputies arrested Phillip Ray Greaves II at his home in Pueblo, Colo., early Monday on a warrant out of Florida.

Polk Sheriff Grady Judd says his office was able to arrest Greaves on Florida obscenity charges because Greaves sold and mailed his book, "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover's Code of Conduct," to Polk deputies. Judd says Greaves even signed the book.


The self-published book offered advice to pedophiles on how to make sexual encounters with cdren as safe as possible. It was briefly for sale on Amazon, but the website later removed it.
