Pornography Continued from page 1A No one has been charged with child pornography in the Scott County sexual-abuse case, In which 24 adults were charged. Two people were acquitted of sexual-abuse charges in September, and on Monday Morris dropped charges against the others. Rud had pleaded guilty to child sexual-abuse charges and is awaiting sentencing. The 10-year-old boy told a Jordan police investigator that Rud forced him at gunpoint into a car at Jordan's Lagoon Park in spring of 1982 and drove him to a "bluish-gray house" in the Jordan-Shakopee area, where a ritualistic sex party was staged. "There were women that were whipping kids if they didn't do the right stuff," the boy told the investigator. The boy, who was 9 at the time, said there were 14 youngsters, and at least seven women carrying whips and "a lot of men . . . they had masks on." The youngster said there were at least two photographers present. He said there were "a couple of ladies there with unusual clothes on . . . they had real dark mascara and real dark stuff on and they had see-through clothes on." The adults led boys and girls, two at a time, into rooms where they were forced to engage in sex, the boy told the investigator. "They made us do poses and stuff like that and they took pictures of us through the door," the. boy said. The boy described a photo session as lasting half an hour and said: "There was sort of like a lady in the corner, and if we didn't do stuff, they would whip us." An investigator asked the boy, "Do you know any of the girls' names that were there?" "They just called everybody 'honey child' and 'toys,'" the boy replied. "They were crazy. They just were crazy." At the conclusion of the session, the boy said, "They gave the girl a shot and she was drowsy, and then got her dressed up and then it was just a big blackout and I woke up in the woods. In another incident, in the fall of 1982, the boy said, he was riding a bicycle in Holzer Park in Jordan when a man he called Jim and an unidentified man who "looked like a professional photographer" pulled up in a black limousine. "He had millions of cameras," the youth was quoted as telling an investigator. "Jim and that guy just ran up there and grabbed the end of my bike and held me back. They brought me into that sort of dump part of Holzer Park. The photographer told me to take off my clothes." The boy recounted how he and "Jim" engaged in sex while the photographer took pictures. "Then he just took pictures of Jim and stuff and then he gave me my clothes back. Jim said . . . how much does this stuff cost, and the guy said, 'You worked your money's worth,' and gave him a bag of pills and some dusty stuff. And I rode my bike home and made supper and went to bed right away." In another incident that fall, the boy alleged, Rud photographed him and a woman in sex acts and threatened him if he reported the episode to police. "They threatened to kill someone, not my family, but someone in my family," police quoted the boy as saying. The 13-year-old girl told Scott County investigators in July 1984 that she was paid $5 for appearing in sex movies taken by some of the former defendants in the Jordan area. The girl said she had sex with one of the former defendants while another former defendant filmed the sex acts. Pornography continued on page 8A Or" J ' ''' ' Reg. $25.
