t A DETROIT FFCE PRESS WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22, 1981 9 cuscd men also subjects of probe of pornography ring RING, from Page 3A said the two men searched for youngsters "they could easily befriend, often offering them money." ' One source said, "THEN THESE GUYS would engage in sex acts with the kids, take photos of the whole thing and then send the stuff around the country." Gentry did say the two are believed responsible for kiddie porn that has been distributed In "at least three states between the East Coast and Minnesota." On April 2, Kneiding was arrested in his Cass Corridor apartment, where police say many of the sex acts occurred and were photographed. The following day, he was charged with one count of criminal sexual conduct and, after waiving his preliminary examination, was ordered to stand trial by Recorder's Court Judge George Crockett III, said Gentry. Gilbert was arrested at his home by East Detroit police on April 1 1 and charged two days later with one count of criminal sexual conduct. After the preliminary examination, Crockett ordered Gilbert to stand trial on the charge. In addition, Kneiding was charged Monday with a second case of sexual assault and faces an April 29 preliminary examination. BOTH MEN are free on bail awaiting their trials, according to police investigators. One of the sexual assaults Kneiding is charged with involved a 16-year-old youth who was on leave from a juvenile treatment facility in another Michigan city, according to police and court records. Between July 4 and July 9, 1980, according to police sources, Kneiding paid the youth money to engage in sex and took photos of the activities. In a July 8 letter sent to a person in Minnesota, Kneiding bragged that he "got a nice shot of him with my one-step (camera) just for you," the sources said. The two men have been the targets of an investigation begun eight months ago by the U.S. Postal Service, according to Gentry. "We developed information and began an investigation and then went to the Michigan state police for further assistance," said Paul Groza Jr., a Postal Service Investigator who said his speciality Is kiddie porn cases. While refusing to say how the postal authorities became aware of Kneiding and Gilbert, Groza did say "this whole thing is a major, significant investigation." r i r i i 19.. -4 J - - w , I "1 ft U Jury picked in Blanton case A federal judge in Nashville has selected a jury to hear the liquor license kickback trial of former Tennessee Gov.

Fake ID pleas ihrown ou I JUDGE, from Page 3A held, probably in Ingham County, to hear the case against Hotch-kiss. She did not know whether it will be a jury trial. HOTCHKISS SAID HE FEELS vindicated by the ruling. "It's now beginning to come together," he said, adding that he feels he will win the case in court. "I knew I was going fishing for sharks, and they (local prosecutors) caught me on the bank looking for water. I didn't have my net, my boots or my bait, but now I'm ready." He said a request will be made by local officials for a grand jury to Investigate the falsification of IDs something he has sought since the case first came to light last year. Hotchkiss cited evidence that a state Public Health Department employe was fired for wrongdoing involving birth certificates. Hotchkiss used a birth certificate bearing the name of a dead man to obtain a driver license last fall an offense for which he paid $100 in fines and costs. County authorities charge Hotchkiss also registered to vote under the name. Hotchkiss now has 15 days to answer a complaint filed against him by the Judicial Tenure Commission. A judge or retired judge will be appointed as a "master" to hear the case. The master will make recommendations to the commission, which will eventually forward the case to the Michigan Supreme Court. 1 Plane crash kills 2 BONN - (AP) - A West German Air Force F4 Phantom jet crashed into a house near the Dutch border Tuesday, killing the two crewmen, a Defense Ministry spokesman said. No civilian Injuries were reported at the scene, near the northern town of Leer. The house was damaged slightly. EX-VP MAY FACE BIG BILL Agnew bribery trial begins ANNAPOLIS, Md. - (AP) - Former Vice-President Spiro T. Agnew should pay at least $298,1 10 to the state treasury for "an enormous breach of contract with Maryland voters for allegedly accepting bribes while serving as governor, an attorney for the state argued Tuesday. Diana G. Motz, an assistant attorney general, told Circuit Judge Bruce C. Williams that includes $177,500 plus interest, the amount she said engineers paid Agnew to get state contracts while Agnew was governor in 1967 and 1968. It is clear that in abusing his high office, defen dant Agnew seriously injured the people of Maryland," Motz said. She said he should be required to fairly compensate the people of Maryland for "using the prestige of his high public office for his own purposes." The alleged bribes hurt taxpayers, she said, because they resulted "in higher contract prices or inferior work Hi i i a Spiro Agnew or a loss of the best bargain or all of these things." Motz's comments came during opening statements at a civil suit filed against Agnew and Jerome B. Wolff, who was chairman of the state Roads Commission under Agnew. WOLFF HAS AGREED to testify and will be removed from the suit when he appears in court, Gary I. Strausberg, his lawyer, said. Another original defendant, I.H. (Bud) Hammerman, also was removed from the suit after he repaid the state $30,000 he allegedly received in bribes and $22,455 in interest. Agnew's lawyer in the civil suit, Thomas R. Harrison, postponed his opening statement. Agnew is not expected to attend court proceedings in the case, but his tax records have been turned over to the state. Included in those records is a settlement Agnew negotiated with the Internal Revenue Service after resigning as vice-president and pleading no contest to federal Income tax evasion in 1973. Prosecutors say Agnew began accepting bribes during the mid-1960s when he was Baltimore County executive and that the payments continued after he moved into the vice-president's office in Washington. Agnew has consistently maintained he is innocent of the charges. flctroU iTrcc Prcso (USPS. 155-500) Published dally and Sunday by Detroit Free Press. Inc. at 321 W. Lafayette. Detroit.
