AG: Phoenix man charged with streaming child porn to users in video conference room

PHOENIX - A Phoenix man is accused of sending out child pornography to other participants in a virtual conference room. 

The Arizona Attorney General's Office has charged 46-year-old Michael Ray Bucy with ten counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. 

A special agent with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security signed into a video conference room known for the sharing of child pornography. The agent was able to capture a webcam image of the face of one of the users and contacted him via an online chat session. 

The user, later identified as Bucy, sent the agent three cloud storage links containing multiple files of child porn. 

Agents tracked the user to Phoenix and raided his home near 36th Street and Thomas Road on June 21. 

Agents say Bucy matched the image taken from the webcam, and confirmed he was the creator of the cloud storage accounts and a participant of the video conference room.
