Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden has announced an arrest from investigators with his Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit.

23-year-old Joseph M. Law of Kuna was arrested Tuesday and booked into the Ada County Jail. Law is charged with one felony count of sexual exploitation of a child.

The investigation started after the ICAC Unit received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Ada County Prosecutor's Office, Boise Police Department and Ada County Sheriff’s Office assisted the ICAC Unit.

Anyone with information regarding the exploitation of children is encouraged to contact local police, the Attorney General’s ICAC Unit at (208) 334-4527 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678.

The Attorney General’s ICAC Unit works with the IdahoICAC Task Force, a coalition of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, to investigate and prosecute individuals who use the internet to criminally exploit children.
