Massive Child Exploitation Sweep Leads to Nearly 300 Arrests

Nearlt 300 people are behind bars after a wide-ranging child exploitation investigation in the Los Angeles area.

"Operation Broken Heart" involved 62 federal and regional law enforcement organizations across five counties.  Authorities say some of those arrested include a retired Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy involved in child pornography, a special needs teacher's assistant who sought sex with two children, and a 64-year-old computer programmer who hoped to meet a 15-year-old at a public park for sex. 

Throughout the operation, detectives often pretended to be minors to lure predators into sting meetings, and investigators are reminding parents to have frank conversations with their kids to keep them safe in cyberspace.
