It sounds here like they are focusing on the production of pornography for now but wouldn't be surprised if the indictment came back with additional charges.
From The Boston Herald:
A federal court judge in Boston yesterday said she was “deeply concerned” after viewing a “shocking” video allegedly showing a Nantucket contractor and high school sailing coach raping a child.
“Still photos are one thing, but I have seen the video, and it’s pretty shocking . . . The video . . . portrays a violent sex act with a child resisting,” Judge Marianne B. Bowler told William H. Constable’s attorney after he asked that his client be released on bail.
Constable, 53, and his three sisters offered $4.5 million in Nantucket property as collateral, but Bowler ordered him held without bail until she decides whether to release him pending his trial.His lawyer James M. Merberg argued that all but one of the more than 500 images found on his client’s digital camera show him raping children in southeast Asia, not the United States, and in that one photo, Constable can’t be clearly identified.
. . .
The judge’s comments followed an FBI agent’s testimony Thursday that Constable had told authorities he had raped approximately 30 children on trips to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
Special Agent Sarah De Lair also described many of the images in a camera he left in a Hyannis-area hotel, allegedly showing him raping children who appear as young as 4 as they cry, scream or lie with rags stuffed in their mouths.
Federal authorities arrested Constable at his $1.275 million home Oct. 25 on charges of producing child pornography and transporting it into the United States.
If convicted, he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years and a maximum of 30 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000 and a term of supervised release ranging from five years to life.
