Important Warning from PCSO

Important Warning from PCSO

An important warning for parents and children in Pinal County and across the state. The FBI Portland Division arrested Larry Lewis Hudson, 44, who’s accused of luring girls from multiple states to engage in sexual activity online.

Hudson had accounts on sites like Meetme, Meet24, and Kik. He used screen name “hottgu” or “Brian Johnson” and his emails started with “bigtlarry” and “hotbrian8”. Hudson was talking to girls between the ages of 13-16 and would typically lie to his victims about his age, telling them he was in his 20s. One of his victims was a 16-year-old developmentally disabled girl from Illinois. Hudson also targeted a 14-year-old victim in Louisiana.

Hudson also sent inappropriate pictures of himself and pictures of child pornography to an undercover Pinal County Sheriff’s detective posing as teen. Hudson attempted to lure our undercover detective to engage in sexually explicit conversations. Hudson had similar conversations with another undercover detective in Texas.

Hudson was convicted in 2001 for sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl. He also failed to register as a sex offender in 2005.

We do believe there are more victims out there. If your child is a victim or if anyone has any further information about potential contact between Hudson and any child, please inform the FBI or your local law enforcement agency. The FBI's Portland Division can be reached at (503) 224-4181. You can also call Pinal County Sheriff’s Office at 520-866-5111.
