"Web site for child models was a front for child pornography"

Jeffrey Wormsley - currently in jail, Wheaton Illinois
"Mar.17, 2005 CHICAGO -- A suburban man was arrested Friday after a seven-month investigation led police to him.

Police say a Web site for child models was a front for child pornography. The site appeared to promote careers for girls, but instead police found illegal images on computers.

NBC5's Charlie Wojciechowski said customs agents and Lockport police caught up with Jeffrey Wormsley in the parking lot of a Target store in Joliet.

The 22-year-old Plainfield man is now being held on 10 counts of child pornography in connection with the work he did for the Web site.

While the site claims to be part of a modeling agency for girls and young women, authorities say it also included pictures of naked children and children engaged in sexual conduct.

Wormsley's wife said the pictures were not taken locally, but were imported from photographers in Russia and Brazil.

 "I don't think he did it. I think our boss left the country so he would not get in trouble for it," Stella Wormsley said. "(He) left us all in trouble."

The boss, who has not been charged, operated the business and the Web site from his Lockport house. Neither he nor his attorney was available for comment.

Wojciechowski said that this arrest may be part of a larger investigation.

The Will County State's Attorney declined to comment further on Wormsley's arrest, but admits that the investigation into the alleged child pornography site is still under way.

Jeffrey Wormsely remains in jail, his wife unable to come up with the $5,000 to get him out..."

The website in question was Willey Studios, a child modeling agency owned by Greg Willey of Lockport, Illinois:

Today, Willey Studios continues to operate, these days under several other titles also, such as "Agency Modeling" and "Lite Photography." This agency, whatever you want to call it, is also co-administered by Tim Oliver AKA Bat21 of Hammond, Indiana.

The Jeff Wormsely affair wasn't Willey Studios only brush with the law; In 2007, Antônio August of Brazil was arrested for his involvement with the website. August operated as a photographer for Willey Studios.

Patrick Cowland is: Coming at Yer!

And who is Patrick Cowland, I hear you ask? 

Patrick Cowland AKA Dorian Cowland is the individual who was responsible for operating the now-defunct child modeling website for pederasts (pedophiles with a sexual preference for little boys), known as "Coming at Yer!:"

During 2011 Cowland and his website were put out of commission when he was arrested and charged for possessing indecent photographs of children:

Patrick Cowland from Balsall Common, United Kingdom
Dorian Cowland (pictured) had pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to possessing 1,000 indecent photographs of children in October 2010 with a view to distributing them.
Cowland (62) of Kelsey Lane, Balsall Common, also admitted ten charges of distributing portfolios of indecent images to ten named men on dates between March and October 2010.
Cowland described himself as ‘a paedophile but not an active one,’ and said he believed indecent images were ones in which the private parts were shown, which his did not.
The local police were informed, and in October that year officers went to his home where they seized two boxes of boys’ clothing, cameras and computer equipment.
Asked about the chat site Cowland, who was jailed for four years in 1988 for indecently assaulting a ten-year-old boy and taking indecent photographs of him, said he did not visit the chat site very often.
