Disturbing information regarding disgraced CNN producer John Griffin surfaced on Wednesday and that authorities may have known about Griffin abusing underage girls 17 months before his arrest.

A criminal complaint filed in the state of Nevada against a mother accused of pimping her 9-year-old daughter out to CNN's John Griffin revealed that authorities arrested the mother in August 2020 and seized Griffin's devices the following month. This means that law enforcement allegedly knew about Griffin's abuse for more than a year before his arrest last Friday, Fox News reports.

According to court documents, federal investigators seized computers storage media, devices, phones, cameras, MicroSD cards, images, and video from Griffin on Sept. 2, 2020.

Griffin, who was a producer for CNN's senior political analyst John Avlon, was arrested by the FBI last week after being charged by a federal grand jury in Vermont.

Griffin faces "three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity," per the US Attorney's Office for the District of Vermont.

The indictment alleges that Griffin lured a mother and her underage daughter to his home for the purposes of sexual abuse in July 2020. From April to July 2020, Griffin used online messaging systems such as Kik and Google Hangouts to reach out to parents with underage daughters.

Griffin is also alleged to have tried to "entice two other children over the internet to engage in sexual activity," and tried to engage a mother and her 14-year-old daughter in a "virtual training session" where he would instruct them to take off their clothes and touch each other per his wishes.

Another allegation is that Griffin tried to lure another mother, and her 16-year-old daughter, to take a "little mother daughter trip" to his Vermont property so that he could engage in "sexual training" with the teen.
