During his investigation, Robert says he accompanied men to a famous toy store. Soon after arriving, he says they ran to the railing to watch children ride a 60-foot Ferris wheel. "[They] stood there and watched the boys going around in the Ferris wheel, commenting on specific boys and the actual sexual acts they'd like to do with the boys," he says.
After spending three years as a NAMBLA member, Robert made his move. The FBI set up a fake boat trip to Mexico and promised participants that they would be able to engage in sexual acts with young boys. Eager to participate, men began signing up for the trip.
The FBI arrested eight men—including Todd Calvin. All eight were convicted, but sentences ranged from two years to 30 years.
