An employee of the Montedio Yamagata J-League football team was arrested October 14 after it was discovered he requested and received pornographic videos from an underage girl. While it is not a crime in Japan to simply possess child porn, the police decided in this case that the law had been violated—because the employee had requested the videos thus causing them to be made.

The 39-year-old suspect is said to have met the 13-year-old middle school student online in late August and asked her to send topless photos of herself. The girl complied, emailing four videos and two photos to the man’s phone. The girl’s parents found the photos on her mobile and notified the police in September.

According to his employer, the suspect was in charge of selling memorabilia and other goods to fans, and had never been absent from work without reason.
