Queens Man Busted For Possessing Child Porn, Following Discovery by Best Buy Technician

April 9, 2014 By Christian Murray

A 61-year-old East Elmhurst man was charged today for possessing child pornography.

The defendant, Michael Murray, was arrested after police discovered that he had several graphic images of children on his laptop.

Murray was caught after he took his computer to Best Buy at 50-01 Northern Boulevard to be repaired. When the technician booted up the laptop to fix it, he discovered a screen saver that showed 15 images of young girls posing provocatively or engaging in sex acts with adult men.

“The defendant is alleged to have had some very disturbing photographs of children being sexually abused on his computer,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement. “These photographs depict real children who will no doubt be emotionally and physically scarred for the rest of their lives.”

Murray is presently awaiting arraignment in Queens Criminal Court in Kew Gardens and is charged with 15 counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child. He faces up to four years in prison.

Brown said that when detectives went to Murray’s home he admitted that he knew what was on his screen saver.

At anonymous . Sad state of affairs to see that Rego is going to be the newest leader of the Sunnyside chamber of commerce. Is their no background check??? He may appear to be a NICE guy but there are a lot more people who could be a better represantve for Sunnyside. S he the man who owns pronto car service? Maybe Sunnyside residents should talk to the people who work for him!
