At his plea hearing, Carlino stated that on Mar. 17, 2009, law enforcement officers searched his home and seized two computers which belonged to him and which contained images of child pornography. Carlino admitted that he downloaded these images from e-mails sent to him by others and from various internet sites.
The images were of people under 18 years of age engaged in sexually explicit conduct, Carlino admitted.
And this where it gets all too real…
According to the Complaint, all 134 of the images involve the same prepubescent female, who is a known victim (that is, a real child who has been identified by law enforcement officers and entered into the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children "NCMEC" database), and who was known to be approximately 9 years old at the time the images were taken.
10 years in Prison seems like a small price to pay. It really does.
Did I mention he was a youth pastor?
