3,000-Count Indictment Nets 9-Year Prison Sentence For Kiddie-Porn Creep Elvis Infante

by

Queens resident Elvis Infante’s got a pretty extensive collection of videos. Unfortunately for him, they’re all of kids having sex, so he’s heading to prison for a while.

Infante, 35, was sentenced today to up to nine years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple counts of possession of child smut-related charges.

Infante was arrested in December of 2010, after police found his enormous cache of (gulp) child erotica. Initially, he was hit with a 3,000-count indictment after police found more than 1,000 photos of kids having sex, and more than 500 videos.

In August 2010, the NYPD was notified by the New York Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that it had received a tip that someone with the username 3SFORI7SZWOW7 had uploaded 12 images of kiddie-porn to the Ning Social Networking Website.

Ning intercepted the images and turned them over to the National
Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and determined that the user
name was registered to someone with the email address
“XANNXANGELX@hotmail.com,” which is registered to Infante.

In
November 2010, detectives paid Infante a little visit at his Queens
home. An initial search of his computer turned up 80 images of kiddie
porn. A more detailed forensic search uncovered the rest
of the smut.

“In pleading guilty, Infante admitted to possessing on his computer some
very disturbing photographs and videos of children being depicted in a
sexual manner or being sexually abused,” Queens District Attorney
Richard Brown says. “It is important to remember that these images are
actually crime scene photos depicting real children being emotionally
and physically scarred for life. Such cruel acts cannot and will not be
tolerated in a civilized society. As such, the sentence meted out by
the Court is more than warranted.”

In all, Infante pleaded guilty yesterday to promoting a sexual
performance by a child and possessing a sexual performance by a child
before Queens Supreme Court Justice Richard L. Buchter. Butcher handed
down an indeterminate sentence of two to six years in prison on the
promoting charge and a consecutive indeterminate sentence of one to
three years on the possession charge.
