Queens police officer accused of child pornography

Anyone can be charged with sex crimes, but it is especially shocking when a police officer -- someone who has a duty to uphold the law -- is accused of viewing and sharing videos of children engaging in sexual acts. That was what recently happened to a New York police officer. He has been arrested and now faces child pornography charges.

The 34-year-old New York City officer is facing seven counts of promoting and possessing sexual performances of minors after a police investigation found the videos on his computer. It is believed that the man not only viewed the content but also shared it with others. He is accused of downloading various clips that were sexually explicit in nature. They included underage girls performing sex acts on themselves and with adult men.

To many people, simply viewing pornography may seem innocent enough. However, possession of child pornography is a sex crime that can cause damage to one's reputation and personal and professional lives. It can also give a person the title of sex offender and force the person to register on a sex offender registry.

If the allegations are true, the police officer could face jail time and other penalties. There is, however, the possibility that the man is not guilty. Just because someone is charged with a crime does not automatically mean that he or she is guilty. Sometimes graphic videos can be put on a computer by another party in order to frame the person and get him or her into trouble. It's important to understand that false accusations do happen.
