Police: Child Porn Found in Smithtown Man's Computer, iPhone

New York State Police search the man's home May 1; to be arraigned in Suffolk Criminal Court.

New York State Police have arrested a Smithtown man who was found with digital photos and videos with underage children performing sexual acts, according to police.

Police said Sean Murphy, 27, of Smithtown, was arrested after they received a cyber tip through the Internet Crime Against Children hotline, showing he was in possession of the photos and videos, identified through his computer account. Murphy's home was investigated in May 1 after police obtained a search warrant where an iPhone, several computers and computer storage mediums were searched, and the search from the Computer Crimes Units found photos and files, police said.

Police said Murphy knew none of the children depicted in the files.

Murphy was charged with multiple counts of possessing sexual performance by a child less than 16-years-old, and will be arraigned at Suffolk Criminal Court.

What makes the entire situation more horrible is the fact that this man lives down the road from an elementary school. Until he is a convicted sex offender, he can remain There unknown. Thank you to news media for atleast making it known where these people live so we can protect our children.

Why is it the schools responsibility to notify you?

He has not been convicted yet, or reported into the system after serving time. Also, by Suffolk County law, he has to be at least 1/4 mile away from schools and parks. Because Lilac and Rose are so long, he will automatically be at least 3/8 mile away from Forest Brook. Show your kids his picture and point out the house. Sad to say, but other than that, you have to hope your kids show good judgment.
