Astoria man, 23, sentenced to 1 to 3 years in prison for possessing child porn

June 12, 2017 By Christian Murray

A 23-year-old Astoria man who uploaded thousands of images and videos of children being sexually abused was sentenced to one to three years in prison today, according to the Queens District Attorney’s Office.

Charles Flores, of 38th Street, pleaded guilty to charges of “possessing a sexual performance by a child” in April after being arrested last September.

“The defendant admitted when pleading guilty that his curiosity led to a sick obsession,” District Attorney Richard A.  Brown said. “Photos and videos of children being molested and abused are for all intents and purposes crime scene images.”

The police caught up with Flores after receiving a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about images that had been sent to his charlesf20@gmail account.

Flores admitted that this was his e-mail address and investigators then found 20 images of prepubescent children between the ages of five and 12 being vaginally and anally penetrated by adult males on his external hard drive.

Further investigation of Flores’ electronic devices turned up hundreds of videos and images of children as young as four.

Flores initially told police he began searching for child pornography to help his girlfriend, a statement Brown’s office said it did not know the meaning of.
