A New York Police Officer was arrested and charged with child porn related charges after being caught with child porn, according to police reports in New York City.
The police sergeant in New York City, with 15 years on the force was arrested Monday and charged in connection with having child pornography on his computer, police said.
Alberto Randazzo, who is 36-years-old, was accused of using a child in a sexual act, promoting sexual performance of a child and possessing a sexual performance of a child, police said.
The cops found child pornography on a computer belonging to Randazzo, but it was unclear whether it was a personal computer or one belonging to the police department. Police sources said that detectives have no evidence that the sergeant had any physical contact with a child.
Randazzo, who lives in Queens, joined the NYPD in 1998. He has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the criminal proceedings against him.
