OMERS, NY — A Rye Neck High School teacher has been arrested for possessing and receiving child pornography
Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced Wednesday that Nicholas Pagliuca, 65, of Somers, will appear in court Wednesday on child pornography charges.
“As alleged, Nicholas Pagliuca, a teacher at a local high school, tapped into a website full of illegal child pornography to download images and videos,” Bharara said.
“Investigation and prosecution of these crimes are critical in protecting our children,” he said.
Pagliuca is charged with one count of possession of child pornography, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, and one count of receipt of child pornography, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years and a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
According to the complaint, authorities said Pagliuca registered for a 30-day subscription to a website which is a way for individuals to trade child pornography images and videos.
He is alleged to have downloaded hundreds of files containing images and videos of child porn, many of which showed prepubescent children engaged in sexual activity with adults or other children.
