An East Elmhurst resident, who dropped his computer off at a Best Buy on Northern Boulevard in Long Island City to be repaired, was charged with 15 counts of possession of a sexual performance by a child after an employee found pornographic photos of young girls on his desktop.

According to the charges, on April 1, a technician at Best Buy began to repair a laptop computer that had allegedly been dropped off by Michael Murray, 61, on March 26.

After turning on the computer and booting it up, the technician allegedly saw that the screen saver on the computer was a slide show of multiple images of young girls posing provocatively or engaging in sexual acts with adult men.

Brown said that on April 9, detectives went to Murray’s home and he allegedly admitted that he knew what was on his screen saver and that he has been exchanging files of child pornography with others on the internet for about five years.

If he is convicted, Murray faces up to four years in prison.

Welcome to the discussion.
