West Babylon Man Faces Child Porn Charges

Suffolk Police say a 42-year-old NYPD auxiliary officer allegedly traded child pornography images online.

A West Babylon man is under arrest and charged with possessing and promoting child pornography, according to Suffolk Police.

Patrick Steiner, 42, is facing five felony counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child and five felony counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child, states a police report.

Police said the arrest made Monday morning was the result of an undercover investigation of individuals who were trading child pornography online. Steiner has served as a sergeant within the New York Police Department auxiliary unit, according to a police press statement.

Police say Steiner is also associated with Starlight Entertainment, a disc jockey music service that provides entertainment at parties and special events. He was held overnight last night for scheduled arraignment today at First District Court in Central Islip.

Anyone with additional information for detectives is asked to call the Computer Crimes Unit at 631-852-6279 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
