A former Boy Scout leader on Long Island is under arrest on child porn charges

23-year-old Edward Orenchuk III  faces up to seven years in prison if convicted. The Nassau County District Attorney’s Office has charged him with three counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child as a sexually motivated felony and three counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child. He’s being held in lieu of $100,000 bail and will be back in court on Dec. 17

Police say that not only did Orenchuk have hundreds of images of children on his computer, he put some of them on the Internet. Some of the children in the images were as young as 5.

Orenchuk worked as a page at the Garden City Public Library until the probe came to light and was also an assistant scoutmaster at Troop 243 in Garden City until the Boy Scouts were notified of the matter.
