East Elmhurst man pleads guilty to possessing child porn

July 11, 2017 By Jason Cohen

An East Elmhurst man faces three years in prison and must register as a sex offender after pleading guilty to possessing video files of young children performing sex acts and an illegal firearm, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office.

Milton Hilario, 43, of 97th Street in East Elmhurst, pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography and for being in the illegal possession of a weapon. He is likely to be sentenced on Sept. 26 to three years in prison and three years post release supervision, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office. He will also have to register as a sex offender.

According to the charges, the police made contact with Hilario via an IP address last October. On one instance, an investigator observed Hilario share a list of files, one depicting a man sexually abusing a girl who appears to be as young as 8-years old. Another was a video file of a female– believed to be as young as 3–being sexually assaulted as well.

Hilario admitted that he possessed photos and videos depicting children between the approximate age of three to 13-years-old in a sexual performance. He also admitted that he possessed a silver and black 9mm handgun and a magazine, which was loaded with six rounds of ammunition inside his dresser drawer and also.

Queens District Attorney condemned Hilario for his sex crimes.

“It is important for the public to remember that the images and videos being exchanged are, for all intents and purposes, photos and footage of crime scenes as they depict real children being cruelly victimized both physically and emotionally and who will have to carry the painful memory of that which occurred to them for the rest of their lives,” District Attorney Brown said.
