Report: Patchogue Man Nabbed On Child Porn Charges

Homeland Security agents arrest Kevin O'Connell, an administrator with the Roosevelt School District.

A Patchogue man who works as an administrator with the Roosevelt School District was arrested Tuesday and charged with receiving child pornography, according to a report in Newsday that cited a complaint filed by a Homeland Security agent.

Kevin O’Connell, was taken into custody at his home after agents executed a search warrant Tuesday. The Newsday report said agents traced an Internet address advertising three video files available for sharing to O’Connell’s home.

According to the complaint cited by Newsday, a preliminary investigation of computer equipment in O’Connell’s home “has confirmed the presence of numerous videos of apparent child pornography.”

The report said O’Connell is a former assistant principal at Copiague High School and a former principal at Bellport High School.

He was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at U.S. District Court in Central Islip.

This is the man that several South Country school board members vouched for as an honest, caring man with integrity. I wonder what Powell, Grossman, Mistler and Morales will do now?

This is the THIRD SCUMBAG that worked in our local school districts to be arrested on CHILD PORN CHARGES this school year! What the hell is happening? I think that EVERY PTA and SCHOOL BOARD needs to call a meeting in their respective districts to address this ASAP!

Joe Truesldier, You just couldn't stop yourself from making a comment which reveals your stupidity to everyone, could you?

that is an insulting comment and i have not a clue what it infers as a lifelong Patchogue resident - if you are from this area, are you describing people you associate with who are less than scrupulous and honest - u need to back up specifics with comments such as these - not all Patchogians are criminals or didn't you know that?

We have a clerk up at Patchogue Village Hall who stole almost $200,000 of taxpayer dollars but is getting off with just probation and partial restitution. She is also allowed to collect her pension because the Board allowed her to resign instead of firing her. She doesn't live in Patchogue....she just stole from us. I hope this guy gets a much stiffer sentence than our Clerk did.
