Ozone Park DJ charged with child pornography

An Ozone Park disc jockey was arraigned last week on child pornography charges after he allegedly uploaded videos on the Internet showing a 4-year-old girl involved in a sex act and an instructional clip on how to molest minors, Queens DA Richard Brown said.

Dominick Guerra, 29, of 104-16 106th St. in Ozone Park, faces up to seven years in prison if convicted on charges of possessing a sexual performance of a child and promoting a sexual performance by a child, Brown said.

Guerra was arrested after a detective with the Wheaton, Ill., Police Department conducting an Internet investigation of child porn discovered two videos allegedly uploaded by the Ozone Park man onto Limewire, a file-sharing site on the Web, according to the DA.

One of the videos showed a girl "approximately 4 years old performing a sex act on an adult male," Brown said, while the other "gives advice on how to sexually abuse minors and examples of such abuse."

"The charges are very disturbing," Brown said in a statement. "There is a national connection to this case, which frighteningly shows the far reach of the Internet in dispensing child pornography. It is imperative that we vigorously prosecute this case so that our children remain safe from predators who share information to carry out their depraved acts."

Queens Criminal Court Judge William Harrington ordered Guerra held on $100,000 bail April 17, Brown said.

A DA spokesman said he was unsure whether Guerra, who works as a DJ for weddings and parties, posted bail.

If Guerra is able to meet bail, he would have to stay off the Internet, give up his passport and never leave Queens, Brown said.
