Videoing Nude Boys at YMCAs Earns Man Forty-Four Years

From the U.S. Attorney:

Chicago Man Sentenced to 22 Years in Federal Prison for Surreptitiously Recording Boys in YMCA Locker Rooms

CHICAGO — A Chicago man has been sentenced to 22 years in federal prison for surreptitiously recording thousands of videos of nude boys inside YMCA lockers rooms.

For approximately two decades, MICHAEL PORTER surreptitiously recorded videos of nude boys inside the locker room at three Chicago-area YMCAs, where Porter was a member. 

Porter placed a video-recording device inside of a bag and then strategically placed the bag on the floor of the locker rooms. 

Porter sexually abused at least one of the boys, capturing the abuse on video.

During the investigation law enforcement seized from Porter six recording devices, seven cameras, 30 USB drives, hundreds of cassette tapes and DVDs, and two laptops. 

Law enforcement discovered in his possession

  • 46,563 images and
  • 44,553 videos depicting child pornography, including approximately 2,245 videos produced by Porter.

Porter, 58, pleaded guilty last year to federal charges of production, receipt, and possession of child pornography.  In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Judge Sara L. Ellis on Thursday ordered Porter to pay $63,500 in restitution to victims.

The sentence was announced by Morris Pasqual, Acting United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois; and Robert W. “Wes” Wheeler, Jr., Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago Field Office of the FBI.  Valuable assistance was provided by the Cook County Sheriff’s Police Department.

“Michael Porter was a prolific manufacturer and collector of child pornography,” Assistant U.S. Attorneys Kristen Totten and Elly M. Peirson argued in the government’s sentencing memorandum.  “Regardless of whether these images will ever surface again, the victims will live with the trauma imposed upon them by the defendant for the rest of their lives.”

  1. How can that be, it doesn’t mention if he’s trans.
    Maybe he’s a priest.

  2. I keep a pair of white jocky’s in a plastic bag, that I’ve smeared with peanut butter, I display whenever someone is sitting in the locker room pretending to be on their phone.

  3. Yet Tom Pritzker roams free after being on pedo Epsteins Lolita Express repeatedly. How is that? Oh, nevermind. The FBI is on top of it like the Biden Crime Family corruption.

  4. “Yet Tom Pritzker roams free after being on pedo Epsteins Lolita Express repeatedly. How is that? Oh, nevermind.” Yeah and Trumpty Dumpty too. Oh, never mind.

  5. Also Lil Joey, acceptance of pedophilia is normal which you obviously espouse? What an Einstein you are.

    And Porkboy, tell us all you know about using someone’s jet 1 time to fly from FL back to NY proves? It’s a good thing the media gives you the whole story.

  6. Acceptance? Where did I say I accept it? Cant read can ya? Einstein.

    So apparently I have to bang on a drum, say the same stuff over and over, on a pathetic blog, to claim my stance, like you do. You are total fool. Who is reading what your posting that cares or that can make a difference dreamer.

  7. Ah, looks like I’ve finally found the guy that bangs that echoey drum in all those theatre movie trailers.

    Joseph must be exhausted.

  8. Joe, JT lives in an alternate reality. i.e. he’s just nuts.

  9. Mellow, your day is coming. CWII.

    A fine pip for a little perv.

    Ye serve the devil, and will soon descend to him.

    Woe to you.

  10. Cal. I hope you are enjoying the triggering you created by posting this story. I’m laughing at your resident trolls being triggered.

    Let’s revisit Porkboy and Lil Joey Snowflake in their pride parade. I think Porkboy is trying spank the gerbil out of Lil Joey’s sphincter

  11. I miss the Latin Gregorian chanting, bleeding statues and fear.

    Now all I get is nurd folk festival, hand-holding boredom.

    Millennials ruined everything.

  12. Felcher JT loves talking about other men’s sphincters. Every article JT has to mention Epstein, anuses, or some sort of homoeroticism. Get help sport.

  13. He who protests too much proves he/she is the guy being whipped in front of children in the back of a pick up truck.

    What else you got TROLL?
