MINEOLA — An FBI investigation that began with the arrest of a suspected child pornographer in Alaska has led to federal charges against a New York state police investigator.

The investigator is assigned to a trooper barracks on Long Island. State police say he has been suspended without pay.

The Rocky Point school district says he was fired Thursday from his other job, as a high school assistant lacrosse coach.

A 13-page criminal complaint says SeanMichael Pagano downloaded several videos involving young girls engaged in sexual acts. His attorney says he has pleaded not guilty.

The videos allegedly came from a suspect in an Alaska child pornography case. That suspect is cooperating with investigators and provided information on those he allegedly dealt with.

So, this is an investigator, not savvy enough to believe he could be investigated himself. This says as much about the NYSP's vetting process as it does about the hubris riddled idiot.
