Jacob Schwartz, a 29-year-old prominent young Democrat and employee in the administration of New York City’s ultra-liberal Mayor Bill de Blasio has been arrested for allegedly possessing child pornography involving girls as young as 6 months old.
Schwartz was caught for allegedly keeping more than 3,000 sickening pictures and 89 videos on his computer after downloading the kiddie porn from the Internet, New York Post reported.
The content of the pictures has been revealed to contain young nude females between the approximate ages of 6 months and 16, engaging in sexual conduct with an adult male.
One of the protuberant labor lawyer and Democratic Party insider, Arthur Schwartz, said that his son’s case is a personal tragedy.
Arthur Schwartz, who is Jacob Schwartz’s father, said that he understands the charges are serious, adding that his son had already sought therapy over the issue. Reports indicate that Schwartz gave in his laptop containing child pornography to the investigators.
Court papers reveal that Jacob Schwartz has been under investigation since the end of March after he surrendered his laptop and gave police the permission to search it. The incident has tarnished the reputation of the young Democrat who is the president of the Manhattan Young Democrats and the downstate region vice president of the New York State Young Democrats.
