We just got wind of this story and, though we may be  a bit late, we wanted to report on the latest for Vitaly Borker, local internet thug.

Borker was busted for bashing customers who emailed him to complain about the counterfeit sunglasses on his DecorMyEyes.com website in May of last year. In response, he made vulgar and violent threats in emails, on forums, via phone and more.

“I was answering personally about 100 e-mails a day and lost control of what I was saying at times,” he said.

On June 8, he was charged for the child pornography found on his home computers at the time of the investigation.

During the cyber bully bust, police seized several hard drives from his Beaumont Street home in Manhattan Beach. Later, when the drives were scanned, police found photographs of various minors engaged in sexual acts.

He is charged with 60 counts of possessing images of a sexual performance by a child and two counts of possessing images of an obscene sexual performance by a child, according to the New York Daily News. If convicted, he will serve up to 1 1/3 to 4 years for each charge.

Additionally, he will serve at least three years in prison for the internet terrorizing of his customers.

Correction (3:35 p.m.): The original headline on this story mistakenly noted that Borker was convicted of possessing the child pornography. At this point in time he has only been charged. Sheepshead Bites sincerely regrets any confusion this may have caused.

    he wasn’t convicted, he was charged – way different!

      By no means am I condoning child pornography, but I am concerned that the law can bust into your house and you can be arrested for something confined solely to one’s personal hard drive. 

         As usual, I’m concerned with the ramifications of such government power. Will Bloomberg break into my house if I’m drinking a 32oz sugar drink?  How about if I have vulgar or even racist jokes on my computer?

         As we continue to see, once government gains momemtum, it’s not easy to stop.

          Still, I’m glad they got this guy.

        We hear about the ones that get caught with the material on their computers. In the meantime, the ones that took the photographs and run the websites go free.

        And even more interesting. He will get 1½ years for each count of having child pornography. But it appears that the sentencing for multiple counts of harassment were treated as one charge.

        I think it became inclusive once he threatened people on the internet. If the threats were on his hard drive….Oh well.

      You are absolutely correct, and we have changed the article to reflect that. Our sincerest apologies.

    It’s irrelevant that it was confined solely to his hard drive. Mere possession of such material is illegal. 

    Plus with him, the government didn’t have to conduct any covert operation to obtain this material. It was collected pursuant to a valid subsequent charge, so he basically handed it over himself.

    Idiot. He deserves everything he has coming to him.

      correction – valid previous charge.

    Wow, Vitaly Borker will have even more time to enjoy with BUBBA.  

    It’s painful just thinking about it.
