‘Long Island’s Favorite Magician’ Pleads Guilty on 64 Counts of Child Pornography


Suffolk County photographer Robert Ifantino, 52, pleaded guilty today to 44 counts of unlawful surveillance and 64 counts of child pornography, reports the Post. The charges came after police discovered he’d hidden a video camera in the dressing room of a photo studio in his Central Islip home. He’d videotape women and little girls with it, and investigators found “hundreds of images” of them undressing and dressing on his hard drive. Fittingly (because they always do), the man had a parallel career as “Bob Infantino, Long Island’s Favorite Magician.” Presto, change-o!
