Ex-Nassau Probation Officer Nabbed for Child Porn

A 60-year-old former Nassau County probation officer has been accused of sharing child pornography over the Internet from a computer in his Massapequa home six months ago.

Gordon Woolf was arrested on federal child porn charges after Department of Homeland Security agents executed a search warrant at his house Tuesday, according to the criminal complaint investigators filed in the case.

“It’s not right,” Woolf allegedly told the agents while indicating that it was “the only thing that [aroused him]” but he deleted the images after he downloaded them, he is quoted as saying in the court documents.

Investigators started looking into Woolf after noticing a computer bearing his IP address sharing child porn online in January, the documents say.

Woolf allegedly told investigators that he has watched child porn for the past decade by searching the term “13 year old” at night after taking his medication.

The files investigators found included girls as young as 9, authorities said.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York said Woolf remained in custody Wednesday.
