Ex-TSA officer charged with making child pornography
A former Transportation Security Administration officer remains in federal custody after he was arrested on charges of making child pornography.
Christopher Persky faces 15 to 30 years in prison if convicted.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Mary Milloy ordered that Persky remain jailed pending a hearing set for Wednesday.
On Monday evening, the TSA said in an email that Persky, 27, “has been removed from federal employment.”
An undercover Homeland Security Investigations agent allegedly snared Persky through an online chat that started on a child pornography site.
Persky allegedly took sexually explicit photographs and shared them in exchange for other images.
Likes kiddy porn and works at a job with federal civil service protection, great pay and benefits to fondle children. What could possibly go wrong.
