Magician Secretly Photographed Girls, Say Police


Police identify child pornography on computer:

A well known magician from New York has been arrested after police say he placed hidden cameras in his photo studio to tape a mother and her two young daughter as they undressed.

Robert Infantino, 50, of Central Isip, appeared in court earlier today and was ordered held on $180,000 cash bail.

Police said the mother and her two daughters, ages 10 and 14, arrived at Infantino's studio in hopes for a "free photo shoot".

Apparently, Infantino's magic stopped somewhere between peeping tom and all around pervert when one of the victims discovered a hidden camera while undressing in the changing room.

After finding the hidden device, the trio did their own little magic trick on "Long Islands Favorite Magician", they made him disappear.

Now Infantino must try his hardest trick yet...getting out of jail!

That might be a little hard for him to do anyway, because police say after recovering his computer they found images of child pornography on it.

On his website entitled "The Magic is You," Infantino list his television appearances, including appearing on "America's Funniest People" where he ultimately won the grand prize. His other site, "Plain Old Bob" has plenty of links for your viewing pleasure.

Besides the above MySpace profile, he also maintained two others which can be found here and here.

UPDATE: Infantino arrested again

  1. Seems he couldn't make his child porn charges disappear. His bond is now set at a cool 2 million.
