CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. – A man dubbed "Long Island's Favorite Magician" has pleaded not guilty to a 78-count indictment accusing him of possessing child porn and secretly videotaping a mother and her daughters.
Robert Infantino was ordered held on $150,000 bail Tuesday. He was arrested last month. The woman, and her 10- and 14-year-old daughters, said they went to Infantino's home-office for a photo shoot and found a camera hidden in the dressing room.
Prosecutors said they later found child pornography on a computer seized from Infantino's house.
His attorney said cameras were deployed for security purposes.
Said Marc Gann: "There was never an intent to violate anybody's rights, or the law."
