Vitaly Borker, Manhattan Beach Cyber-Bully, Charged For Possessing Child Pornography

We just got wind of this story and, though we may be  a bit late, we wanted to report on the latest for Vitaly Borker, local internet thug.

Borker was busted for bashing customers who emailed him to complain about the counterfeit sunglasses on his website in May of last year. In response, he made vulgar and violent threats in emails, on forums, via phone and more.

“I was answering personally about 100 e-mails a day and lost control of what I was saying at times,” he said.

On June 8, he was charged for the child pornography found on his home computers at the time of the investigation.

During the cyber bully bust, police seized several hard drives from his Beaumont Street home in Manhattan Beach. Later, when the drives were scanned, police found photographs of various minors engaged in sexual acts.

He is charged with 60 counts of possessing images of a sexual performance by a child and two counts of possessing images of an obscene sexual performance by a child, according to the New York Daily News. If convicted, he will serve up to 1 1/3 to 4 years for each charge.

Additionally, he will serve at least three years in prison for the internet terrorizing of his customers.

Correction (3:35 p.m.): The original headline on this story mistakenly noted that Borker was convicted of possessing the child pornography. At this point in time he has only been charged. Sheepshead Bites sincerely regrets any confusion this may have caused.
