Two online tipsters told state police that Timothy Holt, 44, of Baldwin, sent child pornography over the Internet last month.

Cops seized the divorced father’s computer and allegedly found nine videos and pictures depicting sexually explicit images of children.

Holt, who pleaded not guilty to felony child-pornography raps on Friday, worked as a third-grade teacher’s assistant at the Birch Elementary School in Merrick and taught Earth science at Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim and Yeshiva Tiferes Torah.

“We are shocked and saddened by these charges,” said a Yeshiva Chofetz representative who would not give his name.

State Police Inspector Carlos Ramos said there was no evidence that Holt had inappropriate contact with any of his students but he’s been fired from all three school

That's why it's so important to have mandatory fingerprinting and background checks for all yeshiva employees. We have no idea who is teaching our children and who has access to them on a daily basis, r"l.

Of course, if this was the 1st time he was caught, mandatory fingerprinting wouldn't have helped.

And exactly how DOES a pedophile look or act???

What a chochom you are. Not.

That is exactly why these guys get away with it. They look normal and when a kid complains some idiot says "wow, he doesn't look or act like a pedophile so he isn't one'.

Shmuck. Didn't he know you go to jail for stuff like that if you aren't well connected?

No money, no yichus, no friends amongst the 'askunim. He's going to sit for a long time.

i agree that fingerprinting is very important, but what good does it do you if the person being fingerprinted doesnt have a criminal history? there is nothing in the article to indicate that this man did, so fingerprinting him would probably not have thrown up any red flags.

Shoin. Here we go again.

Every time some perverted low life piece of garbage is caught with his hands in little boys' underwear one of his fellow sickos comes onto VIN and blames his ex-wife or his estranged wife.

It just goes to show how much these sicknesses with wanting little children for sex starts with the parents. These guy's all have hang-ups about their mother's and but can't face it so they do the most disgusting, nausiating things to little children to avoid being with an adult woman who might remind them of Mommy and when they get caught, who do they blame it on? The Mommy figure in their life!

Only a fellow pervert, another child molestor who is so screwed up killing him or at least cutting off a few parts of his anatomy would be a chesed for him, only such a person defends these sick pieces of raw sewage.

While I agree with your comments, I didn't read #11 as you did. I thought he wasn't blaming a custody battle/ex-wife, but more like asking if this sicko's predelictions have led to a custody fight between the parents.

Divorce doesn't make a pedophile. Nothing does, they're programmed wrong. Unfortunately, you can't re-program them.

I know the inquiry sounded innocent enough but there are two choices if allegations of pedophilia were made in the divorce litigation: A) See, this is not a new issue with him B) See, it isn't true that he molested a student, his ex-wife made the allegation during the divorce proceedings and now she is doing it again.

Normal people think option A. All the perverts out there go with option B. I believe the writer of post #11 was heading straight into Plan B. These guys start off sounding like they are strictly interested in the truth (which, btw, is exactly the was Holocaust deniers start off the conversation - we just want to get to the historical truth and will accept the Holocaust as truth if we are shown proof, which is of course never up to their standards) and then they say 'I certainly do not support pedophiles but I know the facts in this case and it is all the ex-wife manipulating (after all, we know how evil and manipulative all women are) other people to make these allegations because she is out to destroy him (big, bad evil womenkind are all the same, just ask Mommy).

Fortunately, the charges here are not for abuse. They are for having pictures of child porn. Boys from one of these schools have stated that he did not do anything inapproriate in the classroom environment. This was stictly an "after school activity". He is still a danger to society, but at least the boys have not been harmed.

This man was a science teacher, not a rebbe, and he is not Jewish.
