Robert A. Singer, National Children’s Museum in Washington Executive Arrested on what else, Child Pornography Charges


What are people thinking? The stories just get worse and more bizarre every day? Children_saveThey read like a bad joke. So what does the COO of the  executive of the National Children’s Museum in Washington get arrested for? The answer: possession and distribution of child porn. Robert Singer sent an undercover detective about 80 explicit images of child pornography from his work and home computers.

The images sent from Singer’s museum computer depicted sexual acts between minors and adults, the complaint said. Singer also sent the daughter two images with instructions to “just delete it when you are done.”

Robert A. Singer has been charged with five counts of distributing child Wtfpornography in interstate commerce.

The chief operating officer of the National Children’s Museum in Washington was arrested Tuesday on child pornography charges, accused of using his work computer to send explicit images to others — including an undercover New York City detective.

Robert A. Singer, 49, was arrested at his home in Falls Church, Va., on charges that he sent the pornographic images to a detective posing as a 33-year-old mother and her 12-year-old daughter, U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia said.

Singer was identified in the criminal complaint as a spokesman for the Capital Children’s Museum, which closed in September 2004 to prepare for renovations. The museum, which plans to reopen in 2012 as the National Children’s Museum, said in a statement that officials were “horrified” by the events. (FOX News)

He is charged with five counts of distributing child pornography in interstate commerce. If convicted on each count, he would face a sentence of up to 140 years in prison — up to 20 years for the first count and up to 40 years for each additional count, prosecutors said.

Singer allegedly initiated contact with the undercover detective, posing as the mother, in an America On Line chat room called “Cuties.” The chat room attracts people who “are known to trade in pornographic images, including child pornography,” according to an affidavit filed in the case by a special agent who investigates child pornography and child exploitation for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
