    Jay Lockett Sears Faces Child Porn Charge; Community Shocked

    Sears was known as a local philanthropist, who, through his "Mission of Kindness," set out to help local families and children in need.




    Westhampton Beach and Quogue community members were shocked to learn that Jay Lockett Sears, a man who touted his dedication to children through a Quogue-based nonprofit organization, Mission of Kindness, was arrested and charged with one count of child pornography by the FBI on Friday.
    According to a report on Newsday, Sears, who also owns the architectural firm Sears & Sears, and has designed showcase homes for Michael J. Fox and Susan Lucci, allegedly took photos of young girls at Hamptons parties and local establishments and superimposed their headshots on pornographic materials.
    The practice is called "morphing" and is considered pornography.
    Sears was taken into custody after some of the photos were found in a garbage container at the Brookhaven transfer station. An investigation revealed that the photos orginated from Sears' East Moriches home, the report stated.
    For years, Sears lived in Quogue, where his public image was one of a life spent helping others, bringing food to the homeless in Hampton Bays motels in the 1990s and most recently, reaching out to help children through his Mission of Kindness organization.
    As news of Sears' arrest spread, shock waves rocked the community.
    "What a shock," said Speonk resident Lisa Fox. "As for the families of these children, it's a heartbreaker. Imagine that an innocent photo of your child frolicking at a beach party turns into a pornographic image. This saddens and sickens me at the same time. The fact the parents have to contact the authorities to see if their child's precious face could be super-imposed is disgusting.This is another break of trust."
    Terry Lucas, a Westhampton Beach mother of two girls, agreed. "I'm disillusioned," she said.
    Kay Kidde, a founder of the Maureen's Haven homeless outreach program, who attends Westhampton Presbyterian Church, where Sears is a member, said she did not know Sears well, but had crossed paths with him through their charitable organizations.
    "This is horrifying," she said.
    "My daughter Brittany said it best. How can you believe in humanity if this is true?" Terrie Bauer of Westhampton Beach asked. "I myself have worked with Jay for years and have a really hard time believing any of it. If it is true I am sickened."
    Added East Quogue resident Kathy Tureski, "I could not believe it. I'm shocked."
    Hampton Bays resident Allen Schneider agreed. "Shocked is the best way to describe it."
    In recent years, Lockett has taken out ads in local publications -- wearing a famous white suit and sporting an angel's white wings -- and sent letters to local editors, asking for help with his Mission of Kindness, and for a 12-year-old girl who had undergone many operations, whom he said had a "bright, beautiful light."
    College student Vincent Cinque said Sears had come to speak to his class when he was a child about his philanthropic efforts. He said he was not surprised to hear of Sears' arrest.
    "When he came to talk to us back in elementary school, he was just plain creepy," he said.
    Lockett is due to appear in court in Central Islip at 2 p.m. on Monday for a bail hearing.

    possession is illegal. the question is, how did anyone know he had them in order to charge him?

    so they weren't found on his property or person? i bet it gets dismissed. finding photos in a public trashcan is probably insufficient probably cause to search his property.

    I'll preface this by saying I'm not a lawyer, but I did drop out of law school, so I know my head from my ass at least a little bit. Anywho, simulated underage content is the same as the real deal. This has been upheld consistently since CG animation got going and pervs tried circulating that stuff. Dawg was 100% right to be pissed about people posting the anime stuff on here; we have a far broader definition of what qualifies in this country than Japan, it's just that for whatever reason no DA or the FBI have decided to make going after it a priority.

    Obviously this guy is a disgusting perv. But, if I had to guess, I say he gets off with a good lawyer.

    It's very sketchy, to be honest. If they can get a witness who says that they personally saw him throw it away (whether they really did or not) then they could establish probable cause. Unfortunately for him (but good for society IMHO) judges don't tend to give child pornographers the benefit of the doubt when compared to a guy who threw his joint in the trash when he saw a cop round the corner.

    yeah but i think he has enough money to get the right legal team to get it thrown out because the evidence sounds like it was acquired illegally. he can afford a dream team.

    You're probably right, the question is whether they offer (and he accepts) a plea deal. In situations like this, it's common to let the accused plead guilty and register as a sex offender (sometimes even accept a lifetime ban from the Internet) while avoiding jail time.

    My guess is they were found in trash so that opens up investigation. Investigation yields enough info to warrant forensic computer checks. These pics were manufactured by his computer. It's porn and it's underage. They will charge him per image.

    I agree. That's pretty fucking thin and there's probably 100 ways a defense attorney could argue about a public trash bin.

    I'm not so sure about that. The SCOTUS ruled that simulated child pornography was protected under the 1st Amendment.

    http://articles.cnn.com/2002-04-16/...n-beauty-sexually-explicit-activity?_s=PM:LAW

    The thing that might do this guy in is the fact that he used the faces of real children and real adult bodies. The PROTECT Act of 2003 made it illegal to possess, promote or produce any realistic depiction of child porn that can't be distinguished from the real thing.
