A pediatric nurse was jailed Wednesday for allegedly possessing child pornography on his home computer after coming to the attention of a national group that tracks exploitation of children, State Police said.
B. Lee Wilson, 43, was charged with a felony count of possessing a sexual performance of a child, in the form of computer images, police said.
Wilson has worked for nine years at Albany Medical Center Hospital, the last four as a licensed practical nurse in the pediatric unit, said spokeswoman Trooper Maureen Tuffey. Police have no evidence "at this point" of any abuse of children in the hospital, she said.
"We don't even have evidence of him taking any pictures," she said. "We have evidence of him receiving and passing on child pornography."
Wilson was suspended from his job last week "when we learned of the situation," and that he was under investigation, Albany Med spokesman Greg McGarry said. "We haven't had any complaints or incidents related to his work here at the Medical Center."
Tuffey said Wilson's other service at the hospital consisted of work as a nursing assistant and as an orderly before he was certified as an LPN.
The arrest on Tuesday followed the execution of a search warrant at Wilson's home earlier this week by investigators from Troop G headquarters in Loudonville. The Computer Crime Unit seized Wilson's personal computer as well as computer software, Tuffey said. After an arraignment Wednesday before City Court Judge John C. Egan Jr., Wilson was sent to the county jail.
The probe was initiated by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, based in Alexandria, Va., Tuffey said.
"Part of their job with the exploited children half is not only do they receive a lot of tips but they go through Web sites and check them out" she said.
"Child pornography flourished with the use of computers," Tuffey said.
