Boca Raton teenager Eric S. Zelesnick has been arrested and charged with eleven counts of child porn.


The arrest comes after a joint investigation by the Special Victims Unit and the Boynton Beach Police Department. These units use a sophisticated computerized data-mining and tracking program to identify, investigate and prosecute “super-predators” who are abusing child victims in Palm Beach County.

Zelesnick,19, was charged with 11 Counts of Possession of Material Depicting Sexual Performance of a Child; all are third degree felonies which carry a maximum penalty of 5 years in prison.

The probable cause affidavit says that videos on Zelesnick’s computer showed adults having sex with prepubescent children.

At his first appearance, Zelesnick’s bond was set at $25,000 and he must have no access to computers, PDA’s or any devices that would be capable of going online.  Additionally, if the defendant is released on bond, he must report to house arrest within 48 hours.
