Novato Police Help Solve Child Porn Case

A San Rafael man is accused of downloading pornographic images featuring children at a friend's house in Sausalito.

By Bay City News Service: 

A San Rafael man was arrested this week for allegedly using a friend's Internet connection to download child pornography, Sausalito police said Thursday. 

Detective Amy Yardly of the Novato Police Department and the Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Children task force told Sausalito police that child pornography had been downloaded by a computer in Sausalito in September of last year, Sausalito police said. 

Sausalito police officers searched the residence and its computers but found no child pornography. The residents gave police a list of houseguests who had access to their Internet connection, Sausalito police said. 

Through that list, Sausalito police Detective Brian Mather tracked down Mark Magner, 32, of San Rafael and concluded he had downloaded the pornography, police said. 

Police searched Magner's computer and allegedly found multiple videos and pictures of children involved in sexual acts, police said.

Magner met with Sausalito police Tuesday and was arrested on suspicion of possession of obscene matter involving juveniles and children. He was booked into Marin County Jail, police said.

Scum. They will take care of him in prison.

He hasnt been convicted yet. Im sorry to say that the dismal track record for successful prosecutions these days would not lead one to believe he will go to prison, especially if its his first such offense. Likely will plead to something in exchange for lesser punishment, probation and registration. Thats the way the illegals do it, and now they dont even get transferred to ICE, thanks to liberal politicians, they are back out in no time, masturbating in playgrounds and worse.

VERY confusing writing! Was the child in Sausalito? Was the San Rafael man in Sausalito? Who took the pictures, and where were they found? Perhaps someone needs to go back to Journalism school to learn how to construct a sentence! What was the involvement of the Silly Vally group, was this a sting? Perhaps the porn was supplied by the forces as entrapment. This story stibks whether it is all true or not!
