Sept. 08, 2015 -- Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore announced that Michael Eisenberg (DOB 05/07/86) of 1 Park Avenue, Eastchester, New York was sentenced today to an indeterminate term of three to six years in state prison after previously pleading guilty to:

  • one count of Promoting an Obscene Sexual Performance by a Child, a class “D” Felony
  • one count of Possessing an Obscene Sexual Performance by a Child, a class “E” Felony.

On Feb. 4, 2015 investigators from the District Attorney’s office received a Cyber Tip Report from the New York State Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force. They traced the computer’s IP Address to a location in Westchester County where images containing child pornography had been downloaded.

Among the images downloaded were prepubescent girls in various stages of undress with adult males also not wearing any clothing.                      

On Feb. 12, 2015 investigators from this office along with members of the Eastchester Police Department executed a search warrant on the defendant’s apartment.

The following items were recovered:

  • 17 thumb drives containing child pornography,
  • the defendant’s current cellphone containing child pornography,
  • 2 laptops containing child pornography,
  • 3 external hard drives of which two contained child pornography.

In total over seven thousand images were discovered.

Eisenberg was placed under arrest by investigators from the District Attorney’s Office.

As the defendant has a previous felony conviction, his sentence was enhanced because of his previous felon status.

Upon completion of his sentence, Eisenberg will have to register as a sex offender.

Assistant District Attorney Laura Forbes of the High Technology Crime Bureau prosecuted the case.
