(Newser) – More disturbing details are emerging about this week's huge child-porn bust in the New York City area, including these: a dad secretly filmed his son's friend, 9, when she changed to go swimming; a nurse had 19 videos of kids under 13 having sex with adults, authorities say. Another man, whose father was deported in 2008 after flying to Chicago in hopes of having sex with a 14-year-old girl, is charged with having images of girls as young as six, the Journal News reports.

As for the Boy Scout leader and Little League coach, Jonathan Silber, 42, authorities say an IP address connected to the father of two was used to distribute child pornography online. "Surprised? I was shocked," said one of Silber's neighbors. "He's always got kids at his house. He's very active in the community … I would never have any suspicion that anything wasn't normal." Others charged in "Operation Caireen" (a nod to the protector and patron of kids in Celtic mythology) include a mother charged with producing pornography involving her own child, USA Today reports.
