October 26, 2016

HAUPPAUGE, LONG ISLAND (AP) — A Long Island day camp employee has been charged in a 112 indictment that accuses him of sexually abusing an 11-year-old boy and possessing a massive collection of child pornography.

Keith Meyn, of Oakdale, pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Suffolk County court. Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.

Prosecutors say the 34-year-old man was employed at Camp Kenwal in Melville as a group leader and counselor. A telephone message left with the camp afterhours was not immediately returned. Meyn also worked for two modeling agencies and a film company.

Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota says Meyn participated in the crimes involving children for over a decade. Spota says Meyn helped distribute photographs and video featuring young boys.

If convicted of all charges, he faces 50 years in prison.
