CNBC Child Porn Convict Collins Faced 78 Months But Gets 18 With Sealed Submission

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 18 – Raymond Reid Collins, formerly of CNBC, was being sentenced for child porn on May 18. Inner City Press covered it, and heard that the sealed pre-sentencing report said tip was from CNBC, "Reid's employer" - but in fact it was from DropBox.

    The Assistant US Attorney was asking for a below guidelines sentence.

    The Complaint said Collins signed up for the DropBox account as "Reid Collins" at "Company-1 in New York New York - now identified as CNBC. Found were 2100 files "involving infants and toddlers."

    Now defense counsel Ed Bilinkas said Collins has asthma, that his client has lost his well paying job (at CNBC) and may lose his house. "This case occurred two years before law enforcement became aware."  Again, his sentencing memo has been filed under seal.  Inner City Press is considering challenging that, unless it is unredacted.

   Collins said, "I will never, even come back to prison." 

   Judge Nathan said that while the guidelines range started at 78 months, she intended to go substantially below, as the US Attorney suggested. She said, He is unlikely to recidivate... He stopped well before law enforcement found out. The Second Circuit has said sentences must be individualized. In this case, I impose 18 months imprisonment and five years of supervised release.

The case is US v. Collins, 19-cr-665 (Nathan).
