MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- A Mount Vernon man and former teacher at Westchester Day School in Mamaroneck was charged with  possession and receipt of child pornography.

Lyle Kamlet, 62, is charged with one count of receiving child pornography, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, and one count of possessing child pornography, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. Both counts also carry a maximum fine of $250,000 or twice the gross gain or loss from the offense.

Kamlet was arrested Friday, Jan. 30. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Lisa Margaret Smith. Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Philip R. Bartlett, Inspector-in-Charge of the New York Office of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service announced the arrest.

According to the allegations in the criminal complaint unsealed on Friday in White Plains federal court, from 2008 through 2010, on a number of occasions, Kamlet ordered child pornography videos – some of which he directed to be mailed to the school where he was then employed.

During a search of his residence, law enforcement seized those videos and also found home movies that he had created that contained images of naked children.

The prosecution is being overseen by the Office’s White Plains Unit. Assistant United States Attorney John P. Collins, Jr., is in charge of the prosecution.
