|Steven Marks ( Broward Sheriff's Office )|
Broward Sheriff's Office deputies executed a search warrant at Steven Marks' Sunrise home after his computer address was tracked down for allegedly advertising and sharing child porn images.
What they found were several files of child pornography on his computer, as well as CDs and DVDs with child porn movies. The porn was labeled under "Guitar Lessons," "Jimi Hendrix," and "John Coltrane."
Marks now faces 40 counts of possessing child pornography and possession of marijuana and has been held on $100,000 bail during his first appearance court hearing today.
A BSO detective, and member of the South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, launched the investigation that led to Marks' home.
Cops found two computers and a stash of DVDs filled with child pornography that were made between September 2007 through July of this year.
According to the BSO's report, detectives arrived at Marks' door, who was at home with his mother at the time, with a search warrant. Police tracked down Marks after he allegedly shared child porn images on line and requested images be sent to him.
Marks, who is a car salesman, covered his face as soon as the cops told him they had a warrant and told them he knew why they were there. He then reportedly said "My life is over" before requesting to speak with his attorney, according to the report.
The victims in the videos confiscated by the BSO from Marks' home are boys between the ages of 6 and 15 and are shown engaged in sexual acts with other children and men, according to the report.
