In April, the Sheriff’s Office of Broward County investigated a computer that downloaded child pornography files. The office then released a statement that revealed more than 210 files contained videos and photos of child pornography.

According to Vacchiano, the office eventually identified the suspect as James Jude Silverstone, 62, who worked as a volunteer Santa and a town commissioner in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea in Florida. After conducting a search warrant at the volunteer Santa’s residence last May, the authorities examined his electronic devices and reportedly discovered minors as young as infants engaging in sexual acts.

An unnamed neighbor claims that they have known the volunteer Santa’s character for 30 years as he “volunteers to do everything for everyone”.
