Son of imprisoned Genovese mob boss busted for child pornography

The son of an imprisoned Genovese mob boss was busted Wednesday on kiddie porn charges in The Bronx, police sources told The Post.

Joseph Nigro, 35, was allegedly using a file sharing network to trade, store and download a mountain of sick images and videos showing children under 16 engaging in sex, sources said.

The Department of Homeland Security was alerted on Dec. 2 and quickly contacted the NYPD’s Computer Crimes Unit, sources said.

New York detectives and Homeland Security investigators paid Nigro a visit Wednesday at his Hollywood Avenue residence in the upscale Throggs Neck section of The Bronx, sources said.

After confiscating his computer, investigators analyzed the hard drive, which revealed the illegal images, sources said.

Nigro confessed to the crime and was slapped with promoting and possession of sexual performance of a child.

His mobbed up father, Arthur Nigro, 69, was sentenced to life in prison two years ago for ordering the rub out of Massachusetts crime boss Adolfo "Big Al" Bruno.

Two other goons from Springfield Massachusetts were also given life terms for the 2003 hit.

At the time, Arthur was the acting head of Genovese crime family.
