Son of Salsa Legend Willie Colon Busted With Child Porn

Patrick Colon

The son of iconic salsa musician Willie Colon has been arrested and charged with possession of child porn, police said.

According to the Westchester County District Attorney's Office, Patrick Colon, 21, was busted after investigators uncovered several images of children in sex acts on his home computer.

Officials say a history log on the computer showed that Colon file-shared and downloaded child pornography from his New Rochelle home, which ultimately led police to make the arrest.

Colon was arrested at his home Tuesday and charged with one count of promoting a sexual performance by a child and one count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child, police said.

After his arraignment in New Rochelle City Court, Colon was released after posting $2,500 bail. He is due back in court on March 24.

Colon, who is employed as an information specialist for the Big Apple's tourism board, NYC & Co., faces a maximum of 7 years in prison if convicted.

His father, Willie Colon, is a legendary Latin musician who has had many successful collaborations with salsa giants like Ismael Miranda, Celia Cruz and Soledad Bravo, and singer-songwriter Rubén Blades.
