A Manhattan money manager convicted of stealing more than $2.4 million from investors to fund an extravagant lifestyle — including a penthouse apartment and a porn habit — was sentenced to up to 18 years in prison. Prosecutors ​Tuesday ​described Steven Canady as a huckster whose company, Alliance Warburg Capital, was nothing more than a front used to swindle at least seven victims — including a fashion designer. Assistant District Attorney Adam Maltz said the scheme funded a $25,000-a-month apartment at the Mandarin Oriental hotel, meals at high-end restaurants and an expensive pornography habit.

A Washington Heights computer repairman has been indicted for having a trove of child pornography — including bestiality — on his phone and laptop, prosecutors said Thursday. Luis Bonilla, 54, allegedly had graphic sexually explicit videos of children between ages three and 12-years-old and tried to hide his identity by using a cloned modem so another IP address was used.

DA Vance announced the indictment of Luis Bonilla, a computer repairman, for possessing graphic materials depicting the sexual assault of young children. The defendant is charged in a New York State Supreme Court indictment with Promoting a Sexual Performance by a Child and Possessing a Sexual Performance by a Child, among other charges.

A Colorado couple has dropped a federal lawsuit that sought to stop the Manhattan district attorney’s office from returning to the Republic of Lebanon an ancient marble bull’s head that prosecutors said had been looted during that country’s civil war.

The man who raped a woman who was jogging in the East River Park was sentenced to 40 years in state prison on Tuesday, prosecutors said.
