Personal life[edit]

On May 10, 2011, Justiniano was arrested on charges of first-degree possession of child pornography, in connection with a July 2010 incident in which he allegedly gave a thumb drive containing child pornography to an employee of a funeral home by mistake.[2]

In November 2, 2012, Justiniano was sentenced to 10 years—suspended after he serves three years in prison—and followed by 10 years probation, after he pleaded guilty to second-degree possession of child pornography. When asked if had anything to add, he replied “I think I’m good.”[3][4]
