A court date of October 16 for Rockaway resident Timothy Wayne, who was busted in his Rockaway Park Apartment on child pornography charges, has been postponed due to an illness of a family member. Wayne is now due back in court on November 28, Federal officials said that the matter has been rescheduled because “Wayne’s father is gravely ill.” Wayne, better known to the community as “Tim the Viking,” was indicted in the Eastern District Federal Court on July 17, charged with four counts of receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

Federal sources told The Wave this week that Wayne pled not guilty to the charges, but is involved in “extensive plea negotiations and undergoing a mental health evaluation.”

Wayne, a city Fire Department EMT is back to work, but has been placed on administrative duty, according to an FDNY spokesperson.

“He is restricted from patient interaction and care and restricted from driving any FDNY vehicle,” spokesperson Frank Dwyer said this week.

He also remains in his apartment at 164 Beach 122 Street in Rockaway Park. Wayne was released on $200,000 bond, secured by his parent’s Breezy Point home.

According to Wayne’s release papers, he can only leave his Beach 122 Street home for work, court appearances, medical appointments or attorney visits. He must wear a monitoring leg bracelet at all times.

In addition, he cannot “have any contact or association with any individual under the age of 18, except when the minor is in the presence of another adult who is the parent or guardian of the minor.”

As ordered by the court, all the computers were removed from Wayne’s Rockaway apartment and he is restricted from using a computer or accessing the Internet except for duties associated with his job.

Wayne was arrested on March 29 by federal officials who found such videos as “Toddler Girl: Stop, Don’t Stop,” “Studio 10YO,” and “Yo Girl, Pedoland.”

Wayne’s Internet address was one of those under investigation, court records show. Based on the Internet findings, a number of agents executed a warrant at Wayne’s Rockaway address on March 29. Among the computers in the apartment, Mancene found an external hard drive sitting on top of a desktop computer tower. A check of the external hard drive revealed videos and images depicting child pornography.

The contents of the videos were described in detail in the criminal complaint against Wayne. Some of them depicted pre-teen girls having sex with men and each other. Others were scenes of pre-teen girls undressing and caressing themselves for the camera.
