A Brookline probation officer who’s also a Boston Little League umpire has been arraigned on several child exploitation charges, including child porn and human trafficking.

Michael O’Reilly, of West Roxbury, was released on $10,000 bail on Monday following his arraignment in Suffolk Superior Court for the “deeply disturbing” allegations. O’Reilly was previously arraigned on child exploitation charges, and was recently indicted on new offenses after a lengthy investigation, according to Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden.

O’Reilly has worked as a probation officer in Brookline District Court, and served as an umpire and umpire coordinator for Parkway Little League in West Roxbury. Prosecutors allege that many of the videos tied to this case appear to have been recorded inside the Brookline District Court Probation Department.

“These allegations are deeply disturbing,” Hayden said. “That a public servant who held a position of trust in the community stands accused of exploiting children makes this case even more concerning.

“I would like to thank all of our partners, locally, federally, and across jurisdictions, who have worked to hold this individual accountable,” the DA added.

The charges that O’Reilly faces are: trafficking a person for sexual servitude for enticing a minor to create and send him sexual images and videos; distribution of child sexual abuse materials (child pornography); dissemination of a matter harmful to a minor; posing a child in a state of nudity; and three counts of possession of child sexual abuse materials.

Prosecutors requested bail of $15,000, and O’Reilly was released on $10,000 bail.

He was previously charged in the West Roxbury Division of Boston Municipal Court for several of these offenses. The indictments moved his case to Suffolk Superior Court, the proper court for serious felony offenses.
