Celebrity Magician Charged With Child Pornography
FBI officials found over 3,400 child pornography videos in the house of award-winning LA magician Jan Rouven on Wednesday.
Investigators raided Rouven’s house after tracing a video he shared online with an undercover agent back to his IP address. They found hard drives containing 3,486 kiddie porn videos and 111 pictures, including the video of a man having sex with a 3-4 year old boy that Rouven had originally shared.
His lawyers argue that, given that the incriminating evidence was found in his pool house, it could have been placed there by any number of guests coming in and out of Rouven’s home. However, he was denied bail by a judge who deemed him a danger to the community and a possible flight risk.
Rouven, a celebrated 10-year veteran of the trade with over 3 million live audience members and 55 million TV viewers in his career, was immediately fired from his “The New Illusions” show at the Tropicana Las Vegas.
