A gay dentist from the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan was arrested Friday and accused of a laundry list of heinous offenses that include drug possession, child pornography, sex with animals and intent to transmit HIV to his sexual partners.

According to a report in The New York Times, authorities began investigating Dr. John Wolf, a well-respected dentist with an office in Chelsea, after a drug dealer who was arrested in March told police that he traded crystal meth with him in exchange for dental work.

According to the dealer, Wolf showed him video footage of "infants and toddlers being sexually abused by adults." Additionally, the dealer turned FBI informant also secretly recorded Wolf describing sex parties he allegedly attended in Brooklyn where he claims "participants would engage in sexual intercourse with animals."

The Times also notes that Wolf, who was once a well-known AIDS activist and is himself HIV positive, was recorded bragging about poking holes in condoms to intentionally spread his virus to men he had drugged.

The New York Daily News reports that last Monday prior to his arrest, Wolf allegedly showed an undercover FBI agent video footage of child pornography inside his dental office on West 15th Street. He then reportedly transferred 23 video files to a flash drive and gave it to the agent.

A raid by federal agents of Wolf's Chelsea office and West Village apartment found drugs and a drive filled with 246 video files, mostly child pornography.

"Drug investigations have taken us down dark roads before," said DEA special agent James J. Hunt in a statement. "But nothing darker than the office practices of Dr. Wolf."

Dr. Wolf appeared in Federal District Court in Brooklyn on Friday where he was charged with conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with the intent to distribute and with possession and distribution of child pornography.

Wolf is currently being held in custody. A bail hearing for Tuesday was requested by his attorney. If convicted, Wolf could spend 20 years in prison.

The FBI asked that anyone who is a victim or suspects a family member may be a victim of Wolf's, to call the feds at (212) 384-5000.
