A Westchester County man is facing charges after allegedly attempting to arrange to have sex with a child online through an undercover investigator.
Pelham resident Danny Manich, 60, was arraigned on Friday on two charges involving the obscene sexual performance of a child after an undercover officer with the Westchester County District Attorney’s office busted him online.
Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr., said that on April 15, Manich was involved in online communications with an undercover investigator, at which time he allegedly spoke about having sex with a minor. He proceeded to send pornographic images of a child to the investigator, believing he was speaking with someone who could arrange for him to have sex with a minor.
On Friday, May 3, Manich was found to be in possession of child pornography involving images of a child under the age of 16 “in a state of undress,” Scarpino said. Manich was arrested that day by police in Pelham and arraigned.
Manich was arrested and charged in White Plains City Court with one count of promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child and one count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child. He was released and scheduled to appear back in court on Tuesday, May 28.
