Greene man arrested on child porn charges

GREENE – Village police arrested a South Canal Street man Wednesday morning for possessing and trying to send child pornography, according to Chief Steven Dutcher.

Dutcher said police seized numerous computers, photographs and videotapes containing illicit material involving children at the apartment of James W. O’Brien, 52, located on 41-A S. Canal St. across from the Greene middle and high schools.



O’Brien has been charged with possessing a sexual performance by a child and attempting to disseminate indecent material to minors, both felonies.

He was arraigned in Village of Greene Court and remanded to the Chenango County Correctional Facility on $2,500 bail.

“That was my recommendation to the judge,” said Assistant District Attorney Robert M. Larkin, referring to the bail amount set at the arraignment. “Mr. O’Brien has no criminal record of any kind.”
