NORWICH – A Town of Greene man accused of generating and then sending child pornography over the Internet appeared in Chenango County Court Monday where police testified they had to record an alleged confession twice after an original DVD malfunctioned and failed to record any audio.
The New York State Police arrested 52-year-old Wyatt E. McDonough June 16 following a week-long investigation by the New York State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
McDonough is charged with predatory sexual assault against a child, a class A-II felony, first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, a B class felony.
District Attorney Joseph McBride said the allegations took place at McDonough’s residence, and involved the sexual abuse of a child as young as eight years old over a period of several years. According to the indictment the alleged crimes occurred over a period of time between 2004 and 2007.
On the day of his arrest, State Police Senior Investigator Lori A. Hochdanner said one group of officers picked up McDonough at his place of work and another raided his home with a warrant issued by the Town of Greene Court.
