TUPPER LAKE - A 17-year-old boy from Tupper Lake was arrested at about 2 p.m. today and charged with making a pornographic video with a local 11-year-old boy, police said.

The 17-year-old was charged with possessing a sexual performance by a child, a class E felony, use of a child in a sexual performance, a class C felony, and endangering the welfare of a child and forcible touching, both class A misdemeanors. Police released the teen's name, but the Enterprise is not naming him because he is not an adult.

Village police Chief Tom Fee told the Enterprise the 17-year-old had video on his computer which he made of the 11-year-old boy performing a sexual act on himself, and the 17-year-old then participated in the video, performing a sexual act on the boy.

Fee said the investigation begin in June, when police seized the 17-year-old's computer and other devices after getting a warrant in another matter. Two investigators with the state police Computer Crimes Unit's Northern Unit, based in Ray Brook, found the images and notified village police on Tuesday, Fee said.

"The assistance of this special unit was critical in the processing of video evidence secured by members of the Tupper Lake Police Department," Fee said in a press release.

Then village police had to figure out who the victim was, Fee said. He said that once they found him, the victim and his family were very cooperative.

The 17-year-old was arraigned this afternoon by acting village Justice Leonard Young and was remanded to Franklin County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond.

The investigation is ongoing, and there may be more victims and more charges pending, Fee said.
