TUPPER LAKE - A local 18-year-old was sentenced Monday to 180 days in jail and 10 years of probation for having pornography involving a child.

The Tupper Lake teen, whose name was withheld because he was tried with youthful offender status, pleaded guilty Monday to one count of possession a sexual performance by a child. He was 17 years old when he was charged last summer.

He was originally charged with the use of a child less than 17 in a sexual performance, two counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child, forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child.

Most of the charges stemmed from video on the teen's computer of an 11-year-old boy performing a sexual act on himself, and then the defendant performing a sexual act on the 11-year-old. Police found the video after seizing the older boy's computer and other devices after getting a warrant on another matter.

One of the original charges of possession of a sexual performance by a child stemmed from a second video involving a 14-year-old boy.

In addition to six months in jail and 10 years of probation, the 18-year-old has orders of protection for the two younger boys, said Assistant District Attorney David Hayes.
