Sex Offender Faces Child Porn Charges in Yorktown

YORKTOWN, N.Y.—A convicted sex offender residing in Mahopac who was charged with three counts of third degree criminal sexual act and four counts of endangering the welfare of a child last month now faces another felony of possessing a sexual performance by a child, police said.

Yorktown Police said that, while executing a search warrant at the Putnam County home of Jonathan DeLaura, they found an electronic device containing child pornographic material. Police arrested DeLaura last week and charged him possessing a sexual performance by a child.

Police said they were searching DeLaura's home following a sting operation. According to police,  DeLaura had met boys on the Internet and tried to engage in sexual acts with at least one of them in person.

In 2009 DeLaura was convicted of engaging in sexual conduct with a 12-year-old boy.

DeLaura was arraigned and remanded to Westchester County Jail without bail.

Last week, the Sherriff’s department said they were continuing to search for any other victims of DeLaura , and was asking anyone who was contacted by him online or met him in person to call them at 845-225-8060.
