DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - State police from the Wappinger barracks arrested a 27-year-old Albany area man in relation to an investigation involving the distribution of child porn in Dutchess.

An investigation in conjunction with state police in Latham revealed that Michael P. Razzano of Watervliet had sent child porn to a complainant whom he had met on a dating website, police said.

Razzano was taken into custody after a tip was received that he was in possession of videos containing child porn and these videos were located at his residence.

Razzano was charged on Friday with promoting a sexual performance by a child, a Class D felony.

Razzano was arraigned at the Town of Wappinger Justice Court, and remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $50,000 cash or $50,000 bond.

If waived, Razzano is scheduled for appearance at the Town of Wappinger Justice Court on Tuesday, Sept. 5.
