CORINTH, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A Saratoga County man, who already served time for possessing child pornography, was arrested again for the same crime.
Donald Sutherland, Jr. was arrested on February 23 on the felony charge of Possessing a Sexual Performance of a Child.
The 25-year-old is alleged to have possession of nude pictures of underage children on his cell phone. The pictures were originally located by his Saratoga County Probation Officer. Using the internet is a violation of the terms of his parole.
The phone was given to the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office for further investigation.
“So she asked him to turn the phone over, and he did, and upon her examining the phone, she came across a photo that was of concern to her,” Saratoga County Lt. Jeff Brown said. “So at that point she said, ‘I’m turning that over to the police.’”
Sutherland was processed and released and is scheduled to reappear in Milton Town Court at a later date to answer the charge.
Lt. Brown said the pictures do not appear to be of local children.
