A Bay Shore man was arraigned Tuesday on charges that included possessing child pornography, authorities said, a crime for which he was already convicted and on probation.
Cristhian Villavicencio, 25, of Reilly Street, was arraigned in First District Court in Central Islip, a day after Suffolk Police Computer Crimes Section detectives arrested him because, they said, he had child pornography on his cellphone.
He was arraigned before District Court Judge Gaetan Lozito on one count of possessing sexual performance by a child younger than 16 years old, a class E felony, and three counts of failing to register the social media accounts found on his cellphone, an apparent violation of state correction law and also an E felony, police and court records said.
Villavicencio was being held on $100,000 cash or $200,000 bond and he is due back in court on Friday, according to Suffolk District Attorney Timothy Sini's office.
Villavicencio already has a 2016 conviction for the same offense of possessing sexual performance by a child younger than 16 years old, police said.
His attorney could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
