Police in Monmouth County, New Jersey have arrested a 21 year old Middletown man who allegedly bragged online about being a pedophile.
Gary Wolchesky has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child – a third-degree crime punishable by 3-5 years in prison. He is being lodged at the Monmouth County Jail in Freehold in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Monmouth County prosecutors say they became interested in Wolchesky after viewing a YouTube clip of him discussing child pornography. Police and investigators then searched the Middletown man’s home, resulting in the discovery of images on the defendant’s computer that depicted children clearly less than sixteen performing sexual acts.
