ALBANY COUNTY, N.Y. -- A Massachusetts man is arrested after police say he persuaded a ten year old Albany County boy to send him explicit videos over the course of three months.
According to the department of justice, Brian Belanger, 21, met the child online through Playstation 3.
A criminal complaint says Belanger told the boy that someone was trying to kill him and that the child could help him by sending videos.
Law enforcement says they were alerted in late January after the child’s father found the emails and videos on the child’s iPad.
If convicted Belanger faces a minimum of 15 years in prison, potential fines of up to 250,000 and post release supervision.
