A Wappinger man was arrested for allegedly sending sexual images to a child.

On Monday, New York State Police from the Wappinger barracks in conjunction with the Dutchess County Child Advocacy Center arrested David Fernandes, 20, of Wappinger for disseminating indecent material to a minor, a class D felony.

In April, a parent reported a sexual offense to State Police in Wappinger. State Police investigators and the Dutchess County Child Advocacy Center conducted a two-month investigation that determined Fernandes sent inappropriate sexual material to a child under the age of seventeen, police say.

Fernandes was arraigned before the town of Wappinger Court and remanded to the Dutchess County jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bail bond. He's due back in court on June 27.

A full stay away order of protection was also requested on behalf of the victim and granted.
