On Thursday, New York State Police from the Dover Plains arrested 30-year-old Anthony S. Powell of Amenia for disseminating indecent material to minors, a felony, and endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.

On May 8, troopers were dispatched to investigate allegations that Powell was exchanging inappropriate e-mails with a minor. An investigation indicated that Powell did send e-mails that were sexual in nature to a female who is under the age of 16, police say.

Powell was arraigned in the Town of Dover Justice Court and remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond. Powell is due to reappear in the Town of Amenia Court at a later date and time.
