WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - A Westchester man is facing a felony charge after being caught with a collection of child porn at his home computer.

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. announced on Wednesday that 29-year-old Richard Silva of Yonkers has been arraigned on a felony charge of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child.

According to Scarpino, the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office received information that a computer at Silva’s home may have the child porn on it, leading to the execution of a search warrant at his residence.

Scarpino said that on Sept. 11, the warrant was executed at his Yonkers home, where a computer was seized. Forensics performed on that computer revealed more than 100 images and videos of children engaging in sexual acts.

Silva was arrested on Wednesday and pleaded not guilty to the charge in court. Bail has been set at $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond. He is due back in court next month to answer the charge, where he will face up to four years in state prison.
