UPSTATE MAN ARRESTED IN CHILD SEX SOLICITATION
Gary J. Ryan, a 37 year old upstate New York man, has been arrested in Nassau for attempting to send indecent materials to a child. Ryan, of Mechanicville, north of Albany, sent indecent materials on five different occasions in September to a person he believed to be a 14 year old boy. The police detective posing as the 14 year old received messages in which Ryan detailed various sexual acts he wanted to perform on the child. He also tried to arrange to meet the posing detective to engage in criminal sexual acts. Ryan was charged with disseminating indecent material to a minor in the first degree and five counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
