The case of Danny Manich, 60, of Pelham on two charges involving obscene sexual performance of a child after an undercover investigation by the District Attorney’s Office Investigations Division High Technology Crime Bureau is scheduled for Feb. 18, 2020.
The date was given to Pelhams PLUS in reply to an inquiry sent to the Westchester District Attorey's Office.
Manich was arraigned on May 3, 2019. The felony complaint charges Manich with one count of Promoting an Obscene Sexual Performance by a Child and one count of Possessing an Obscene Sexual Performance by a Child. He was released on bail at his arraignment in White Plains.
The DA Office said that on April 15, 2019, Manich engaged in online communications with an undercover investigator in which he spoke about having sex with a 13-year-old child. At that time, he also sent pornographic images of a child to the investigator, believing he was communicating with someone who could procure him a child for sex.
In a second incident, May 3, 2019, the DA Office said Manich accessed, with intent to view, images of a child under 16 years old in a state of undress.
Manich was arrested by District Attorney’s Office Criminal Investigators on May 3, 2019 and arraigned later the same day. Pelham Police assisted.
