Cohoes man accused of soliciting explicit photos of a minor on Facebook


COHOES, N.Y. – The Albany County Sheriff's Office says a 26-year-old man has been arrested on child pornography charges after multiple exchanges on Facebook.

Officials say they have arrested Robert DuBuc, of Church Street in Cohoes, for allegedly possessing child pornography.

According to authorities, they received a complaint earlier this month that DuBuc was friends with a 15-year-old girl from Ohio on Facebook. Police say that the man was flirting with the minor and eventually began soliciting sexual explicit photos.  DuBuc is also accused of sending nude photos of himself to the girl in exchange for explicit photos of her. 

The Sheriff's Office says the 15-year-old female did send four sexually explicit photos of herself.  However, her mother found the pictures on the computer and alerted the Antwerp Police Department in Ohio. 

Antwerp PD contacted the Albany County Sheriff's Office after learning DuBuc was from Cohoes.

Authorities are investigating further to see if there are other victims.

DuBuc was charged on four counts of Possessing a Sexual Performance of a Child and Endangering the Welfare of a Child and was released on appearance tickets.
