A 23-year-old Rochester man was arrested after investigators in Ontario County discovered he was sending inappropriate text messages to a 16-year-old victim.
Deputies say that Joseph J. Dalle, 23, of Rochester was charged with first-degree disseminating indecent materials to a minor after an investigation revealed that during February he engaged a 16-year-old by sending inappropriate text messages.
In those text messages, deputies say he sent several text messages describing sexual conduct, as well as a photo of his genitals.
Dalle was taken into custody and transported to the Farmington Town Court where he was arraigned and subsequently remanded to the Ontario County Jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 secured bond.
The Yates County Sheriff’s Office were also involved in the investigation due to their jurisdiction where further charges are pending against Dalle.
