MASSENA- A Massena man was sent to the county jail Friday after being charged with possessing and promoting child pornography.

Massena-based state police Bureau of Criminal Investigations charged Christopher J. Durand, 34, with a felony count of possessing a sexual performance by a child and a felony count of promoting a sexual performance by a child.

He was arraigned in village court and sent to the St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, on $50,000 bail or $100,000 bond, to reappear Wednesday afternoon.
