GANSEVOORT A Gansevoort man has been arrested, accused of sexually assaulting and raping a child, state police said.

The investigation began, police said, through a child pornography investigation.

Allen J. Millington, 26, of Gansevoort, was arrested and charged with predatory sexual assault against a child, first-degree rape, first-degree criminal sexual act and first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, all felonies.

The investigation began May 11 after a cyber tip led to a search warrant and the discovery Millington possessed and promoted child pornography, police said.

That led to felony counts of possession and promotion of a sexual performance by a child, felonies. He was arraigned and ordered held on $10,000 bail, police said.

Further investigation soon revealed information that Millington had direct sexual contact with a child victim under the age of 11, police said. The victim was known to Millington and not the subject of the child exploitation materials he is accused of possessing, police said.

He was turned over by the jail to state police on an arrest warrant in the follow up investigation last Wednesday.

Millington was then arraigned and ordered held without bail. He is due back in court later.
