LYNDONVILLE – A prominent community leader in Lyndonville is facing child pornography and weapons charges.

Darren D. Wilson, 61, has been charged by the State Police with 10 counts of possessing a sexual performance of a child and criminal possession of a weapon in the 3rd degree.

The State Police on Monday charged Wilson. Last month the Bureau of Criminal Investigation Computer Crimes Unit received information from Internet Crimes Against Children on a possible case involving child pornography. Further investigation revealed that Wilson was in possession of child pornography and multiple unregistered pistols, State Police said.

Wilson is a trustee on the Lyndonville Village Board, president of Lyndonville Lions Club and president of the Lyndonville Area Foundation.

He has been turned over to the Orleans County Jail pending arraignment, State Police said.
