Farmington Man Arrested for Child Sex Abuse in Orange County
State Police have charged an Ontario County man following a four-month investigation that they say revealed evidence of sexual abuse against a child.
Troopers arrested Arthur Bielewicz Junior, 51, of Farmington, on Tuesday. He is charged with criminal sex act, sexual abuse, disseminating indecent material to minors, endangering the welfare of a child and unlawful imprisonment.
Police say Bielewicz posed as a 30-year-old on the internet where he befriended a 13-year-old child in Orange County.
Troopers say Bielewicz developed a relationship with the child and eventually traveled to Orange County, where he forced the child to engage in sexual activity with him.
Bielewicz is being held in the Orange County Jail on $100,000 cash bail.
