Feds: West Point staff sergeant arrested on child porn charge

Posted: Updated:

A West Point staff sergeant was arrested on a child pornography charge following an undercover FBI investigation.

Officials say 37-year-old Patrick Gorychka, of New Windsor, was chatting with an undercover agent for about a month on the free messaging app Kik.

Federal agents say he expressed his interest in "preteens" before sending over two links of videos and pictures of child pornography.

The West Point staff sergeant is now out on bail.
