Forestville Man Faces Child Porn Charges

FORESTVILLE, NY-- A Forestville man is accused of possessing child pornography.

Robert J. Howard, 62, is charged with 10 counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child and two counts of promoting a sexual performance, both felonies. 

A source tells 2 On Your Side Howard lives across the street from Forestville Central Schools and has served as scorekeeper for many sporting events held at the school. 

Howard was arraigned at the Town of Hanover Court and remanded to the Chautauqua County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail.

The Forestville Central School District issued this statement: 


Robert Howard is not an employee of the district.  He did serve as a scorekeeper.  This is an annual appointment.  A decision was made in July not to re-appoint, Robert Howard.  The District appointed a teacher to that position.   The District is working with the District Attorney to issue a stay away order, based on the severity of the charges.  The stay away order would restrict this individual’s access to school property and school functions
