New York State Police Investigators from SP Princetown extradited a 44-year-old Schenectady man from the state of California on child porn charges and charged him with the Class E Felony of Bail Jumping 2nd.     

Lance E. Potter of Schenectady was initially charged on October 11, 2019 in Schenectady City Court with the Class D Felony of Promoting a Sexual Performance by a child and the Class E Felony of Possession of a sexual Performance by a Child. After missing multiple court appearances, a bench warrant was issued in Schenectady City Court for Potter on his pending charges.

Potter was eventually located in the state California where he was taken into and taken into custody on the warrant by local law enforcement officers.  After waiving extradition, Potter was transported back to Schenectady County by State Police Investigators on the warrant and was charged with Bail Jumping 2nd.   

Potter was lodged at the Schenectady County Jail where he is awaiting a bail hearing on the matter. 

The costs associated with Potter’s extradition were paid by the Schenectady County District Attorney’s Office.
