Child Porn Charges Filed against Nanticoke Man

WILKES-BARRE -- A man from Luzerne County, once arrested on child sex charges, now faces child porn charges.

Jayson Montanez, 31, was charged Friday with 19 counts of child pornography.

This is not the first time he has faced similar charges.

Montanez was arraigned in Wilkes-Barre Friday afternoon.

Investigators say he knowingly had 19 images of child pornography, some showing kids as young as 2 in prohibited sexual acts.

Law enforcement says the defendant's mother found the pictures on her son's cell phone and brought it to the attention of police back in February of this year.

Officers received a search warrant for his phone in June and found dozens of pictures of nude underage children.

Montanez has also faced other child sex abuse charges in 2014 and 2015, including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child, and aggravated and indecent assault of a child less than 13.

Montanez is currently locked up with bail set at $150,000.

    How do you face child sex charges in 2014 /15 and not be in jail in 2017 ? In the pedo witch hunt establishment . why is a real SEXUALLY VIOLENT PREDATOR ( pa designation type ) free without proper punishment ? How come mom and not parole is checking phone ?

    God Bless this perverts Mother. He first thought is to protect the children even at the expense of her son’s incarceration. Great Lady.

    He needs to learn that you never never keep porn on your computer or cell phone. Also there must be a lot of horny people in the Pennsylvania area with all of this sex going on all the time, I looked down below and it’s story after story, but then again it doesn’t surprise me, because Pennsylvania is a highly sexually repressed area to live. Most people around here are so uptight and conservative about sex in general, no matter who it involves. Pennsylvania is like living in the 1800’s with its outdated views and hypocritical overly religious people.

      Typical Hillary supporter. Liberal at the expense of even little children. Get a life you fool.

      Pa =Coal banks, Windmills, overrated high school sports, corrupt government, blight, ugly mountain laurels and pedos.

      Let’s not forget that tattoo parlors possibly outnumber beauty parlors in many small towns in NEPA

    Jeeeeez, cant the parole officer have found this? Should be a lifetime search on these folks, say, every 6 months on their computed devices.

    • think positive

      Parole Officers get a paycheck because they work for the state, not because they do a job!!!

    How the hell does this stuff get on the internet and cell phones? I guess no way to filter that out quick enough..some random depraved despicable dirtbag lame lowlife loser can snap it in a heartbeat and share from anywhere i guess! And then the other depraved despicable dirtbag lame lowlife losers look at it!

    I just don’t understand how à man can find a child sexually arousing is it due to a shortage of available women in PA or that there are to many that are 450 lbs. Wearing a tube top and jammie pants with 5 teeth ?

      No, altho there are women out there like that and i’m sure you look like Chris Pratt or Gerard Butler right? Sex has nothing to with it..well, NORMAL sex anyway. Newsflash, pedophiles aren’t normal. Pedophilia isn’t normal. And anyone named sasquatch shouldn’t talk.

      Sasquatch………it’s not about the sex so much as it is about the whole concept of destruction of innocence. A pedophile gets more excitement out of grooming their victim than they do the act, itself. Why do you think Sandusky went through so many children? Same with EVERY pedophile – they don’t just ruin one child. It is estimated that there are as many as 100 victims before a pedo is arrested or outed.

    Its sad that a mother of a grown man has to turn her sons phone in for child porn! I actually know the mother and she is a hard working nice lady! She did the right thing knowing everyone would know its her family! Heartbreaking

      Give this man’s mother a party and as much support as she’ll need. This is one of the most difficult tasks that a parent must face: a) hold your child (adult, or not) accountable, or b) live in denial while other innocent lives are destroyed. God bless this gal……honestly, she has my high regard.

      For the thing that was arrested……….what does it take before the Courts “get it” about these predators? They cannot, will not, and have never been acceptable to cure. Since the DSM-V was revised, everything is “acceptable,” now, and deviance is labeled as a “social perception.” What a CROCK.

      Cut it off, and drop this thing onto an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Give it a handful of seeds and a goat. Whatever happens after that is nobody’s business because nobody should care that one less predator has been removed from society.
