Gouverneur man admits viewing minor’s sex act over Skype


A Gouverneur man faces 10 years’ probation after pleading guilty Monday in Jefferson County Court to an allegation that he watched a sexual performance by a teenager via Skype while he was deployed to Afghanistan.

Shawn S.S. Raymo, 23, also will be ordered at his Sept. 6 sentencing to register with the state as a sex offender for a guilty plea to use of a child in a sexual performance. He and his wife, Jessica M. Raymo, 21, were charged with inducing a 15-year-old girl into engaging in a sexual act that was broadcast to Mr. Raymo over the Internet in July 2011. Mrs. Raymo, who was living on Fort Drum at the time, said when she entered a guilty plea to use of a child in a sexual performance that, she did so at her husband’s request.

Mrs. Raymo pleaded guilty March 22 and was sentenced June 7 to 10 years’ probation and ordered to register with the state as Level 1 sex offender.
