Sheriff’s officials say 44-year-old James “Tony” Amato of Downsville is charged with unlawful dissemination or publication of an intimate image.

Authorities say Amato was taken into custody by the town of Colchester Police and turned over to the Sheriff’s Office.

Delaware County Sheriff’s officials say early in November of 2019, Amato allegedly posted an image of a person on a public social media page without that person’s consent.

He was released on his own recognizance and ordered to appear in Village of Walton Court at a later date.
