A Shirley man charged with allegedly committing multiple sex acts with a minor will face a judge Tuesday to be arraigned on a grand jury indictment, Suffolk County prosecutors said.
Sean Coraggio, 22, has been ordered to appear before Judge Steven Braslow on Tuesday to be arraigned after being indicted by a grand jury on multiple felony and misdemeanor charges, according to prosecutors and court records. He has been jailed since his arrest last week and remains behind bars in lieu of $60,000 bail.
Coraggio was arrested on Dec. 23 after police executed a search warrant at his home on Forrest Avenue in Shirley. According to a News 12 Long Island report, prosecutors said Coraggio was found with hundreds of images of child pornography. Police said he also allegedly committed multiple sex acts with a minor. Details about the charges against him have not been released.
The charges against Coraggio remain sealed until he is arraigned Tuesday morning. His attorney did not immediately comment Monday evening about the case.
When he was arrested, Coraggio was charged with criminal sex acts with a minor, promoting the sexual performance of a child, possessing a sexual performance by a child and acting in a manner injurious to a child younger than 17 years old.
Police said Coraggio has worked as a security guard in the William Floyd and Longwood school districts and also worked as a contractor at Stony Brook University.
In a statement, a spokeswoman for the Longwood Central School District said school officials were advised of Coraggio’s arrest last week, but were not provided with any information about the charges. The spokeswoman said Coraggio had attended two training sessions in September in an effort to be hired as a substitute security guard, but his “employment with Longwood Schools never deployed.” She said that he had always been accompanied by a full-time staffer when he was on school grounds and has not returned to the school since.
A William Floyd spokesman said Coraggio worked as a substitute school guard for three days in September and was partnered with a veteran employee. The spokesman said that after Coraggio’s “failure to maintain the ongoing civil service requirements” for his job, he was “no longer called in for substitute employment.” He said all potential employees are subjected to a background check and fingerprint screening.
A spokeswoman for Stony Brook University did not respond to a request for comment.
