65 year old Americo Martinucci of Sidney Center was arraigned in federal court in Binghamton.

He's also known as Tony Martinucci, former owner of Tony's Pizzeria in Unadilla.

Investigators say in 2003, he videotaped himself having sex with a female under the age of 12 in Delaware County.

Martinucci did not enter a plea on the charge today.

"We are interested in getting full disclosure of everything they have and weighing the evidence. If it is as serious as they say it is, we'll make decisions from that point," says defense attorney Lee Kindlon.

Martinucci was arrested yesterday on the federal charge of Production of Child Pornography.

He was previously charged with rape and sex abuse last October in Delaware County.

State Police said he was accused of attacking a child under the age of 11 in 2003.
