CT Man In Court For Assaulting Mutiple Child Victims & Child Pornography

David Csanadi, 34, of Newton, CT, appeared in Danbury court on Monday for sexually assaulting multiple child victims and was described by the presiding Judge Susan Quinn Cobb as a “predator and danger to society.” Judge Cobb declined the bail commissioner’s request to lower his $1 million bond amount by half.

Csanadi was charged with three counts of first-degree sexual assault, six counts of risk of injury and one count of possession of child pornography.

“The allegations are very, very serious and all the allegations have not been fully investigated,” Assistant State’s Attorney Colleen Zingaro said.

Newtown Police Chief Michael Kehoe said the investigation first began at the beginning of April when Monroe police gave them a tip about Csandadi’s involvement in an alleged child pornography case. “They gave us a tip and they gave us information that possibly one of our residents was in possession of child pornography,” Kehoe said of Monroe police.

On April 8, police served a search warrant on Csandi’s residence, and a week later, he was taken into custody based on materials seized at the home and additional investigation, Kehoe said.

“From that search and seizure warrant, we further investigated and came up with these charges that were issued last Friday,” Kehoe said.

“We got to a point where we knew we needed to make an arrest now,” he said. “We felt we needed to safeguard society. We had enough information with the preliminary part of the investigation that we said we need to arrest this guy now…But the investigation is continuing and ongoing and so I can’t say much right now.”
