CENTRAL ISLIP - A prominent East End architect has gone from designing houses to being under house arrest following a day in court.

Jay Lockett Sears is out on bond following a court appearance today in Central Islip on six child pornography charges. Investigators say Sears took photos of young women at various events and superimposed their faces on adult female bodies in pornographic photos. Lockett is also accused of superimposing his face on male bodies in pictures.

The 73-year-old architect has designed homes for Susan Lucci, Michael J. Fox and Clint Eastwood. He was also once nominated for Oprah Winfrey’s Angel Network. He is under house arrest after his release on $250,000 bond today.

After his day in court, a driver picked Sears up and quickly left. His lawyer had no comment.  Sears faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
