NESCONSET -

A Nesconset man is accused of sexually abusing a teen boy and possessing child porn.

Police arrested James Sheahan at his home on Sheppard Lane on Thursday.

Sheahan works at a hockey equipment store in Smithtown. The store did not give News 12 Long Island a comment about the situation.

Police are now asking parents to call if they know about any other possible victims.

Sheahan was arraigned on Thursday. His bail was set at $20,000 cash.
