New charges filed against New Canaan man

(09/10/10) NEW CANAAN - Weston police have filed new charges against a New Canaan man who was arrested last month after a 10-hour stand-off with police.

Scott Deicas, 48, was arraigned Friday in Norwalk Superior Court, after investigators say they found dozens of explicit images of children on his computer.

Police say the July stand-off stemmed from threats Deicas had made against Weston and New Canaan officials.

Deicas is being held on $250,000 bond for the child pornography charges, in addition to the $250,000 bond he was already being held on. He is due back in court next month.
