Two men from Old Town who went to federal prison on child pornography charges have been arrested, again, for the same crime.

51-year-old Patrick Monahan and 46-year-old Kenneth McLay are registered sex offenders.

They appeared in federal court this week after police arrested them last Friday and were ordered held without bail.

Both of them pleaded guilty in the same case more than a decade ago and were sentenced in 2005.

Investigators say in the current case, Monahan posed as a 16-year-old boy online and exchanged sexually explicit pictures with a 15-year-old boy.

Court documents say Monahan and McLay both sent gifts to the boy's grandmother's home, but they never met the boy in person.

In 2005, McLay was originally ordered to serve 2-and-a-half years in prison.

Monahan was sentenced to almost 5 years.

Both of them violated their probation at some point and were sent back to prison.
