Avon Man Sentenced in Child Pornography Case
ROCHESTER, N.Y.-- U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that Timothy P. Glavin, 32, of Avon, N.Y., who was convicted of production of child pornography, was sentenced to 15 years in prison and 15 years of supervised release by U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Tiffany H. Lee, who handled the case, stated that the defendant used a minor under the age of 13 to produce images of that minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct. In August 2012, the images were discovered on the defendant's cell phone by his wife who reported the images to the Livingston County Sheriff's Office.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.

Spero, the Livingston County Sheriff's Office, under the direction of Undersheriff James Szczesniak, and the Livingston County District Attorney's Office under the direction of Greg McCaffrey.
