Binghamton Man Sentenced for Child Pornography Offenses

Roland Kyzer Sentenced to Serve 32 Years in Prison for Possessing Child Pornography A Second Time

BINGHAMTON, NEW YORK –Roland Kyzer, Jr., age 49, of Binghamton, was sentenced to serve a total of 32 years in federal prison following his conviction for child pornography offenses, announced United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith and James N. Hendricks, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Kyzer, a registered sex offender, was serving a term of supervised release for an earlier federal child pornography conviction when U.S. Probation Officers found that he was continuing to download and collect sexually explicit images of children from the Internet.  In February 2018, Kyzer was tried before a jury in federal court in Binghamton, and convicted of receiving and possessing child pornography during the entire period of time he was on supervision. 

Hon. Thomas J. McAvoy sentenced Kyzer to 27 years imprisonment on the new offenses of receipt and possession of child pornography, with a consecutive sentence of 5 years for violating his conditions of supervised release.  Upon release from this term of imprisonment, Kyzer will be under supervision for 20 years, and will continue to be required to register as a sex offender.

This case was investigated by the FBI and the United States Probation Office for the Northern District of New York, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Miroslav Lovric and Lisa Fletcher.
