Delaware County Man Sentenced to 210 Months for Transportation of Child Pornography

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – Daniel Miller, age 26, of Stamford, New York, was sentenced today to serve 210 months (17.5 years) in federal prison for using his cellphone to upload child pornography to an online cloud storage account announced Acting United States Attorney Antoinette T. Bacon and Special Agent in Charge Thomas F. Relford of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).

As part of his earlier guilty plea in United States District Court, Miller, who was twice previously convicted in Schoharie County Court: first in 2015 for Possessing an Obscene Sexual Performance by a Child, and then in 2017 for Sexual Abuse in the First Degree and Endangering the Welfare of a Child, admitted that while on probation for these prior convictions he uploaded images and videos of child pornography to his Dropbox account using a cellphone he was not permitted to have under the terms of his probation.

Senior United States District Judge Thomas J. McAvoy also imposed a 15-year term of supervised release, which will start after Miller is released from prison.  As a result of his conviction, Miller will also be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, and the Delaware County Probation Office and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Sahar L. Amandolare and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Adrian S. LaRochelle.

The case was prosecuted as part of Project Safe Childhood. Launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, Project Safe Childhood is 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.
