East Durham Man Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography Charges
ALBANY, NEW YORK – Gregory Kurzajczyk, age 69, of East Durham, New York, pled guilty today to distributing and receiving child pornography.
The announcement was made by United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and James C. Spero, Special Agent in Charge for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
Kurzajczyk faces at least 5 years and up to 20 years in prison, and a term of post-imprisonment supervised release of at least 5 years and up to life, when he is sentenced on January 4, 2017 by United States District Judge Mae A. D’Agostino. A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statute the defendant is charged with violating, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other factors. Kurzajczyk would also have to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.
As part of his plea, Kurzajczyk admitted that between July 16, 2014 and January 19, 2015, an undercover law enforcement officer using an Internet file-sharing application downloaded child pornography images and videos from Kurzajczyk’s computer. Kurzajczyk also admitted to using the file-sharing application to download child pornography.
This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Colonie Police Department, with the assistance of the U.S. Secret Service, and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Barnett.
