SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – Alan Longmore, age 66, of Fayetteville, New York, pled guilty today before United States District Judge David N. Hurd to one count of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography, announced United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith and Kevin M. Kelly, Special Agent in Charge of the Buffalo Field Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).  Longmore, who remains detained pending his sentencing, faces at least 180 months of imprisonment and up to 210 months of imprisonment on the charges when he is sentenced on October 1, 2020 in Utica, New York.  The Court will also impose a term of supervised release of between five (5) years and life, and Longmore will be required to register as a sex offender.

As part of his guilty plea, Longmore admitted that he received images and videos of child pornography through a Peer-to-Peer file-sharing program.  A forensic review of his laptop computer revealed that it contained numerous video files depicting child pornography.  After being confronted about these charges, Longmore admitted to engaging in this conduct for years. In addition to these video and image files, the defendant also admitted to secretly recording and subsequently possessing video files depicting two minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. 

Longmore’s case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations, Syracuse Office with assistance from the NYSP Computer Crimes Unit, and the Manlius Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Geoffrey J. L. Brown.
