U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of New York
BINGHAMTON, NEW YORK – Randolph Bullock, age 67, of Dryden, New York, was sentenced yesterday to serve 97 months in federal prison for possession of child pornography announced United States Attorney Carla B. Freedman and Acting Special Agent in Charge Alfred Watson of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
As a part of his prior guilty plea, Bullock admitted that in January of 2018 and April of 2021, he possessed images of child pornography on three separate devices, including images of prepubescent minors.
In reaching its sentence, the Court found that the defendant had committed a prior pattern of activity involving the sexual abuse or exploitation of two minor children who were four and six years old at the time of the conduct.
United States District Court Judge Glenn T. Suddaby also sentenced Bullock to 20 years of supervised release following his term of incarceration, and ordered him to pay restitution of $3,000.00 each to two of the children whose images he possessed. Upon release from imprisonment, Bullock must also register as a sex offender.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, New York State Police, Tompkins County Sheriff’s Department, Village of Dryden Police Department and the Tompkins County District Attorney’s Office and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kristen Grabowski as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.
