Kingston Man Sentenced to 121 Months for Attempting to Entice a Child

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Daniel Jurow, age 37, of Kingston, New York, was sentenced today to serve 121 months in prison after being convicted of using the internet to try to entice a child to meet him for sex.

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and James C. Spero, Special Agent in Charge of the Buffalo Field Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

United States District Judge Mae A. D’Agostino also imposed a lifetime term of supervised release, to begin after Jurow’s release from prison.  Jurow’s conviction will also require him to register as a sex offender.

As a part of his guilty plea, Jurow admitted that on March 12, 2015, he travelled to Colonie, New York, where he had arranged to meet and have sex with a person he believed to be a 12-year-old girl. Instead, Jurow was arrested by law enforcement.

This case was investigated by HSI and the New York State Police, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Solomon B. Shinerock and Elizabeth R. Rabe. The case was investigated as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys Offices, 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 identify and rescue victims.
