For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of New York

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Bradley Boisen, age 26, of Waterford, New York, pled guilty today to the attempted sex trafficking of a child.

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Carla B. Freedman and Janeen DiGuiseppi, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Boisen admitted that on April 21, 2021, he arranged to pay $60 to another person in order to have sex with a 14-year-old child. 

Boisen’s sentencing is scheduled for March 21, 2023 in Syracuse before Senior United States District Judge Norman A. Mordue. 

Boisen faces a mandatory minimum term of 10 years in prison, a maximum term of life, a fine of up to $250,0000, and a term of supervised release of at least 5 years and up to life.  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.  As a result of his conviction, Boisen will also be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison. 

This case was investigated by the FBI and its Child Exploitation Task Force, which includes members of the New York State Police and the Colonie Police Department, and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rachel Williams as part of Project Safe Childhood.

Launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, Project Safe Childhood is led by the United States Attorney’s offices and 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.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit
