BUFFALO, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Patrick Malloy, 33, of Buffalo, NY, pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography before Senior U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Russell T. Ippolito, Jr., who is handling the case, stated that on June 24, 2023, a search warrant was executed at Malloy’s residence and several electronic devices were seized. The devices contained approximately 28,000 images of child pornography, including images of prepubescent minors under the age of 12 engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia. 

Sentencing is scheduled for December 6, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. before Judge Skretny.
