     BUFFALO, N.Y.--U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that Daniel Cay, 26, of Buffalo, N.Y., who was convicted of possession of child pornography, was sentenced to 10 years in prison by U.S. District Court Judge Richard J. Arcara. 

            Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael DiGiacomo, who handled the case, stated that the Buffalo Police Department received information that the defendant possessed child pornography on a computer. Cay was subsequently arrested in January of 2013. A forensic examination of the computer revealed over 300 images of child pornography. Some of the images depicted violence against children.

            The defendant was previously convicted in 2006 for Sexual Assault of a Minor 2nd Degree in Connecticut.   

            The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation on the part of Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Buffalo Police Department, under the direction of Commissioner Daniel Derenda.
