BUFFALO, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Michael Milton, Sr., 42, of Buffalo, NY, who was convicted of production of child pornography, was sentenced to serve 262 months in prison and 10 years supervised release by Chief U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr.

Assistant U.S. Attorney, Aaron J. Mango, who handled the case, stated that on August 14, 2015, the defendant coerced a 17 year-old minor (Victim 1) to engage in sexual intercourse and oral sexual activity inside a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe vehicle that Milton owned at the time. The defendant produced visual depictions of the sexual activity using a cellular telephone. Those images were then stored on electronic storage devices. The investigation determined that Milton engaged in sexual contact with Victim 1 on various occasions between at least December 21, 2014, and November 6, 2015.

Milton was previously convicted of Rape in Erie County Court involving Victim 1 and another minor female, and he was sentenced to serve 25 years to life on that charge. 

The federal sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert; the Buffalo Police Department, under the direction of Commissioner Byron Lockwood; and the Cheektowaga Police Department, under the direction of Chief David Zack.
