BUFFALO, N.Y. - Acting U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Kevin D. Waczkowski, 34, of Elma, NY, who was convicted of possession of child pornography, was sentenced to 36 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie Lamarque, who handled the case, stated that on April 15, 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Violent Crimes Against Children Task Force executed a search warrant at the defendant’s residence and seized several electronic devices. Forensic examination determined that Waczkowski was in possession of thousands of images of child pornography, some of which depicted prepubescent children less than 12 years of age, and some of which depicted images of violence.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert.
