BUFFALO, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Dustin Post, 26, of Fredonia, NY, who was convicted of production and possession of child pornography, was sentenced to serve 50 years in prison by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo.

Assistant U.S. Attorney David J. Rudroff, who handled the case, stated that the New York State Police in Fredonia began investigating Post after receiving a parental complaint involving the commission of a possible sex offense upon a minor. In the summer of 2019, Post video-recorded his sexual abuse of a 12-year-old girl. On November 15, 2019, investigators removed a cellular telephone, a laptop computer, and four flash drives from Post’s residence. A forensic analysis of the electronic devices recovered multiple images and videos of child pornography. During the course of the investigation, a total of nine minor females and one adult female were identified as victims of Post.

The sentencing is a result of an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Acting Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Scarpino, and the New York State Police, under the direction of Major James Hall.
