BUFFALO, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Dustin Post, 25, of Fredonia, NY, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo to production and possession of child pornography. The charges carry a mandatory minimum penalty of 25 years in prison, a maximum of 50 years in prison, and a fine of $250,000.

Assistant U.S. Attorney David J. Rudroff, who is handling the case, stated that the New York State Police in Fredonia began investigating the defendant 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 abuse of a 12-year-old girl. On November 15, 2019, investigators removed a cellular telephone, a laptop computer, and four flash drives from the defendant’s residence. An initial review of the electronic devices recovered multiple images and videos of suspected child pornography.

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

Sentencing is scheduled for October 1, 2021, at 9:30 a.m. before Judge Vilardo.
