ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Trebor Conolly, 36, of Geneva NY, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa to receipt of child pornography. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment, lifetime supervised release, sex offender registration, and a $250,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney, Kyle P. Rossi, who is handling the case, stated that between September 6, 2017, and September 26, 2017, the defendant received nine videos and four images of child pornography via a peer-to-peer file sharing program. Conolly saved the child pornography on a personal computer. The videos and images depicted minors under 12 years old engaged in sexually explicit conduct with adults. Some of the videos and images depicted the sexual abuse of infants and toddlers. Conolly then distributed the videos over the internet by connecting to the peer-to-peer file sharing program.. 
           
The plea is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Child Exploitation Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert. 

Sentencing is scheduled for October 2, 2018, at 9:00 a.m. before Judge Siragusa.
