ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Trebor Conolly, 36, of Geneva NY, who was convicted of receipt of child pornography, was sentenced to serve 151 months in prison and 20 years of supervised release by U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa.

Assistant U.S. Attorney, Kyle P. Rossi, who handled 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. 
 
Today’s sentencing 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.
