Lockport man previously convicted of endangering the welfare of a child charged with possession of child pornography
BUFFALO, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that a federal grand jury returned an indictment charging Anthony V. Giambrone, 40, of Kenmore, NY, with possession of child pornography involving prepubescent minors, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
Assistant U.S. Attorney John D. Fabian, who is handling the case, stated that according to the indictment, in April 2020, Giambrone, currently a teacher with Erie 1 BOCES working at Maryvale Intermediate School, possessed images of child pornography on two separate laptop computers. The images included prepubescent minors.
Giambrone made an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael J. Roemer and was released on conditions.
The indictment is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia and the Town of Tonawanda Police Department, under the direction of Chief James Stauffiger.
The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
