BUFFALO, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Kevin James Fox, 63, of Limestone, NY, who was convicted of receipt of child pornography, was sentenced to serve 220 months in prison and lifetime supervised release by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo.

Assistant U.S. Attorney, Aaron J. Mango, who handled the case, stated that in May 2016, the defendant persuaded an adult female, identified as T.M., to find a minor male and engage in sexual activity with him for the purpose of producing a visual depiction. T.M. met a 16-year-old male (Victim 1) through Craigslist and began communicating with Victim 1 via text messaging that was sexual in nature. On June 1, 2016, T.M. picked up Victim 1 and drove to her residence, where she engaged in sexual activity with Victim 1.  T.M. used her cellular telephone to take approximately five photographs. T.M. then drove Victim 1 home and texted the images to a telephone number controlled by Fox. 

The defendant also persuaded T.M. to engage in sexual activity with a 17-year-old minor male (Victim 2) who was known to T.M. Between May 26 and June 21, 2016, T.M. engaged in sexual activity with Victim 2, at Fox’s request. T.M. also took photographs once again and sent the images to the defendant.

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation by Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Buffalo Office, under the direction of Gary Loeffert, Special Agent-in-Charge along with the Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office, under the direction of Sheriff Timothy Whitcomb.
