Olean man pleads guilty to possession of child pornography

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of New York

BUFFALO, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Brian Graham, Jr., 34, of Olean, NY, pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael J. Roemer to possession of child pornography, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Franz M. Wright, who is handling the case, stated that in February 2021, Graham’s IP address was identified on a child pornography file sharing website. In June 2021, a search warrant was executed at Graham’s Olean residence, during which investigators seized various electronic devices. A forensic review recovered images and videos of child pornography on the devices. For instance, a USB hard drive contained at least 200 images and 300 videos of child pornography. Some of the child pornography included violence against children and the sexual abuse of an infant or toddler.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia.

Sentencing will be scheduled at a later date.
