Prior felon arrested on new child pornography charge

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

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Jordan Brodie, 37, of LeRoy, NY, was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with the receipt, distribution and possession of child pornography following a previous conviction for possession of child pornography. Brodie faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 15 years in prison, a maximum of 40 years, a lifetime period of supervised release, and a $250,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle P. Rossi, who is handling the case, stated that according to the complaint, in May 2023, Brodie, a convicted sex offender who was under the active supervision of the Genesee County Probation Department, became involved in a chat application in which he and others traded child pornography. Brodie uploaded at least one of the images to a different social media platform, which then reported the image to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Investigation by the New York State Police determined that the upload took place from Brodie’s home in LeRoy. A subsequent search warrant resulted in the seizure of Brodie’s phone, and the contents of the social media account that uploaded the image, both of which revealed images of child pornography depicting children less than 12 years old.  The images included children, some as young as six-years-old, engaged in sexual conduct with adults. 

In May 2021, Brodie was convicted of child pornography charges in Genesee County and was on probation.

Brodie made an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark W. Pedersen and was detained. 

The criminal complaint is the result of an investigation by the New York State Police, Lyons, under the direction of Major Miklos Szoczei II, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Child Exploitation Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia. 

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.
