ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Daryll Clark, 33, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of receipt of child pornography, was sentenced to serve 324 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr.

Assistant U.S. Attorney John J. Field, who handled the case, stated that Clark met a 15year-old girl (Minor Victim 1) in an online chat room where he purported to be 24 years old. Between March 15 and May 2, 2020, Clark solicited and directed Minor Victim 1 to create sexually explicit images and videos. After producing the images and videos, Minor Victim 1 sent them to Clark via cell phone from Missouri to New York State. During this time, Clark was a registered sex offender under the supervision of New York State Parole. 
 
The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Stephen Belongia.
