ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Vincent Colunga, 28, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of possession of child pornography, including prepubescent images, was 24 months in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr.  
Assistant U.S. Attorney Melissa M. Marangola, who handled the case, stated that between September 25 and October 24, 2018, the defendant utilized a peer-to-peer file sharing network to obtain and share images of child pornography. On October 24, 2018, investigators executed a search at his residence and seized numerous electronic devices, which contained at least eight videos and several images of child pornography, including images of prepubescent children and violence.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Stephen Belongia.
