ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Jordan Dunn, 26 of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of receipt of child pornography, was sentenced, by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford, to serve 72 months in prison, followed by 10 years of supervised release.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle P. Rossi, who handled the case, stated that members of the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force executed a search warrant on September 18, 2019, at the defendant’s home in Rochester following a cybertip from an online social media company. The tip indicated that an account holder had uploaded an image of child pornography using the company’s messaging application. The image was traced to Dunn’s Rochester apartment, which he shared with co-defendant Jeffrey Wehs. Computers belonging to Wehs and Dunn were previewed and found to contain multiple images and videos of child pornography. 

Dunn and Wehs previously worked with children, including disabled children, within various organizations in the Rochester area. Wehs was previously sentenced to time-served and eight years of supervised release on August 20, 2020, after being convicted of possession of child pornography.   

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Child Exploitation Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Stephen Belongia.
