ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Jordan Dunn, 26, of Rochester, NY, pleaded guilty to receipt of child pornography before U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, a lifetime period of supervised release, and a $250,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle Rossi, who is handling the case, stated that on September 18, 2019, members of the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force executed a search warrant at the defendant’s home in Rochester following a tip from a social media company. The tip indicated that an account holder had uploaded an image of child pornography using the company’s messaging application. The child pornography was subsequently traced to Dunn’s apartment in Rochester. A computer and phone belonging to the defendant were seized and found to contain multiple images and videos of child pornography. 

The plea is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Child Exploitation Task Force, under the direction of Acting Special Agent-in-Charge Robert Guyton.

Sentencing is scheduled for September 30, 2020, before Judge Wolford.
