ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy Jr. announced today that Michael Krepp, 58, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of possession of child pornography, was sentenced to serve 135 months in prison and 15 years supervised release by U.S. District Judge Charles J. Sirgusa.

Assistant U.S. Attorney John J. Field, who handled the case, stated that between September 9, 2017, and January 22, 2018, an FBI Special Agent, working undercover, discovered multiple files containing videos and images of child pornography. Some of the videos and images depicted prepubescent children in sexual situations. Investigators determined that the IP address connected to the files resolved to one utilized by the defendant. Digital media recovered from Krepp in February 2018 contained child pornography.

The defendant was previously convicted of Rape 3rd in State Court and is a registered sex offender.
 
Today’s sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Buffalo Division, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert.
