ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Frederick Trevitt, 63, of Newark, NY, who was convicted of possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor, was sentenced to serve 144 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan K. McGuire, who handled the case, stated that on January 4, 2023, Trivett possessed a laptop, which contained 368 images and 26 videos of child pornography. Some of the images and videos depicted prepubescent minors and included violence or the sexual abuse of an infant or toddler. Trevitt also admits that he engaged in a pattern of activity involving the sexual abuse of a minor for approximately seven years.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Scarpino and the New York State Police, under the direction of Major Miklos Szoczei II. Additional assistance was provided by the Wayne County District Attorney’s Office.
