For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of New York

BUFFALO, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Corey Beasley, 37, of West Seneca, NY, was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with production, receipt, and possession of child pornography involving prepubescent minors. The charges carry a mandatory minimum penalty of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Caitlin M. Higgins, who is handling the case, stated that according to the complaint, in January 2023, a West Seneca police officer received a report that sexually explicit images were found on a tablet belonging to Beasley. Subsequently, a search warrant was executed at Beasley’s residence, during which 16 electronic devices were seized. A forensic examination of the devices recovered several naked and sexually explicit images of a minor victim. In addition, other images of suspected child pornography were found on Beasley’s devices.

Beasley made an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael J. Roemer and was held pending a detention hearing on May 2, 2023.

The complaint is the result of an investigation by the West Seneca Police Department, under the direction of Chief Edward Baker and Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Scarpino.

The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
